Dafina "Zina" (Baci) Vurmo
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Dafina (Zina) Vurmo, on May 17, 2022, with her family by her side. She was 69 years old. After a 2-year battle with pancreatic cancer, Zina, our beloved warrior, wife, mother, nena, mother-in-law, godmother, cousin, and friend, found peace. We will all miss her more than words can say.
Zina’s life touched the hearts of so many and her presence in our lives made us better people. She taught us how to be strong, courageous, and love unconditionally. She made us laugh, feel loved, and always let us know how proud she was of us.
Zina was born on July 19, 1952, in Berat, Albania and called the city of Boston her home. Zina is preceded in death by her parents Theodhora and Vangjel Baci, her sister Donika Marko, and her brothers Mitaqi, Manoli, Ilia and Theodhor Baci.
She is survived by her adoring husband, Llazo Vurmo, loving daughters Denada Joann Vurmo and Maria Manjola Coakley and her husband Kevin Alan Coakley, her wonderful grandchildren, Aiden and Julia Coakley and many nephews, nieces, and cousins.
