Bertha "Birdie" Yuratich Bachemin passed away on October 15, 2020, after eight years of battling Pancreatic Cancer. Born September 18, 1945, to the late Esther Turlich Yuratich and Edward Yuratich. Birdie leaves behind one son David Patrick Bachemin, the love of my heart. Survived by two sisters Beverly Y. Bachemin, Myrna Y. Lefort and two deceased sisters Lois Y. Buuck and Edwina "Wina" Y. Mendoza. She also leaves behind her two Godchildren, nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, great-great nieces and nephews and many dear friends.

Birdie graduated from Academy of Holy Angels. To the class of 1963 Birdie would hope that someone would take over and continue the reunions as it meant so much to her. Birdie also worked for many years for Edwin Stacy with New York Life Insurance, Doug Reed with Custom Body Shop, and finally Clean Fleet Auto Shop first for Mark Heymann and then David Raymond (her office son). She will miss all the guys in the shop also the insurance adjusters. Birdie enjoyed baking and making pralines and rum cakes for the shop. Her lifetime had many ups and downs, but she also enjoyed going on cruises where she made many friends, trips to the casinos, and going to Lafayette to visit her cousin Jackie Lasiter and playing rummy. She was well loved and will be deeply missed by us all.

The family would like to thank Louisiana Hospice and Palliative Care for the excellent care they gave to Birdie. Special thanks and appreciation also to Adam, Dee and Cynthia.

“I want to thank my family for taking care of me and hope they will take care of my son David. He is spoiled, but he is my only one.”

Relatives and friends are invited to attend an evening visitation to be held at ST. BERNARD MEMORIAL FUNERAL HOME, 701 W. Virtue St., Chalmette, LA on Friday, October 23rd from 6:00PM – 9:00PM.

Birdie was a sweet delightful girl. We went to grammar school together and enjoyed the many times that our group of friends shared together. Sending my condolences and prayers.💚
