    DJ our heartfelt condolences to you during this difficult time. We never seem to be fully prepared to lose loved ones. Beth started out as an employee but turned into a dear friend who shared her love of opera and shoes during my time in Calgary. She was a great soul who will be deeply missed.

    Jeannette, Gil & Kaylynn Gingras

    You know I am with you in spirit, if not in the flesh. Beth’s passing leaves a giant chasm in so many lives. She was smart, kind, loyal, funny and generous. In all of that her memory will live on.

    My condolences are with you in this time. Aunt Beth was so wonderful to so many including us. After Uncle Don passed away, she continued to be such a vital part of the McIntyre family. I have many fond memories of her laugh, smile, and happy spirit. I saw her last at Uncle Ron’s wedding in upstate NY where she got to meet my first daughter. She is thought of and remembered today and always.
