Bernita Rose Jones Scurich

Canfield woman had long career with Farmers National Bank

She was born on Sept. 25, 1928, in Ellsworth, Ohio, to Henry and Elsie Barnett Jones.

She married Frank Scurich on Aug. 9, 1958, and remained married until his death in 1995.

Bernita proudly graduated from Canfield High School in 1946 and was employed at Farmers National Bank in Canfield for 43 years until her retirement. She worked closely with Ethel Fowler during the early years, and continued to welcome many clientele to Farmers. She also served as a notary public and was a member of the Ellsworth Historical Society and the Ellsworth Grange.

Bernita’s talents and hobbies included undertaking crossword puzzles; entertaining, having hosted many July 4th festivities while a resident on South Broad Street in Canfield; cross-stitching, in particular the numerous Christmas ornaments that remain on display in the homes of relatives and acquaintances throughout the country; playing cards in the Canfield Friendship and Comeback Clubs with her dear, lifelong friends; and  most of all playing the piano, frequenting dance halls, churches, the Ellsworth VFW Fish Fry Dinners, and many living rooms, providing her favorite tunes and hymns.

She was a lifelong member and deacon of the Canfield Presbyterian Church, and never missed a Canfield Fair. 

Bernita leaves a daughter, Amy McSweeney and her husband Jim, Denton, Texas; and a son, Thomas Scurich and his wife Kelly Lemos; Boardman; four adored grandchildren, Brennan and George McSweeney; and Jenna and Jonathan Scurich, as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her sisters, Laura Jones who died in infancy; and Thelma Terry, Ellsworth.

Her laughter, quick-witted humor, and love of life will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved her.

The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the many friends and relatives who have looked after Bernita in recent years, the staff at Homecare with Heart, especially the wonderful care and kindness of Pat Grzebienowski and a special thank you to Dr. Charles Wilkins.
