Zoe Nudell - a victim of impaired driving in Hamilton, Ontario

Zoe Nudell, age 33, died on October 31, 2013, at a hospital in Hamilton, Ontario.

On the evening of October 30, 2013, Zoe had been jogging on a city street. She was struck by a vehicle.

A witness kept the driver at the scene until the police arrived.

Joseph Warren, age 42, has been arrested in connection with this incident. In a breathalyzer test, he registered over three times the legal alcohol limit. He was also found in possession of weed.

Zoe was from Halifax. She had moved to Hamilton just a couple of weeks before to join her partner who is studying for a master's degree.

Zoe is well-known as an artist in Halifax. She was a graduate of the University of Toronto. She also held a master's degree in Atlantic Canada studies from St. Mary's University.

She was a skilled sailor, a devout Buddhist, and she loved working with teens.

Friends describe her as grounded, open, talented and a free spirit.

She is also described as intelligent, artistic and athletic.

The Buddhist community in Halifax are deeply mourning Zoe's passing. 
Light a candle for Zoe.  Light her way
to Heaven. 

Zoe is survived by many loving friends and relatives including her father, David; and her partner, Ben Gallagher. She was predeceased by her mother, Molly, in 2007.

God save us from the drunk and doped up drivers. They are killing us, Father. Amen.

God save us from the speeding drivers. They are driving us to our graves. Amen.

Pray that Zoe is in heaven. Pray that she is at peace and is with God. Amen.
