Beatrice Annie Cousineau passed from us and her family at Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital in Clearwater, B.C. on Jan. 26, 2005, at the age of 70.
Beatrice was born in Edmonton Alberta on Sept. 17, 1934. She lived in Edmonton until her marriage to Raymond in 1971.
After a brave struggle with breast cancer she passed away with her husband and hospital staff at her side.
Beatrice was predeceased by her parents Frank and Violet Southern (Brett) and is remembered by sisters June McCray (Wally), Peggy Foster; brother, Robert; son, Philip; grandson, Clifford and many nieces and nephews.
Beatrice enjoyed home making and caring for her beloved cats.
Should friends desire, donations to the Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital would be appreciated.
Yes dear one, it is our hope to meet
Sometime, somewhere in some great after-life.
Where senseless fate’s cruel lash shall no longer beat
Upon our flesh, and gone this world of strife!
You were all to me, Love
For which my soul does pine —
A green isle in the sea, love,
A fountain and a shrine
All wreathed with fairy fruits and flowers,
And all the flowers were mine.
