March 31, 1944- April 4, 2021
It is with great sadness that we say farewell to our mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunty, and friend.
Caroline Beverley Jane was the first-born daughter to Jim and Lena Antosh. From a young age she became known as “Bev”. She leaves her siblings, Wesley, Cheryl, Lorraine, Wendy (Shael), Marj (Brian), Bryan, Karen (Corey), Dennis (Denise) and Ernie- deceased, as well as many nieces and nephews. Dear Friend, Helen Wiebe.
The pride of her life was her children Jim (Lynn), Brian (Barb), Kim (Theo), Sean (Carly), and Zane (Christy); grandchildren Kyle, Stephanie, Nicole,(David) Sylvia, Raymond Westley, Robin, Alistair. Rowan, and Xander, and great-granddaughter Emma Joy
Bev struggled with Multiple Sclerosis for over half of her life. The last time she walked was when she walked down the aisle to marry her best friend Harold Guethert, who brought so much joy into her life. Shortly after their wedding, MS destroyed her muscles leaving her confined to a wheelchair and Hoyer lifts, leaving her totally dependent on others to help her. Life became increasingly difficult after Harold passed away. She lived her last 9 years at Fred Douglas Lodge, She loved getting out shopping when she could and loved to crochet blankets while watching her favorite Wrestling channel. Bev always kept in contact by phone with her children daily, but because of covid restrictions, visits were rare for the last year. This was terribly sad and lonely for Bev. Rest in peace Bev.
We love you and miss you, but we rejoice that you are now free to run, dance, and celebrate. Until we meet again.
Cremation will take place and a private celebration with the family will take place at a later date due to the Covid restrictions. In the meantime, Caroline’s family kindly requests that her friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour her memory by watching the photo-biography above. Please, also consider sharing your own photos and/or sharing your own memories and stories using the comment section on this page.
In lieu of flowers, contributions to the Multiple Sclerosis Society would be sincerely appreciated by the family.
