Feddersen, Beatrice Louise passed away peacefully on December 10th, 2012 at the age of 86. Bea was predeceased by her husband Bill and her sons Larry and Doug.
Bea was born to Charles and Pearl Flood in Owen Sound, ON on October 29th, 1926. She would argue the fact that her birth certificate was wrong and she was a year younger, but was quite happy to be a year older when she received her Old Age Pension. Bea met Bill before he was deployed overseas for WWII and as he was stationed there, he kept in touch with Bea. When he came back home to Saskatchewan, he sent for her, and on August 5th, 1946 they were married. Years later they ventured back to Ontario and raised their family in Kitchener, ON. Bea and Bill had 5 children, Larry, Doug, Eric, David, and Rhonda.
In 1975, Bea and Bill moved to Slocan, BC. It was there that Bea will be most remembered for the owner/operator of Busy Bea’s Laundromat.
Bea is survived by her children Eric (Kim), David (Dulcie), Rhonda (Randy) and sister Audrey. She also left behind 8 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren.
A Celebration of Life will be held in the spring of 2013.
As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made on Bea’s behalf to the Canadian Diabetes Association
