EVELYN MARY BEER 1922 - 2017 Peacefully, on Thursday, December 7, 2017 Evelyn Mary Beer passed away, at Oakview Place at the age of 95 years. Evelyn was predeceased by her late husband Arthur, son Braden, parents, Noel and Helen, and siblings, Allan Grice, Edna Dobson and Rooney Grice. Evelyn is survived by her son Walter (Linda), daughter Carole (John), loving nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Evelyn was born in Kelvington, Saskatchewan on May 1, 1922. She completed her high school education in Sherridan, Manitoba. After high school Evelyn then received her Accounting Education at Success Business College and Principles of Management at Red River Community College. Evelyn served with the C.W.A.C.

She officially retired in 1987. Evelyn enjoyed her summers at Grand Beach and Grand Marais spending it with her longtime friend Bob Sangster. The family would like to thank all the staff at Oakview Place on Ness Avenue where Evelyn lived the last years of her long, great life. She had excellent care at Oakview and I am sure she will be missed by all the staff with her singing and stories she told. Thank you, very much. Greatly appreciated.

  • So sorry to hear of Aunt Evelyn’s passing Walter and Linda. She sure lived to a great age,, sorry haven’t talked to her probably since my uncle Harold’s funeral, that was probably the last time I saw her in the late 90’s! That’s what happens when you move away and lose touch!! Take care and love you all!! Your cousin, Sandy and Joel - Posted by: Sandy Madden (Niece) on: Dec 13, 2017

  • Walter and Linda, We always enjoyed when Evelyn joined in family dinners in past years. She was such a gentle person and it was very easy to have a conversation with her. Thinking of you. Kerry and Lorie Welk - Posted by: Kerry and Lorie Welk (Family) on: Dec 12, 2017
