Brasch, Delores Marie (nee Merz)
Peacefully, with family by her side, on January 23rd, 2019, in her 89th year. Beloved wife of Jim for more than 66 years, cherished mother of Jennifer (Kirt Cushnie) and Katherine (Jim Silburn), loving grandmother of Jimmy, Beth, Sarah, Andrew and Rachel. Mom earned her teaching degree at Buffalo State in 1952 and her Master’s Degree in Library Science at the University of Wisconsin in 1958. She taught middle school and worked as a librarian before taking “early retirement” in 1965 when she became a mother. A resident of Burlington since 1966, mom was active in the Canadian Federation of University Women Burlington, the Halton Quilter’s Association and served as the librarian and publicist for the Orchid Society of the Royal Botanical Gardens for many years. She loved playing her grand piano and passed her love of music to her children and grandchildren. She was one of the first Suzuki violin parents in Burlington, a Burlington Teen Tour Band Booster, and a supporter of the Hamilton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra, in addition to attending countless classical music concerts in the area. Mom was wonderfully creative, sewing beautiful dresses and clever stuffed animals for her children before becoming a skilled quilter. She prepared an endless stream of delicious home-cooked meals, often cooking favourites from her German heritage. Mom and dad traveled to 6 continents during the course of their many adventures exploring the art, history, architecture and orchids of different countries. Mom loved opera, fine chocolate and wine, good books, beautiful fabrics, finding a bargain, making music together and sharing meals in her kitchen overlooking the escarpment. Visitors will be received at Bay Gardens Funeral Home, Burlington (1010 Botanical Drive) on Saturday, February 2nd, 3-4pm with chapel service and reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the McMaster Children’s Hospital or a charity of your choice. Online condolences may be made at www.baygardens.ca.
