In her 91st year, Pearl Margaret Berze (nee Kovacs) has peacefully gone home to her Lord on Sunday January 31, 2021 with loving family by her side. Mom has now joined our dad and her much beloved husband David Joseph Berze married for 66 years until his passing in 2018 and her cherished parents Lazlo and Clara Kovacs (Nagy) and her dear brother Lloyd. She was a devoted and loving mother to Sharon Harden (David), Daniel Berze and Caroline Taylor (John). A proud and caring grandma who cherished time spent with her grandchildren: Andrew, Nicole, Nicholas, Alexander and Oliviah. A beloved sister-in-law with Helen Dremak (nee Berze) of Brantford and a special life long friend with Lizzy Engelhardt of Simcoe. Mom is predeceased by her sister-in-law Gabrielle Berze, brothers-in-law William Berze, and John Dremak, as well as best friends Margaret Nemeth and Mary Hines. She was so very fond of her many nieces and nephews and goddaughter Gloria Jean and family. Her nephew Ronald Kovacs, in particular, generously attended to her worldly affairs for many years.

Although mom was born and raised in Brantford she moved to Etobicoke where she raised her family and developed many cherished and lasting friendships. The Three Amigos Helen, Grace and Pearl, Bridge Card Sharks Extraordinaire are now rejoined within the bonds of their friendship.

Our family feels most grateful and appreciative towards the staff at Christenson Village Seniors Home in Gibson B.C. where she received the utmost in kind and caring support during her final years.

AÑADIR UN RECUERDO

The memory of that amazing laugh still makes me smile remembering the magic of growing up on Powburn Place. My life long love of cheese popcorn started when I would go to the nearby little plaza for my Mom to buy milk and bread. My Mom Grace would always have me stop by Berze’s house to see if they needed anything. It seemed every house was always short on milk in those days. Mrs Berze would take me up on the offer most times and always used to give me a dime to treat myself. This was in the days of penny candy! A dime was unbelievable and the exact cost of a bag of bright orange cheese popcorn . I was in heaven!
Grace and Helen will be so happy that you have come to join them and I’m sure have had the card table set up!
Sharon , Dan and Caroline you had an amazing mother. My condolences to you and your families

Powburn Place would not have been the same without the Berze's, and the Berze's would not have been the same without Powburn Place. From 'Kick the Can' and 'Hide and Seek', tent forts in Stewart's backyard and crawling on top of Berze's back patio......only to have Mr. Berze come out, "You kids' get down from there!" No one will forget when Mrs. Berze got her dishwasher......it was like a Pot of Gold landed down at 16 Powburn.
I agree with Jackie.......no kid went to sleep on Bridge night without hearing Mrs. Berze's laugh. She was always, always so thoughtful and considerate and with Auntie Helen threw me my lovely bridal shower. To Sharon, Dan and Caroline.....how lucky were you to have a mom so wonderful. Thinking of you all and wishing you all peace and love among great memories.

Oh that laugh! We would be lying in our beds while our moms played bridge, and we would wait to hear Mrs. Berze laugh. We were never disappointed. She had style and fancy purses we loved to play with while growing up. Mrs. Berze loved to shop and to buy nice things for other people that they would not buy for themselves. I have fond memories of tasting my first cabbage roll at her house. We visited Grandma Kovacs in Brantford and learned how to make Hungarian sausages. My dad always said, "make sure you bring lots home!" She had an abundance of kindness and generosity. You will be missed but your memory will live on in the many stories that we share with our children.
Say hi to Helen and Grace. xoxo

When remembering Pearl a smile comes immediately to my face. What a beautiful woman...a good friend and a confidant to many. I can't remember a time when her laugh didn't make me laugh too. Even when she was older, if you closed your eyes when Pearl was laughing you'd swear it was a teenager's laugh. How fabulous is that?! I hope to do the same. Pearl taught me a lot about being a good friend and a good mother. She will always hold a very special place in my heart.
Sending deep condolences and a very big virtual Hungarian hug to Sharon, Daniel and Caroline and families.
Gone but never forgotten.

Aunt Pearl was always caring and we always had fun at her home as children playing with our cousins. I enjoyed viewing the pictures that were posted as many I have seen before as my dad took some of the pictures and was in a few of them as well. She had a full life and even with her memory troubles she was happy and considerate. We will miss her and her generation that have passed and remember them all fondly.

Aunt Pearl always took the time to talk, share a positive comment and a timely laugh. Many fond memories of family gatherings in Toronto, Brantford, Owen Sound and cottages as kids. Mom (Helen) thought of Pearl as a sister, and enjoyed their times together always !
We will miss her terribly, and wish to pass our family condolences on to our cousins, their families & friends.

I remember Aunt Pearl as a woman of tremendous hospitality and an excellent cook. I remember dropping in to her home in Owen Sound on very short notice but she seemed thrilled beyond imagining that my husband and I had come and treated us like royalty. She was a real treasure.
