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.


“Florence Cazakoff”, obituary, undated (1970) clipping, from unidentified newspaper; Demoskoff Family Papers, privately held by Yvonne (Belair) Demoskoff, Hope, British Columbia, 2018. Yvonne received an assortment of family memorabilia (including Florence’s obituary) from her father-in-law William (Bill) Demoskoff in 2012.
