We are deeply saddened to announce the unexpected passing of our dear mother Zofia Common, at Hamilton General Hospital, in the early morning hours on Monday, October 24, 2022 at the wonderful age of 91, with loving family by her side. The beloved wife to the late Dr. David Common; devoted mother to Barb Kolodziej, Ursula Jasinski and Henry Kolodziej; cherished Babcia to Justin, Tabitha, the late Thomas Jasinski, and Melissa; adored great Babcia to Zofia (Zoe), Hailey, and Daniel.
Zofia was born in Pustomyty, Poland to Walter and Stanislawa Werbski. She was one of five sisters and two brothers. She had a loving, caring and generous heart, always willing to give and help. Zofia never sat still. She filled a life of adventure with travelling, trying new things and seeing new places. She attended Mass regularly; loved spending time with her children and grandchildren; loved her cats, playing mini-golf, gardening, going to the movies and plays, and mini hotel get-aways.
Zofia was deeply loved and will be sorrowfully missed. She lived by the following:
Happy moments, praise God.
Difficult moments, seek God.
Quiet moments, worship God.
Painful moments, trust God.
Every moment, thank God.
“Laugh as we always laughed, at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me. Pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without effect. Without the trace of a shadow on it.” - Henry Scott Holland
