GEORGETTE BEWZA
1925-2013

Our much-loved mother, nana and gran-nana Georgette Bewza passed away peacefully after a short illness at Jackson House, Ashcroft, BC on December 1, 2013. Predeceased by her husband Stanley, and brothers Armand, Rene and Joe Belanger, Georgette will be sadly missed by son Raymond Bewza of Ashcroft, daughters Helen Bewza of Kamloops and Barbara Hassall (Dale) of Campbell River. She was devoted to her grandchildren Aaron, Michael (Karen), Jill, Suzanne (Shane), Ian (Krysta), Cameron (Aisling), Leah (Dave), Sarah and Michael, and took great delight in great grandchildren Enger, Kaleb, Preston, Priscilla, Alyse, Chelsea and Dawson. Also mourning Georgette are her remaining seven brothers and sisters and many, many nieces and nephews. Her absence will be keenly felt by her dear friend William Munro and his children and grandchildren who treasured their "Auntie Georgette".
Georgette was an honorable and gracious lady, admired for her generosity and "can do" attitude. She was a pioneer and an artist combined, talented bread and pie baker, tomato juice and perogy maker, seamstress, woodworker, quilter and gardener. One had to get up very early for a project with Nana, or the fruit would be picked, jars sterilized and jam already cooking. She regularly and effortlessly produced family dinners for twenty-five from her garden, larder and freezer.
The family wishes to express their gratitude to Dr. Kitshoff and the caring staff at Jackson House for their kindness and compassion throughout Georgette's two and a half years of residence there.
A celebration of Georgette's life will be held on Saturday, December 7, 2013 at 10:00 am at the Ashcroft River Inn.
Should friends desire, donations in Georgette's memory may be made to Jackson House or a charity of your choice.
