CAROLINE BEVERLEY JANE
March 31, 1944 - April 4, 2021
Caroline Beverley Jane was the first-born daughter to Jim and Lena Antosh. From a young age she became known as "Bev". She leaves her siblings, Wesley, Cheryl, Lorraine, Wendy (Shael), Marj (Brian), Bryan, Karen (Corey), Dennis (Denise) and Ernie -deceased; as well as many nieces and nephews; and Dear Friend, Helen Wiebe.
The pride of her life was her children, Jim (Lynn), Brian (Barb), Kim (Theo), Sean (Carly), and Zane (Christy); grandchildren, Kyle, Stephanie, Nicole (David), Sylvia, Raymond Westley, Robin, Alistair, Rowan, and Xander; and great-granddaughter Emma Joy.
Bev struggled with Multiple Sclerosis for over half of her life. The last time she walked was when she walked down the aisle to marry her best friend Harold Guethert, who brought so much joy into her life. Shortly after their wedding, MS destroyed her muscles leaving her confined to a wheelchair and Hoyer lifts, leaving her totally dependent on others to help her. Life became increasingly difficult after Harold passed away. She lived her last nine years at Fred Douglas Lodge, she loved getting out shopping when she could and loved to crochet blankets while watching her favourite Wrestling channel. Bev always kept in contact by phone with her children daily, but because of covid restrictions, visits were rare for the last year. This was terribly sad and lonely for Bev.
Rest in peace Bev.
We love you and miss you, but we
rejoice that you are now free
to run, dance, and celebrate.
Until we meet again.
In the meantime, Caroline's family kindly requests that her friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour her memory by visiting her tribute page at EthicalDeathCare.com. A photo-biography, as well as memories and stories published by those who knew her, are available there.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to the Multiple Sclerosis Society are greatly appreciated by her family.
