SKANES, Elizabeth (Beth)
December 13, 1934 – May 31, 2019
Peacefully on Friday May 31, 2019 in her 85th year with her daughter Heather at her side. Beloved wife of the late Maxwell. Loving mother of Allan (Lisa), Heather (Robert), and the late David. Cherished grandmother of Rachel, Stephanie, Owen, Jake and Emma. A retired nurse who spent much of her life caring for others. A proud mother of her children who was always available to listen and lend a supportive word. Deeply grateful for all she had in life. She found joy in the community of her church, peace and solitude in the community at Gracefield Camp and love while laughing with her extended family and friends. Beth will be deeply missed by all those whose lives she touched. A visitation will be held at the
