In memory of

Ankiné Zorian

July 6, 2021

The Zorian and Chochian families are saddened to announce the loss of Ankiné Zorian (nee. Nalbandian), who passed away peacefully on July 6th, 2021 at Fieldstone Commons Community Care in her 84th year. Beloved wife to Minas (who passed away in 1986). Proud mother to Arpie (husband Garo Chochian), Sarkis (wife Marcelle Zorian) and Stephan (partner José Martínez). Adored grandmother to Cynthia, Stephanie, Meeans, Serje and Stephan. Ankiné will also be missed dearly by her many nieces and nephews here in Canada, USA and Lebanon.
Ankiné was a symbol of kindness, compassion and unconditional love. She dedicated her whole life to her children and grandchildren. We will always be grateful for the love she had for us. She loved to travel and spend time with her family, swim in the ocean, cook for everyone, and listen to music. But there was nothing she loved more than spending time with her 5 grandkids. Their photos filled her bedroom, and the best laughter from her was when one of her grandkids said or did something to make her laugh. They will definitely miss her.
A Funeral Service will be held in Ankiné’s memory on Friday July 9th at 11:00 am at St. Mary’s Armenian Apostolic Church, 45 Hallcrown Pl, North York. Due to COVID-19, capacity limitations are in effect so we recommend confirming attendance with the family prior to the event. For those who wish to view the service remotely, please click here ( In lieu of floral tributes, the Zorian and Chochian families kindly ask that you consider making a donation to St. Mary’s Armenian Church in Ankiné’s memory. The Zorian and Chochian families greatly appreciate your ongoing support during this difficult time.
