BEDDOE – Carter Edward

August 1, 2012

Our beautiful Chelsea and her perfect new baby boy Carter passed away suddenly in Vernon, B.C. on August 1, 2012 at the age of 28. Chelsea was born and raised in Calgary. She attended the U of A and earned a B.Sc & B.Ed with honors and eagerly returned to Calgary to begin her career at John G. Diefenbaker High School teaching chemistry and sciences. Beyond the classroom, Chelsea coached both senior and junior girl’s field hockey team earning a City Championship title. Chelsea loved to water-ski, snow-ski, dance, travel and go to the beach. But most of all Chelsea loved to teach, in life and school. Chelsea married the love of her life Tristan Beddoe in Vernon, B.C. on August 7, 2010. Chelsea and Tristan had recently moved to Vernon to begin a new chapter and start their family. Although our Carter was only with us for a short time he felt the immense love of his family. They will both be dearly missed.

Chelsea and Carter will be lovingly remembered by their loving and brave husband and father Tristan Beddoe.

They will also be survived by Tristan’s parents: Jane and Stephen Beddoe (Carter’s Grandparents); Chelsea’s parents: Don Friesen and Brenda Scott (Carter’s Grandparents); Tristan’s Brothers: Owen Beddoe (Jilaine), Charles Beddoe (Kelly); Chelsea’s Brothers: Christopher and his wife Christi Friesen and their son Bennett, Scott Friesen; as well as Carter’s Great Grandparents: Great Grandma Jean Scott, Great Grandma Margaret Venables, Great Grandma Marie Friesen.

Chelsea and Carter are forever loved and will also be missed by their large extended family.
