Written by ECA Review

Feb. 9, 1942 – Aug. 18, 2022

It is with sadness that we share the news Beth passed away peacefully from a stroke at the U of A Hospital ER with her twin sister at her side.

She will be loved and remembered by her son Darrin (Margie) Peverell and his daughter Jenna; daughter Sandra (Johann) Freerksen, and their children Steven Freerksen, Jacob (Ripley) Freerksen and their daughter Jayda Josephine, Joe Freerksen, Maisie (Clayton) Klatt, and Austin Freerksen; twin sister Betty Mackey and sister-in-law Jean Peverell, as well as eight nieces and two nephews and their families.

Beth was pre-deceased by her beloved husband of 62 years Brian, in January of 2022; her parents John and Christina Milligan, and two sisters, Carol and Judy.

Beth grew up in Cochrane, Alta. and married her childhood sweetheart Brian in 1959. They lived in Cochrane for the first 13 years together, enjoying life with their two young children and surrounded by extended family and friends.

In 1972 the family moved to Castor where Beth worked alongside Brian in the Paintearth Creamery for the next 30 years.

After retiring in 2001, Beth enjoyed fishing for rainbow trout, and camping with Brian in the lakes and rivers of southeastern Alberta.

She loved to bake and there wasn’t a birthday or special event in the family without her wonderful cakes, pies and cookies.

She enjoyed playing crib and other card games with Brian over the years of their retirement.

Beth was delighted to welcome her first great-grandchild, Jayda Josephine in March this year.

After moving to Paintearth Lodge in Castor in December 2021, Beth loved to participate in the many social activities that were offered. She was very happy there surrounded by many friends and acquaintances.

The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at the Lodge for their care and compassion during her time there.

They also appreciated the dedication and care Beth received from Dr. Hanton and the staff at the Castor Hospital over the past years.

A Family and Friends Celebration of Life will be held for Beth and Brian Peverell in September.
