Obituary for Grace Elise Apsit (Bond)

In Loving Memory of Grace Apsit

(1945 - 2020)

Grace Elise Apsit was born in Quincy, Massachusetts on May 26, 1945 and passed away on July 4, 2020 at the age of 75 years. She was the daughter of Dorothy and Charles Bond. She was very happily married to Bill Apsit, who passed away on September 10, 2016. They moved to Toronto in the mid 1960s. They later relocated to Guelph in the mid 1980s where they were relieved to live in a smaller, quieter city (although Grace commuted to Toronto for work for a couple of years). They enjoyed traveling together throughout the U.S. and Europe.

Grace loved her son, Jarry, and her daughter, Erin. She had a very productive, albeit stressful, career in various challenging administrative roles. She was tremendously fond of animals, and not just to eat them. She loved cats, dogs, pigs, birds and donkeys at The Donkey Sanctuary just south of Guelph. Her cherished cat, Amadeus, lives very happily with her ,daughter. She will be dearly missed by family and friends.

Bill's sisters were Grace's sisters-in-law. We loved Grace as a friend first, then special sister-in-law. With sincere sympathy.

I knew Grace from the 1980s when we worked together at a fun and crazy telemarketing division of a major publishing company. It was an important time in all of our lives, and many of my long-time friends are from that time, including Grace. After losing touch for some years, we re-connected about 15 years ago, and always shared birthday and Christmas cards and letters each year. I lost touch again with Grace after Bill died, and was shocked and saddened to learn of her recent death. Grace had a spark, a wit, a sense of humour, a flair, and an inner light that seemed timeless. Grace’s special energy will be sorely missed in the lives of all of us who knew and loved her.

We are so very sorry to hear that Grace passed. Yet we know that life had become very difficult. Our hearts wanted so much to have been able to visit. We so much appreciate all of you dear family and friends who could be there with Grace. This virus has robbed so many of so much. We hate that visits became impossible.

Grace welcomed me into the crazy Wexler family with open arms! We loved Aunt Dot so much too! Back in the 80's we took a long road trip from Minnesota to Boston and stopped in Toronto. Jarry and Erin, you were about 7&8 years old. Recently our three children have heard us lamenting that Grace was not doing well and we could not go to be with her. The two older ones reminisced about all your lego stash!!! You generously shared them! Lasting impressions made for sure!

Once we retired, and Grace and Bill did too, we made some nice visits back and forth. And along with Roberta, the Wexler cousins got together almost yearly when Roberta was in Cleveland. So many good memories. Tons and tons of laughs. Grace's wit was legendary! Quick. She and Dick could spar like pros. Grace would do a lovingly delivered put down for Dick and throw me a compliment every time. I loved Grace for that :) and I loved to hear Dick and Grace talk about all the pranks they played on each other while growing up in Beach Haven in the summer time.

Roberta would send her own greetings but she is unable to communicate with us even by phone. She is in a care facility in Florida. We know she would send her deep love to your family. She was much of the glue that kept the Wexler cousins in closer touch. Grace, and Bill, were favorites of hers. She often asked us of news in these later years and we kept her informed.

Our love and prayers are strong toward all you dear ones grieving along side us. We share your heart ache. Her struggles are over. Shalom.
Darla and Dick
