Memories of Bessie Drakulich
Bessie Drakulich 1924 ~ 2010 Our beloved aunt, great aunt, and friend, Bessie Drakulich, passed away at home December 31, 2010, surrounded by her family. Bessie was born March 22, 1924, to Joseph and Mary Drakulich in Garfield Camp, Utah. She would go on to graduate from Granite High School, and lived and worked in the Salt Lake Valley her entire life. A natural leader, Bessie earned the respect and admiration of the many people who worked for her over the years at Auerbach's, Alta Distributing, and Castleton's. Bessie was also an outstanding cook, and took great delight in hosting large family dinners for many years. A devout, lifelong Orthodox Christian, Bessie was a member of the Prophet Elias Greek Orthodox Church. Bessie was preceded in death by her beloved sister and best friend, Mary, earlier this year. She was also preceded in death by her parents, sisters Millie Sasich (Ely), Dollie Smith (Larry), Sava Varechok (George), and brothers Eli Drakulich (Maurine), and Nick Drakulich (Persida). Bessie will be especially missed by her many nieces and nephews and their families, all of whom she loved. A private funeral ceremony for Bessie's family will be held at Prophet Elias Greek Orthodox Church, with interment to follow at Mt. Olivet Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Prophet Elias Greek Orthodox Church.
