Three months after this November 2007 celebration of Lindsay’s 24th birthday, the following obituary appears:
BUZIAK, Lindsay Elizabeth Born in Victoria, November 2, 1983. It is with broken hearts we announce that our precious, beautiful, vivacious, talented, fun-loving and successful ray of sunshine was horrifically taken from us and placed into the arms of God. Lindsay is survived by her mother, Evelyn Reitmayer; her father, Jeff Buziak; her sister, Sara Buziak; her maternal grandparents, Dorothy and Albert Reitmayer; her boyfriend, Jason Zailo; and his family. Lindsay is further survived by her Aunts, Uncles, cousins, and countless friends. Lindsay’s zest for life was contagious and the many dear friends she met along her journey were a testament to her generous and caring spirit. She exuded warmth, had a keen sense of fashion, an infectious laugh and a smile that lit up a room. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, February 9, 2008, at 1:00 p.m. at St. Andrews Cathedral, 740 View Street, Victoria, British Columbia. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Lindsay may be directed to the Alzheimer Society of British Columbia or the Canadian Cancer Society. We wish to thank everyone for their kind words, support and comforting actions. The outpouring of love is overwhelming. We also wish to thank and acknowledge the Saanich Police for all of their hard work and efforts in bringing to justice those responsible for this heinous crime. We ask that individuals with any information that will aid in the investigation to please contact police.
