September 2, 1936 – December 28, 2021
Loving and devoted daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend.
On Tuesday December 28, 2021 at the age of 85, Beatrice peacefully passed away in her sleep after recent complications with lung disease.
Beatrice was a fun loving and outgoing person who loved her family dearly, and there were many to love.
She had 3 sons, Brook, Drew and Ryan. Beatrice loved spending time with the boys raising them to be very kind and capable men. Some of her fondest memories included summers spent going for walks in the woods and canoeing along the shores with her boys, at the cottage on Brady Lake.
In later years, she was blessed with 6 grandchildren who she doted on unconditionally.
Beatrice being the youngest of 14 surviving children, had a very large but close-knit family and she loved every one of them (even if they did drive each other crazy now and then). She always tried to find the best in others.
In recent years, additional health issues made life increasingly difficult for her. Despite these challenges, she enjoyed going through old photos and reminiscing of days gone by. She managed to retain her keen sense of humour and enjoyed telling and laughing at jokes. It was always important to her to look her best, making sure that she had her lipstick on for pictures or a meal in the dining room.
Bea, you will be missed, you are missed.
Beatrice is predeceased by her parents Terenti and Christine Borisenko, brothers Nicholas, Michael, John, Andrew, Alexander, Walter, George, William, Jack and sisters Dorothy, Ruby, Frances and Alice.
Beatrice is survived by her brothers Victor and William Edward (Eddie) and sister Anne; sons Brook (Janice), Drew, Ryan (Kristina); and her grandchildren Maggie, Noah, Nila, Erik, Lydia and Amelia.
