Beatrice “Bea” Mary Valin

February 27, 1938 - July 09, 2020


It is with intense sadness that we announce the passing of Beatrice Mary Valin at Drayton Valley Hospital and Care Centre on Thursday, July 9, 2020 at the age of 82 years.

Beatrice will be lovingly remembered by her beloved husband of 55 years, Donald Valin. Along with his family, they will cherish the memories of Bea’s love for golfing, cooking, poetry and her passion for her two grandson’s, Tyler and Dylan.

To her family and many dear friends, Bea desired to leave you with the comfort of this reading:

I Made it Home

I just wanted to let you know that I made it home.

The journey wasn’t an easy one, but it didn’t take too long.

Everything is so very pretty here, so white, so fresh and new.

I wish that you all could close your eyes and that you could

See it too.

Please try not to be sad for me.  Try to understand God is

taking care of me…I’m in the shelter of His hands.

Here there is no sadness, no sorrow, and no pain.

Here there is no crying and I will never hurt again.

Here it is peaceful when all the angels sing.

I really have to go for now…

I’ve just got to try my wings.

Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Bea’s Life will be held at a later date.

The family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude for the care and support given by the EMTs, the Emergency Care Staff and Dr. Van Dyk.
