June 11, 1944 – July 25, 2015
Passed away suddenly in Grand Forks, British Columbia, Angela Furey-Demas formerly of Avondale, Conception Bay, Newfoundland. Angela’s brilliant and creative mind earned her highest academic scholarships to pursue teacher education at St. Bride’s College and Memorial University of NL. Angela’s teaching career spanned 37 years throughout Newfoundland, Ontario and Alberta. Although she began her teaching career as a junior high teacher, Angela devoted most of her passion for teaching early childhood and primary children. Angela retired in September 2001 to spend more time with her family and in 2008 she and her husband Kevin Demas moved to Grand Forks, B.C. to enjoy the climate, golfing, and gardening.
Angela is predeceased by her father Arthur Furey, infant siblings Mary and William, sister-in-law Jenny Furey and first husband Frank Morgan. She is survived by her husband and soul mate, Kevin Demas, mother (Anastasia Furey), daughter (Michele Nichols), siblings Beth, Edith, Mary (Brian), Art (Karen), Gerard (Pat), Harold (Agnes), Pad (Sharon), and Nick (Bernadette), her special grand children (Anastasia Nichols, Zachary Patterson, Paige Lawson-Demas and Bailey, Montana, Nathaniel and Nick Demas) as well as a large circle of nieces, cousins and friends. Viewing was held in the Chapel of Grand Forks Funeral Home on Tuesday, July 28 at 2:00 p.m., Grand Forks, B.C.
A funeral mass will take place at Assumption church, Avondale, Newfoundland in September. Flowers gratefully accepted or donations in Angela’s memory may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or Alzheimer’s Society. Angela was a kind wonderful person who truly loved life. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts, thoughts, prayers and memories.
