  • So sorry to hear of Bea's passing. I really enjoyed working with her at Shoppers Optical for all those years, she was always enthusiastic and helpful in so many ways. The last time I saw her she talked to me about living life to the fullest and not wasting your life away, she told me of her many travels (safaris etc.), I'm so glad she was able to do all of the things that so many of us only every talk about doing. My deepest condolences to Don and family, may she rest in peace. - Posted by: Audrey Reimer (former co-worker) on: Oct 26, 2017

  • Bea you will be deeply missed. Your input and skills when you were on the board of Safari Club International, helped us to become what we are today. I am so glad you and Don got to go on a few safaris together, as you always came back with a great love for the wilds and the animals of the world, and I enjoyed hearing your stories when you guys returned. On behalf of the committee of SCI and all your extended SCI family, our deepest sympathies go out to Don and Bea's families and Bea rest in peace my friend, you are going on the greatest safari " journey in Swahili " God has for us, John Fidler - President Manitoba SCI - Posted by: John Fidler (friend) on: Oct 13, 2017

  • So sad she had to go so early in life. She will be greatly missed by many. One of the last times we saw each other she was lamenting about a time she had taken me to Polo Park and i was running around being a little kid and was calling her Mom loudly in front of all these people. She baby sat me often when i was little. She was the one that introduced me to The Burger Factory on Portage. Got me this huge burger. I remember thinking, there is no way I'll be able to finish this thing. I was probably around 5 at the time. I don't remember finishing it, but Auntey Bea says I got it all down. Later in life she vouched for me at her place of work and I got on working in the optical lab. She said it was not a glamorous job and to think nothing of it. She was right. It was a job and I was a lab rat churning out glasses. But I was grateful non the less for the little help, even though she didn't think anything of it. She was a positive person and I'm glad I had her in my life even though it was cut short. - Posted by: Dan Fredrick (Nephew) on: Oct 11, 2017

  • My sincere condolences to Don and to Bea's family. I had the pleasure of working with Bea and getting to know her at Shopper's Optical/King Optical Group. Bea and I shared a great love for our fur babies. We would sit at her desk and swap stories of their antics. And we stayed in touch through email and Facebook. I will miss her positive attitude and her amazing humour. Bea was a genuinely lovely soul! - Posted by: Deb Jones (Colleague and friend @ Shopper's Optical) on: Oct 11, 2017

So sorry you left here so soon. Rest easy old friend. Sorry so much time had passed us. - Posted by: Karen (Work friend) on: Oct 09, 2017

  • I remember when we first met. At work and how we got to talking. It came down to talking about your uncle John that worked at Paulin's and always brought a big bag of popcorn over. And how I then stated oh my uncle John worked at Paulin's and also brought big bags of popcorn to my grandparents (his brother) for us kids. Turned out we shared the same Uncle John Lewis. We joked around fighting as to who's uncle he really was. A friendship was born all those many years ago. Although we didn't see a lot of each other these last few years. We were always there for each other. You were an inspiration to many and always had a smile or hug for so many people. You, my dear, will be greatly missed. But knowing that you are no longer in pain, lessens the pain of losing you. You're with your mom for some very long crib games which you both enjoyed. I can hear you telling us "mom cheated at crib again" so hugs to you and your mom. Don you are in everyone's thoughts and prayers. Hugs. - Posted by: Kim Crosby (Friend) on: Oct 07, 2017

  • Oh Bea, We will miss you so much. Your spirit and attitude was a shining example of how to deal with your pain. The way you lived your life was incredible and you made me so proud to be known as "Bea's Brother". Rest easy little sister knowing that you made a difference in this world. - Posted by: Chris (Brother) on: Oct 07, 2017
