Obituary of Beatrice Slaunwhite

SLAUNWHITE (Keating), Beatrice Marie - 62, Terence Bay, passed away January 3, 2008, after a courageous battle with cancer. Born in Halifax, she was a daughter of the late Clarence and Lucy (Poole) Keating. She was a member of St. Paul's Anglican Church, Terence Bay. She loved to host the family gatherings and do all the cooking and baking for all who came. She especially loved spending time with her grandchildren, which had been her motivator during the last four years while fighting this battle. She and her soul mate, husband, "Hubby", enjoyed almost 46 years of making memories together including baseball, boating, traveling and escaping together to their cottage in Stewiacke. She enjoyed her weekly bingo outings with her bingo buddies. She loved gardening and sharing her flowers. She worked at John's Eatery General Store, White's Lake, for many years, where it was more of a social calling than work for her. She is survived by her husband, Hubert, who lost his best friend; children, Timothy, Tina (Paul Martell), Terry (Shelly Forbes), Tyson (Satrina); grandchildren, Megan, Sarah, Kyle and Erin, all of Terence Bay; brothers, Junior (Lucy), Bill (Vera Chapman); sisters, Linda (John Boutillier), Shirley (Wade Tarbox), Phyllis (Teddy Borden); many nieces, nephews and cherished friends. Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her sister, Barbara; brother, Thomas; nieces, Debbie Cook, Valarie Keating; nephews, Dougie Keating and Derrick Slaunwhite. Funeral arrangements are under the care and direction of J. Albert Walker Funeral Home (2005) Ltd., 149 Herring Cove Rd., Spryfield (477-5601), with visitation from 6-9 p.m. Sunday. A memorial service will be held 10 a.m. Monday, January 7, in St. Paul's Anglican Church, Terence Bay, Rev. Lisa Vaughn officiating. Interment will be held at a later date. Family flowers only. Donations in Beatrice's memory may be made to St. Paul's Anglican Church, Terence Bay, or to Canadian Cancer Society.
