Marie D. (Testa) Tarzia, age 79, of Danbury, formerly of Norwalk, peacefully joined the Lord on June 26th with her family by her side. She was the wife of Michael G. Tarzia Sr.
Marie was born June 30, 1932 in Norwalk, the daughter of the late Samuel and Mary (Dominick) Testa. She was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend. Throughout the years she was her grandchildren's #1 fan in the stands as she supported them on the athletic fields. Marie's favorite pastime belonged to the competitive card playing games between she and her sisters. Marie loved her family unconditionally and will be sadly missed by all who knew her.
Marie was a longtime member of the Georgetown Bible Church. She prided herself on being a Christian woman.
The Tarzia family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to the staff at Danbury Hospital for their endless efforts and support during Marie's time of need.
