Seta Kazazian Demurjian, passed away Monday afternoon, February 24, 2020, in her sleep. She lived until she was six weeks shy of 88. Seta was a vivacious, feisty woman for the first 86 of those years, but declined precipitously - both physically and mentally - over the past two years. She passed peacefully while napping on her couch, in her home, which is how she wanted to go.
Seta lived life on her own terms, often without a filter. She inspired many with her independence, her generosity, and her zest for life. She was fluent in four languages, teaching Italian almost until the day she died and conducting foreign language tours (in Italian, French, and Spanish) of Philadelphia and even DC well into her Eighties. Seta was also a true patron of the Arts, as an active subscriber to the Philadelphia Orchestra and Metropolitan Opera, among others, up until this last year or two.
She will be sorely missed, especially by Malcolm, her husband of 64 years, her son Stuart, her son Warren and his wife Amy, her grandchildren Aubrey and Teddy, and her sister Myri Norcen and her husband Mario. She is also survived by her loving niece LindaCarol and her loving nephews Harry, Luca, Claudio, Richard, David, and Michael.
She lived a great life. It was simply her time.
Seta’s life will be celebrated in services to be announced once they are finalized. In lieu of flowers, donations in her name will be gratefully received by the Philadelphia Orchestra or Natural Lands Trust

My mere words cannot do justice to this wonderful woman. She inspired me, taught me and humbled me. My heart aches for Malcolm, Warren and the rest of the family (whom I have met). Hers was a life WELL LIVED and WELL ADMIRED.
God bless you, Seta. Love, Mark Beyerle

Seta and Malcolm have been across-the-street neighbors of ours for 22 years in Cherry Hill. Early on I learned that Seta and I shared the same birthday, though not the same year. Many times I would wake on my/our birthday to find a card or a gift on my porch. Seta always beat me to the punch before I could send her. It would be one of our bonds, along with our love of animals and Philadelphia. Seta was a true Aries with her boundless energy,"feistiness" as her obituary described.
Seta's father was a furrier, she told me, but she had grown to frown upon real fur. Although I am an avid animal lover, I am conflicted on fur vs. faux. But I only once wore real fur in front of Seta before she reminded me not so gently that there were wonderful faux furs available as an alternative (and I never again wore it in front of her.)
Seta was the woman that any modern woman would aspire to. She was extremely worldly, cultured, educated, vivacious, stylish and devoted to Malcolm and her family while living an extremely full life doing the things she loved.
I will miss my birthday buddy, and I can only hope in my lifetime to be half the woman she was...
Au revoir, mon ami.
