Mme Jessie Szpak
1926 - 2019
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jessie Szpak-Burford on January 27, 2019. She is survived by her son, Stephen Burford (Ingrid Kostner), daughter, Janice Morello, (John Morello), her grandchildren, Jesse Burford, Madison Burford, Anne-Marie Morency and Diana Morency, as well as her great grandchildren Amelie and Mia. She is predeceased by her first husband Eldridge Waldo Burford (1919–1964) and her 2nd husband, Alexander Nemyrewski (1926-2009).
She will be remembered for the care and concern she offered to her loved ones and friends, her sense of humour, which never left her, and especially the love she shared. While her last years were difficult, she persevered with grace and poise.
Jessie immigrated to Canada from Ukraine, with her parents in 1929, when she was 3 years old. Throughout her life she remained involved in the close knit Ukrainian Community and exposed her children to the language, history and traditions of the Ukraine.
She will be greatly missed.
In her memory, donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Foundation.
Family and friends will gather for a ceremony at the interment at the Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery at 2pm on May 21st 2019.
