We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Norwalk

Tanya or “BABA” (known as “grandmother” in her Macedonijan language), was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, who will be greatly missed by her family and friends. She was a wonderful care giver to her husband Walter until his passing in February of 2022. Tanya enjoyed baby sitting all of her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She always had a smile when they would visit and loved seeing the “granddogs” and “grandcats” as well. She truly looked forward to her daily visits and talks with her neighbor Thelma. Tanya had worked at Fanny Farmer and Meeks Pastry for a short time.
Tanya is survived by her son, Dennis (Dijana) Sazdanoff; daughter, Stella (Gary) Barman; brother, Nick Smith; grandson, Peter; granddaughters, Kathy (Mikey), Stephanie (Dan) and Jennifer (Dan); great grandkids, Alivia, Mason and Logan; step great granddaughter, Lilly; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.

The family would like to express their gratitude to the team at Southern Care Hospice, Dr. Tim Adomowicz office, Fisher-Titus Medical Center, and Dr. Crosby’s office for all of the care and compassion.
