April 29, 1924 – January 8, 2013
We regret to inform you that our Mother, Bea Richardson, passed away peacefully in her sleep on January 8th at her winter home in Mesa, AZ at the wonderful age of eighty eight. Given the length of her life, we are reassured by the belief that there was a large contingent of family and friends who were there with our father, Bill, waiting for Mom as she passed away. Despite her enduring love and enthusiasm for life, there is no doubt that she has been quietly longing to be re-united with her husband, parents and many others who combined over the years to help her forge a remarkable life.
In her passing, she leaves behind her caring children Valory and Don, Marie and Don, Jo-Anne and Frank, Patti and Jim and Jack and Carol. She will be remembered with love and admiration by her numerous grandchildren many of whom had the luxury of spending their summers at the lake with their grandparents. Bea also has been blessed with a number of great-grandchildren who will miss their GG dearly.
We welcome you to attend Mom’s funeral service which will be held at the Red Deer Lake United Church, Spruce Meadows Trail SW, (1km west of 37 St W), Calgary, on January 30th, at 1:30pm.
There will also be a Celebration of Life to be held at Venture Out, 5001 E Main Street, Mesa, Arizona on February 16th in the Oasis room from 12:30 – 2:30pm.
In lieu of flowers please just take time from your own busy life to provide an act of kindness to someone you know who needs your help, so that the world that Mom has just left will become a little bit closer to the one where she now resides.
In living memory of Beatrice Richardson, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek Chapel, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: (403) 256-9575.Print This Obituary & Condolences
