William (Bill) Valentine Bezanson
January 8, 1925 January 31, 2012

It is with great sadness that the family of Bill Bezanson announces that he passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 31st, 2012. Bill is predeceased by his parents, Ronald and Betty; sisters, Rose and Margaret; and daughter-in law, Cindy.

He is survived by his wife, Anne; children, Brenda (Norm) Picard of Calgary, Ron (Annette) of Calgary, and Maureen; grandchildren Aaron and Lindsey; brothers and sisters, Teresa Lovell, Moreen (Dean) Westgate, Betty St. Denis; as well as many nieces and nephews.

Bill was born in 1925, and raised in Frenchman Butte, Saskatchewan. Bill had a very strong work ethic, and began his teaching career at an early age; literally starting at Rock Bottom School in Saskatchewan. His teaching career spanned 42 years 10 years in one room school houses and 32 years at the R.J.D. Williams School for the Deaf in Saskatoon. Bill met Anne at the School for the Deaf and they married in 1953. He took a second job cleaning the TD Bank to support Mom's shopping passion. Bill was an avid bowler, enjoyed the lake and fishing and loved gardening. There are many fond memories of family road trips. He thoroughly enjoyed a full evening of card playing. Bill was witty and quick with jokes and enjoyed the company of many. He was respected and loved by all who knew him. Bill gracefully accepted his condition caused by childhood polio and `soldiered' on through life no matter what he faced.

A special thank you to the nurses and staff at RUH. A Celebration of Bill's Life will be held on Monday, February 6th at 3:30 p.m. at Hillcrest Funeral Home.1

     Obituary from The Saskatoon StarPhoenix (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan), 28 February 2013:
BEZANSON, ANNE
March 6, 1927 – February 26, 2013

It is with great sadness that the family of Anne Bezanson announces her passing at her home Tuesday, February 26, 2013. Anne is predeceased by her husband Bill; parents Margaret and Joseph Kulbida, sister Frances (Joe); niece Faye; cousin Tina; and her daughter-in-law Cindy.

She is survived by her children Brenda (Norm) Picard of Calgary, Ron (Annette), grandchildren Aaron and Lindsey of Calgary; and daughter Maureen; as well as many nieces, nephews, in-laws and close friends.

Anne was born in 1927 and grew up in Saskatoon. Her parents had immigrated from the Ukraine and Anne continued family traditions by cooking up many delicious perogies, cabbage rolls and borscht. Anne had a strong work ethic and served the Saskatchewan Government as a secretary for many years. She met her Bill at the School for the Deaf and married in 1953. Together they worked as a team to make a comfortable home and raise their children in a loving, caring and giving environment. Anne was an avid shopper and was a loyal customer of the Bay and Sears for over 60 years. She was devastated when Eaton's closed their doors. Her shopping pleasures extended to Las Vegas on their winter stays and Moose Jaw special weekends. Her passions were having a clean home and wonderful meals. Her joy of cleaning and doing laundry became her trademark. Her plants felt her loving nature and bloomed continually. She loved card parties and bowled in a league for many years. She had a great sense of humor and a ready laugh. We will always hear her soft giggle and distinct laugh in our minds. We are so blessed to have had her in our lives and will always love and miss her.

We are thankful to our long time friend Jeanine who had many adventures with Anne the last few months. A special thanks to Brightwater Senior Living for keeping Anne safe and happy for the last 3 weeks of her life. A Celebration of Anne's life will be held on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at Hillcrest Funeral Home.1
