It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, Bev Strand, on Thursday June 13, 2019, at the age of 70.
Bev was predeceased by her loving husband, Willy Strand in 2001; her parents, Frances (Lenius) and Gregory Eberle; twin sisters in infancy; mother-in-law and step-father-in-law, Eva (Luchinski) and Ken Wishart; seven brothers-in-law and three sisters-in-law.
She leaves to mourn: her daughters and sons-in-law; eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren: Shelly (Kevin) Large, Bryan, Danielle (Kyle); Dana (Steven) Penner, Stephanie (Chad) Dirkson, Dustin (Becky) Munroe, Natasha Penner (Mitch), Brody Penner; Cathy Sait, Riley Bear, Kelsey Bear (Chris), Milah, Hayden, Emmerson Dirkson, Shane, Alex, Arianna Munroe, Bridgette Penner-Hitchens, Avery Gillis.
She is also survived by her brother, Raymond (Linda) Eberle; and sister, Gloria Malcom; sisters-in law and brothers-in law, Johnny and Janet Strand, Jim and Paulette Strand, Sharon Strand, Linda West and Mike Bolger; numerous nieces, nephews and cousins, and many friends that were close to her heart.
Bev had a huge heart and lived by the words “pay it forward”. She had a quirky sense of humor and had many silly stories too share, (mostly about dad whom she missed dearly). Her biggest passion in life was her family and those considered family who were guaranteed a call or a card each birthday.
Grand kids and great grands
were her focus – she was proud of each and everyone of them.
Her other passions included gardening, volunteering for various clubs and organizations. She will be remembered for her baking (cinnamon buns, dinner buns and bread). She loved going for drives into the country looking at all the birds and landscapes.
A celebration of mom’s story was held on Saturday, June 22 at 2 p.m. in Herbert, Sask. at The Living Faith Fellowship Church, 303 Dennis St.
Warren’s Funeral Home were entrusted with the arrangements. For further information call 306-773-8831 or 1-800-267-6606 or visit our website at and express your sympathy on the family tribute wall.
