Obituary

Obituary for Bessie Gertrude Demczur (O'Neil)

DEMCZUR, Bessie Gertrude
It is with great sadness that the family of Bessie Demczur advises of her peaceful passing on Sunday, August 2, 2020. Born in North Salem, Nova Scotia, she moved as a child to South Maitland, Nova Scotia where she grew up with her sister and two brothers. She graduated high school and moved to Yarmouth for nurse’s training, graduating top in her class. Bessie continued her studies in Montreal, eventually moving to Ontario and finally settling in Toronto, where she raised a family with her beloved husband, Joseph. Bessie began her career as a surgical nurse and eventually became supervisor of nursing at Doctor’s Hospital in Toronto. Bessie loved being in nursing because she could help people get better. Bessie was predeceased by Joseph (1996); her daughter, Anne (2014); her siblings, Mae Lightfoot (2014) and John O’Neil (1987). She is survived by her loving son Michael (Jackie); her two granddaughters, Katherine (Kate) and Elizabeth; her brother George O’Neil (Charlene, 2007) and many nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Literacy Council York-Simcoe, https://www.skillsupgrading.ca/.
Friends may call at the Dods & McNair Funeral Home, Chapel & Reception Centre, 21 First St., Orangeville on Thursday, August 6, 2020 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
A Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel on Friday, August 7, 2020 at 11:00 a.m., followed by a Reception.
A Private Family Burial will take place on Saturday, August 8, 2020.

Dear Michael and Jackie,
So sorry for your loss. Even though I have never met Bessie in person, but it seemed like I do from Michael’s eulogy. What a wonderful strong lovely lady. It was a beautiful service. Sorry that I can’t attend in person. Praying for your family.

So sorry to hear of your mother's and grandmother's passing Michael, Jackie, Kate and Elizabeth. It is so fitting that you've asked for donations to a charity near and dear to her. I remember all the books in the house in Toronto. Thinking of you all in this difficult time, Gisele.
