1928 ~ 2013
Beatrice Lewis Kidd was born on December 2nd, 1928 in Toronto, Ontario celebrate the life of our dear mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Beatrice attended St. Clements Private Girls School while growing up in Toronto. She was a devoted wife who was married to Gordon Kidd, the “love of her life” for forty-nine memorable years. She cherished family times at Wasaga Beach in Ontario and enjoyed taking her children to the Canadian National Exhibition. After moving out west to Edmonton with her family, she worked for Grand & Toy as an Office Manager. She supported and encouraged her children and grandchildren in their many activities, clubs, sports, educational, and career endeavors. She was a passionate hockey fan who relished the opportunity to cheer on her team. Many of her most fulfilling moments were attending family celebrations and sharing precious time with her family in Kananaskis Country or as she often reiterated, “Gods Country”. She relished her travel adventures and experiences to Greece, England, Scotland, Alaska, Hawaii and the Caribbean. Bea had friendships that spanned the globe! She could simply “light up a room” with her smile, charisma, and bubbly personality. Her “love of life” embraced by her caring ways, humor, and compassion for others were her greatest gifts. She left a lasting legacy for family and friends to forever treasure.
Beatrices family would like to express their appreciation to her dear friends at Marthas House, the doctors and nurses at the Lethbridge Regional Hospital, and staff at St. Michaels Lethbridge PARP Center, for the special care and attention given to our mother.
