Susan P. Zaveruha, R.N.
May 19, 1947 โ€“ February 6, 2020
Susan Zaveruha, R.N., 72, of Coupeville, WA., passed away on February 6th, 2020, due to complications of diabetes. She was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut on May 19th, 1947 to parents Dorothy and Lionel Probert.

She is survived by her loving husband of 53 years, Paul Zaveruha, M.D., residing on Whidbey Island since 1982, both of them having the privilege of serving the medical needs of the people of this community for 20 years: her as Registered Nurse in Whidbey General Hospitalโ€™s Emergency Department and Intensive Care Unit and he as General Surgeon at WGH since 1982. Susan is also survived by her daughter, Deborah Z. Burrus; son-in law, Robert Burrus; and twin grandchildren, Brent and Sydney, all of Albuquerque, NM; along with daughter, Cynthia Zaveruha of Agoura Hills, CA.; and son, Alexander Zaveruha of Petaluma, CA.

Also surviving Susan are her sisters: Sally Caldarazzo of Oak Brook Terrace, IL, and Marguerite Moller (Kent) of Newtown, CT; and brothers: William Probert of Newtown, CT, and Thomas Probert (Lynn), of Stratford, CT.

Susan worked as an LPN to support her husband during his medical school training in Washington, DC. She then furthered her education at State University of New York in Morrisville College and returned in 1978 to the medical profession as a registered nurse in New York, Virginia, and Washington, culminating in her 20 years as R.N at Whidbey General Hospital. Her life was dedicated to her family and to the care of her patients above all else. Susan was a totally giving person.

A memorial service for her will be held on Saturday February 22, 1 pm at Wallin Funeral Home with a reception to follow.

Remembrances may be given to the American Diabetes Association in her name.

I remember working many nights with Sue and learning from her how to be an ER nurse. I remember fondly going to her home and the delicious food she made. I am so thankful for all the happy memories and things I learned from Sue. She will be missed by many. My condolences to Sue's family and many friends.

Dear Paul and family. Learning of Sue's passing was gut-wrenching. Learning she was only 2 years older than I and thinking back to the days when Alex and Becca were in school together was a reminder of days many years ago when we had relatively frequent contact. Time is marching on. Praying for your peace and comfort and many memories to bring you joy in the future.
