On Friday morning, March 20, 2020, we found out that our sweet Zaida from the Translations department succumbed to her long battle with cancer Thursday evening, March 19. Zaida was a talented, dedicated employee and friend to all. Even as she physically suffered through rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, she kept a smile on her face and worked as much as she could. Though we knew we would miss her, I think we all breathed a sigh of relief when she decided it was time to retire and spend the time she had left with her husband and two sons, whom she loved so dearly. In the end, she was surrounded by love; and although she left this world too soon, she left an indelible mark on all of us.
We do not know about services or requests for remembrances at this time. As soon as we receive more information, we will pass it along.
Our hearts and thoughts go out to Zaida’s family, friends, and all who knew her at this sad time.
