Beth Giroux (nee Knight)

March 13, 2013

Surrounded by her loving family, Beth Giroux passed away peacefully in Kelowna on March 13, 2013. Born in Kennedy, Saskatchewan in 1932, Beth lived most of her life in Calgary before moving to Vernon in 2008.

Beth was predeceased by her husband Don in 2001, sister Edith Mann and brother Jack Knight. Surviving Beth are daughters Donna Hull (Carey) from Vernon, Lynné Christianson (Guy) from Sicamous, Cathy Cowan (Dan) from Penticton and son Barry from Calgary. She also leaves behind her grandchildren Lisa, Lindsey, Jody and Jamie and great-grandchildren Brandon, Carson, Hunter and Michaela. She is also survived by an extended family in Calgary and Saskatchewan. Beth resided at Canterbury Court in Vernon at the time of her passing and leaves many treasured friends there.

Beth’s pride and joy was her family but she also enjoyed many hobbies including golf, crochet and the occasional trip to the Casino. She also enjoyed some “girls’ weekend” adventures in Whitefish, Montana!

Don and Beth were long time members of the Forest Lawn Community Association. Don could lead his light-footed bride through every waltz, two-step, polka or jive at the monthly community dance. There is no doubt that Don has patiently waited with her dance card for the last 12 years!

The Giroux family were also passionate about their support for junior hockey providing residence for several young players at their home over the years. The coffee was always on at their home for all that needed friendship, guidance and support.

At Beth’s request, there will be no funeral service. A Celebration of Life will take place at Canterbury Court in Vernon on Saturday, March 23 at 2pm.
