REGINALD FRANK BEEBY
1940 – 2008
With great sadness, we announce the passing of Frank at Hospice
House, Vernon, on Monday, June 30th, 2008, aged 67, after a short
battle with cancer.
Born in Cambridge, England, Frank immigrated to Canada in 1974,
with wife Norma and children, Elizabeth, Dominic and Rachel. He
became a proud Canadian citizen in 1981. Frank worked in the steel
industry in Kitchener, Ontario, Fort McMurray, Alberta and Westbank,
BC, and since 1982 has been a resident of Vernon, Coldstream and
Desert Cove Estates.
Frank will be sorely and forever missed by Norma, his wife and best
friend for 39 years; daughter Elizabeth (Bob), Camrose, Alberta; son
Dominic (Olivia), Port Moody, BC; daughter Rachel, Vernon; and by
son-in-law Gary Oberle. He also leaves his cherished grandchildren
who will greatly miss their “Gumpy” – Dylan and Aleigha, Charlotte,
baby William Reginald, and Chui. Also surviving are parents-in-law,
Cyril and Ellen Denton of Lincoln, England, as well as his faithful
Private family funeral service and interment will be held graveside at
Coldstream Cemetery. Family fl owers only. In lieu of fl owers, donations
may be made in Frank’s name to Vernon Hospice House or to
the SPCA Vernon Branch.
All friends and family are invited to a memorial tea in Frank’s memory
at Pleasant Valley Funeral Home Tea Room on Saturday, July 5th at
“Just when your life was brightest,
Just when your years were best,
You were called from this world of sorrow,
To a home of eternal rest.
Rest in peace, my love”
Arrangements are in the care of
Vernon Funeral Home
