Departure, especially departure using this life; demise.
Departure from life; demise.
Synonyms Death, Decease, Demise. Death could be the typical term the ending of life. Decease is somewhat euphemistic; it is less forcible and harsh than demise. Demise applies primarily to a sovereign, which at death sends down or transmits his title, etc. (see quotation from Blackstone, under demise), and hence to other individuals with reference to the transmission of these possessions. The utilization of demise for death aside from this concept is figurative, euphemistic, or stilted.
