Bessie Nault

1913 - 2013 GREAT BARRINGTON Bessie Horonzevicz Nault, 100, formerly of Great Barrington, died Saturday, Dec. 28, 2013, in Tennessee. She was born in Glendale on Nov. 15, 1913, to Stanislaus and Katarzyna (Szablak) Horonzevicz, who immigrated to the United States from Russian Poland. They moved to West Stockbridge and later Housatonic, where she attended local schools. Bessie was employed by Great Barrington Manufacturing in Great Barrington for 25 years. She spent 61 years with her beloved husband, Lionel (Ponzi), whom she married May 19, 1934, before he passed away in 1995. It's difficult to remember one without remembering them together. They loved to garden and went fishing as often as possible. When asked about the secret to their long marriage, they responded, almost in unison, "We help each other." Bessie leaves her son, Robert Nault and wife, Carol, of Knoxville, Tenn.; granddaughters, Suzanne Whalen and husband, Christian, of Williamsburg, Va., and Michele Jones and husband Michael, of Knoxville, Tenn.; great-grandsons, Matthew Jones and Caedmon Whalen; as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews. Memorial donations may be made to Caris Healthcare Services, 130 Mabry Hood Road, Ste. 108; Knoxville, TN 37922. Fond remembrances and photos can be shared with the family at Bestofbessie@gmail.com.
