It is with deep sadness that the family announce Pauline Patricia Beland’s (nee Adams) peaceful passing on January 14, 2022.
She will lovingly be remembered by her sons Ronald, Michael (Marnie), daughter Chantal (Dean); grandchildren Ryan (Alicia), Richard, Acacia, Raeghan, Joshua, Zachary, Nathan, Logan, Dolly; great grandchildren Wesley, Sophie and Raiyden; brother Russell; sister Yvonne; numerous nephews, nieces, and friends. Predeceased by her loving husband of 56 years, Ron Beland, her parents John and Doris Adams and daughter Katherine.
Pauline was born in Leeds, England and moved to Canada with her mother and father. She was raised in Ontario where she met the love of her life, Ron. Together, they settled in Alberta to raise a family.
Pauline will be remembered as a loving wife, devoted mother, and grandmother. She spent countless hours playing board games with her children and grandchildren and was always up for a game. She was a wonderful cook, baker, and a master gardener. She would often retreat to her garden and always enjoyed the beauty the outdoors offered. In 1996, Pauline retired with her husband to Island Lake, where they enjoyed good friends and good laughs.
The family wishes to express their gratitude to the health care professionals at the Misericordia hospital and the Cross Cancer Institute. A special thank you to Dr. Burger of the Athabasca Family Health Centre.
A private celebration will be held for the immediate family.
“Mom, your wings were ready, but our hearts were not.”
