Katie Zabronsky Death – Katie Emma Zabronsky of Stamford, Connecticut passed away on Saturday, November 18, 2023. She was 30 years old and died after battling ovarian cancer. Zabronsky was diagnosed in 2019, when she was 26 years old.
She was consistently patient, extraordinarily kind, and saw the best in every individual. She embodied the epitome of companionship: considerate, considerate, your greatest supporter, and the most empathetic listener. It was her belly laugh that was the most endearing and contagious. Her essence was exquisite, if not the most exquisite.
Katie served as a licensed social worker at Sanctuaries for Families, where she provided assistance to children who had been exposed to or had witnessed domestic abuse. She particularly relished working with adolescents and was consistently impressed by their profoundness and empathy.
She cherished spending time with her family in Stamford, sat ardently on the sofa in front of the fire, and was completely devoted to them. (Although we penned it, it remains true:) She cherished Brooks, her pet. She cherished her cousins, acquaintances, and grandmothers, who were all named Marcia. She delighted in pottery-making, hosting dinner parties, watching Gilmore Girls (anyone but Dean), and chuckling at the Park Slope Food Co-op’s insanity.
The family will conduct a private burial on November 20, from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m., at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center, followed by a memorial service. In lieu of floral arrangements, memorial contributions may be directed to ovarian cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering or PDI, an organization situated in rural eastern Uganda dedicated to advancing children’s education (https://pdiuganda.org/in-memory-of-katie-zabronsky/); the latter can be reached at http://mskcc.convio.net/goto/katiezabronsky.
