Bernice Ann Tassano

(1945 – 2020)

On October 30, 2020 I left my loved ones to find a peaceful, pain free place.  I shall remember them and hopefully they will remember me.  My deepest love goes out to them.  I was predeceased by my parents Doris and Leslie Mazur, brothers Walter and Raymond and twin sister Pauline, granddaughter Melissa (my precious angel). I am survived by my husband Michael, son Greg (Lori), daughter Loni , son Jason, grandchildren Meghan, Jesse and Travis and great grandchildren Kaiden and Koltyn and son-in-law Butch.  Also surviving are brother in law Peter (Philippa) and Simon (Annaliese).  My wish is to be cremated and there be a private service.


My beautiful Mom,

Even though we weren’t as close as you wished we were, please know that I have always loved you and will continue to do so.  I am grateful that you and Jesse were close and he will miss your lunch dates and phone conversations.  Jesse and I will miss you deeply.  Love always and forever.  Loni and Jesse.

The family wish to send a sincere thank you to Dr. Brian Lindenschmidt, to the wonderful staff on Medical Ward 2 at Selkirk Regional Health Centre, to Roland Fontaine and to Rick Kotaska.  Your professionalism and dedication made a huge difference during this difficult time.

    My heartfelt condolences to Michael, your children and grandchildren.

    Bernice, my beautiful friend who not only I but my entire family will dearly miss. Your thoughtfulness, kindness and generosity for others was one of your greatest traits. You will never be forgotten. The many book exchanges, bingo chats and baking you shared are some of the memories I will cherish.

    Your pain is now gone, smile brightly and may you rest in peace. Hugs my friend.
    Peggy Clarke and Family

    Our deepest sympathy to you at this time. Will definitely miss seeing Bernice at Bingo and having our chats. She was a great person and was very so nice to the girls when they worked and was special friend to Priya.
