Mar 2, 2018
It is with great sadness that the family of Janina (Jenny) Antonina Beeton announce her passing on Friday, March 2, 2018 at the age of 83.
Jenny was a talented pianist who lit up the room when she played. To hear her, you’d think it was her greatest passion, but it wasn’t. Family holds that spot. Her children being so close to each other through life was such a point of pride and gave her great happiness. ‘Just promise me that when I’m dead and gone, you kids stay close.’
Jenny happily wore many hats over her lifetime; bank cashier, drug store clerk, automotive counter clerk, piano teacher, service member, but the happiest roles were sister, auntie, friend and most importantly loving wife and mother. Jenny loved to have fun and appreciated every opportunity whether over a card game with friends, a dinner out, or putting on a big spread herself. She cooked a mean pot roast and she loved to bake.
We celebrate the grand reunion she must be having right now with her beloved Berkley who passed in October 2005 and whom she missed terribly.
Jenny is lovingly survived by son Ralph (Dianne), daughter Jackie (Dave), son Roger (Leah), six grandchildren Ward (Amanda) , Ryan (Cheryl), Andrea (Lindsay), Mark (Megan), Chelsea (Kristian) & Kaitlynn (Greg), six great-grandchildren (Braedon, Jordyn, Jesalyn, Taylor, Gemma & baby Berkley), sister Anne (Chuck) and niece Nancy (Keith).
Jenny touched the lives of many and leaves behind a large group of family and friends who mourn her passing. Memorial services will be held Saturday, March 17, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at the Knox United Church, Three Hills, AB. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.sunsetltd.ca
