April 15, 1926 – June 9, 2011
Nancy Jane Tarzian died June 9 at the age of 85. She died peacefully at home surrounded by family.
Tarzian was a 46-year resident, a strong supporter of the arts and an avid reader. She loved gardening, and was a gourmet cook. She worked as a reference librarian at the Laguna Beach Public Library.
At 20, she married the love of her life, Ralph Tarzian, whom she had met five years earlier on a blind date in Long Beach. The couple were married 64 years and had three children, six grandchildren and seven great grand children. She dearly loved them all.
Her strength, courage, love and compassion was her precious gift to all of us. We will miss her dearly.
At Tarzian’s request, no service will be held. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to City of Hope, 1500 E. Duarte Road, Duarte, CA 91010.
