It is with heavy hearts we announce that passing of Beatrice Hand on Tuesday, October 30, 2018. “Bea” as she was known by to her friends and family, was born in Smith Falls, Ontario, March 24, 1923. She grew up in Haileybury, Ontario. Upon completion of high school, Bea moved to Ottawa to work at Met Life. She later married and raised a family. While busy raising her family, she went to work for the City of Ottawa in the payroll department where she remained until her retirement.
She then moved to Campbell River to be close to her children and grandchildren. In Campbell River, she made many friends and was an active volunteer in the community. She loved to play cards, garden, had a passion for watching figure skating, equestrian sports and attending live theater and musicals.
She is predeceased by her husband Lloyd Hand and son Bruce Hand. She is survived by her daughter Bev Morris (Evan) of Campbell River, son Glen Hand of Camrose, Alberta, and grandchildren Lindsay Holland (Devon), Glen Morris, John Hand (Alyssa).
At Bea’s request, no service will be held. She will always be on our minds and forever in our hearts.
