Tatiana Britt of Glen Cove passed away peacefully in her home. She is predeceased by her loving husband of more than 50 years, Michael Britt Senior, and the devoted mother of Michael John Britt Jr. She is the sister of Zinaida Mary Laskowski and daughter of John and Wera Erman, who have also gone before her. Tania is reunited with her family in God’s loving arms.

She and her husband settled in Glen Cove, and were residents of Glen Cove for over 50 years. Together, Tania and her husband first established a professional photography studio, then later they opened MBI Firearms in Mineola, a successful shop and sporting club.
