Donna Podhayny Zieky
Donna M. (Podhayny) Zieky, 61 years of age, of East Hampton, formerly of Glastonbury and Marlborough, beloved wife of 40 years to Eliott Zieky, surrounded by her family passed away on Friday July 11, 2014 after a short but courageous battle with cancer. Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., she was the daughter of the late Alexander and Edna (Maetzing) Podhayny.

Donna attended Fairleigh Dickenson University and graduated from Central Connecticut State University with a degree in education. Her life was dedicated to raising her children. Donna had an interest in art and taught herself how to paint. Her landscape and floral works are displayed in many homes throughout Connecticut. Painting to her was not intended to be a business, but a passion that helped display her infectious smile seen through her paintings. She loved walking with her dog Charley, kayaking at Lake Pocotopaug, golfing and playing tennis with her special group of friends. Her greatest enjoyment in life came from spending time and interacting with her family and most recently her beloved grandchildren.

She leaves her husband Eliott S. Zieky; their children, Ben Zieky of New York, N.Y., Max Zieky and his wife Cortney of Austin, TX., and Jennifer Corcoran and her husband Todd of Huntington, N.Y.; her grandchildren, Jack and Olivia Corcoran, and Zander Zieky; her brother-in-law, Jeffrey M. Zieky and his wife Stephanie and their children Dan and his wife Holly, and Sarah Zieky, all of Scottsdale, AZ.

Donna’s family would like to acknowledge and thank the entire staff on the 11th floor ICU wing at Hartford Hospital for the extraordinary care and attention given to Donna over the course of her illness.
