Francis “Frank” Beuerlein passed away peacefully at North Okanagan Hospice on August 2nd, 2015 at the age of 90.
Frank was born in Unity, Saskatchewan and raised in Spruce Grove and Calgary, Alberta. While living in Calgary, he met his future wife, Louise. They were married in 1953 – a union they shared for fifty-seven happy years. During his younger years, Frank was employed as a salesman for Canada Packers. In time, scenic Yoho National Park beckoned Frank and Louise to relocate to the beautiful mountain town of Field, B.C. This was where they raised their family while Frank was employed for twenty-five years with Canada Parks. Louise and Frank also owned and operated a small grocery store, “Beuerlein’s Grocery” in Field. In 1984, Frank and Louise moved to Vernon, enjoying their retirement years in the sunny Okanagan.
Frank is survived by his loving family: son, Brian (Lynn) Beuerlein of Delta, B.C.; three daughters: Leslie Ann (Larry) Clark of Prince George, B.C., Elizabeth Beuerlein of Vernon, B.C., and Roberta (Lonny Ellwyn) Beuerlein of Langley, B.C.; seven grandchildren: Alexandra, Brendan, Brittany, David, Kelsey, Kristine, and Scott; brother-in-law, George (Jackie) Shepherd; numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members. Frank was predeceased by his loving wife, Etta “Louise” in 2010; brother, Walter; and sister, Betty Storm.
The funeral service was held in the chapel of Pleasant Valley Funeral Home on Saturday, August 8th, 2015. Interment followed in Pleasant Valley Cemetery. Following the committal, family and friends gathered in the Pleasant Valley Tea Room for a reception.
