MOUZAR – Beatrice Matilda, 94, Liverpool, formerly of Brooklyn, Queens County, NS
With much heartfelt sadness, we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved Mom, Nan and Great Nanny Bea…Beatrice Matilda (Hirtle) Mouzar in South Shore Regional Hospital, Bridgewater on Thursday, September 21, 2023.
Born in Liverpool, Bea was a daughter of the late Hector and Florence (Morreau) Hirtle and the youngest of four children.
Bea lived her early years in her hometown, working at the Mersey Store and the theatre as an usher. In 1949, she married Victor Mouzar, raised their two children in the wonderful village of Brooklyn where, together, they owned and operated Mouzar’s Store until its closure in 1988. Bea loved living in Brooklyn all her life and enjoyed all the people whom she had met over the years. She could relate to so much history of Brooklyn, she could have been the village historian!
Her patience, compassion and beautiful creativeness was admired by so many with her talents at knitting, sewing, cooking, artistic design, flower arrangements and her love of songs and music but, above all, her endearing ways to all her family, near and far and to those around her. Many can relate to her beautiful, personalized Christmas stocking and those delicious pineapple squares! Bea loved her travel years, whether it was to local or provincial curling events or to the West Coast to attend weddings, graduations or whatever might be happening at the time. Memories forever tied to her family’s hearts. We cannot forget her second love, the Blue Jays as well as the many curling bonspiels which helped to fill long hours.
Bea will be lovingly remembered and dearly missed by her daughter Susan (Brian), daughter in law Tinie (Giffy), grandchildren Darren, Michelle (Mike), Chad (Jennifer), Jill (Paul) and Jenna (Garret). Great grandchildren Ella, Kylee, Casey, Lucas, Lawson, Mia and Andie and Giffy’s girls Kaitlyn (Jeff) and Jenna (Zack) and baby Nyla along with her loving nieces, nephew and many cherished friends.
Besides her parents, Bea was predeceased by her husband Victor, her son Gary, her sisters Evelyn Ernst, Nita Foley and her brother Gordon.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool, NS.
