Sunday’s Obituary: Florence Cazakoff

Obituary of Florence Cazakoff

Florence was the first wife of Lawrence (Larry) Cazakoff, my husband’s maternal uncle.

A younger daughter of Stephen and Elizabeth (Strelaeff) Perepelkin (var. Perepolkin), Florence was born on 25 July 1914 in Veregin [sic], Saskatchewan. She married John Remesoff by whom she had four children. He passed away in 1945.

Florence married Larry in 1968, but they did not have children. It was a brief union, because Florence died on 11 April 1970 in Kamsack, Saskatchewan after “a short illness”. She was interred three days later in Riverview Cemetery in Kamsack.

My late father-in-law Bill, who collected obituaries of family, friends, and acquaintances, added the year 1970 in pen at the top of the (yellowed) obituary clipping.
