Her Life

Soraya Aylin Burcu

We lost a loving wife, daughter, sister, and mother recently to pancreatic cancer, far too soon.
Soraya Aylin Abay-Burcu was a wife to Adam; mother to Adrastos, Viviana, Issiah, Remi, Ophelia, Beatrice, and Ahmet. Daughter of the late Yusuf and Grace Abay; sister to Leyla and Mikael; and grandmother to Wyatt, Nadia, Aurelie, Noelle, Akasma, Ayleen, Miray, Genevieve, Reagan, Robert, Hallenie, John, Xavier, Lucas, and Beatrice Jr.

Soraya's children were the love of her life. They all would watch the Fenerbah├že Soccer games every time a game was on. Soraya loved country music, soccer, fashion, and of course, cooking.

Soraya was a full time mother, while her husband was at work. Being the only adult at home, Soraya found it difficult to handle seven kids at once, not including the four-legged household members.

Soraya lived in Michigan for most of her life, after immigrating from Turkey when she was fifteen years old. She lived in Birmingham, Michigan, and passed away in Birmingham Michigan.

Soraya Burcu will be dearly missed. Her family thanks you for your prayers.
