November 14, 1924 – January 10, 2015
Bess Schachter passed away peacefully with her granddaughter Joey by her side at the Victoria Hospital January 10, 2015.
She was predeceased by her husband of over 60 years, Mitchell Schachter. Also predeceased by brothers-in-law Joseph Schachter, Sam Medoff, Morris Labovitch, Joseph Berz, Clifford Margolis and Israel Braunstein, and sisters-in- law Molly Medoff, Ann Braunstein, and Rita Bebchuk. Survived by sisters Marion Berz and Nellie Labovitch, and brothers Sam Bebchuk and Bill Bebchuk (Elaine). Also survived by brother-in-law Albert Schachter (June), and sister-in-law Sunny Schachter, her children Rivian (Brian) and Murray (Susan), her grandchildren Asher (Amanda), Joey (Gareth), Michael (Tammy) and Mark, and her greatgrandchildren Chaim, Leila, Joseph, Zachary, Samantha, Ella, Evan and Jordan, and many nieces and nephews.
Bess was indispensable as she worked side by side with her husband in their garment manufacturing business. Together, they were fortunate to have enjoyed a long and healthy working life and rich retirement before Mitchell’s passing in 2006.
Thanks go to Dr. MacDougall, and all the staff at Ambulatory Care at St. Boniface Hospital, and her care givers, Rose and Tessie.
