Bea, also known affectionately as Betty, was born in Regina, Saskatchewan on November 16, 1928.
Bea pulled her share of the yoke of life, she could see what needed to be done and did it. Whether at her church or lodge (her home), she loved the soil. Bea didn’t stir the pot, she dumped it, blended, enriched and filled it. The eternal garden is where you will find her toiling. You will hear her before you see her, for she will be singing and whistling.
If friends so desire, memorial tributes in Bea’s name may be made directly to the Clearview Lodge Resident Council, 4730 - 50 Avenue, Taber, Alberta T1G 1N6.
