Amelia GAZSO

GAZSO Amelia (Emily) Elizabeth. Amelia (Emily) Elizabeth Gazso (nee Doka), age 87, of the Cottage Pavillion, Abbotsford, BC, peacefully passed away on January 21, 2012. Emily was the youngest of the family, and enjoyed her farm life with her father, mother, brothers and sisters in Saskatchewan. In 1945 she moved to BC and married Louis Gazso. They started life together on a small farm in Surrey. 1952 saw a move to a larger farm in Bradner where they were able to expand their herd of cattle and pigs, grow raspberries and raise their four sons. When it was time to retire, they sold and moved to a smaller farm on Columbia Road in Abbotsford. Their final move was to their city home on Vinewood Street. Emily, never one to be idle, embarked on a new career with the Menno home where she remained employed until her retirement. After Louis’ death in 1997 she remained in their home, was an avid gardener and enjoyed time with friends and family. Emily was gifted at crocheting, knitting, baking and gardening. There never was a task unchallenged. At Christmas the family looked forward to the many Hungarian culinary treats, especially her Dobos Torte. Emily was predeceased by father and mother, Daniel and Esther Doka; brothers, Dan, John and Joe; sisters, Mary and Julia; and husband, Louis Gazso. Survived by sons, David (Barbara) of Bradner, Ben (Gail) of Abbotsford, Les (Shauna) of Chilliwack and Alex also of Abbotsford; grandchildren, Lee (Christine), Amber (Michael), Alan Blacklock, Hanna and Matthew; great grandchildren, Sydney, Courtney and Macartney. She will be missed. Heartfelt thanks to the staff of the Cottage Pavilion for the care of our mother over the past year. A Service of Remembrance will be held on Friday, January 27, 2012 at 11:30 am at Calvin Presbyterian Church, 2597 Bourquin Crescent, Abbotsford, BC. No flowers by request.
