Mildred Beatrice (Bea)

Mildred, 94, passed away of old age November 29, 2013 at her home in Nanaimo, BC. She was born October 6, 1919 in Barrie Ontario.

Bea was predeceased by her husband of 53 years, John (Jack); by her parents, Stuart and Pearl Burridge; and by her sister, Margaret Tibbits of New Brunswick. Also by her beloved dog, Mitzy. Bea is survived by her son, Alan, his wife Patricia and daughter Suzanne of Nanaimo; and her older brother of two years, Cecil Burridge of Barrie Ontario.

From an early age Bea worked as a sales clerk for F.W. Woolworth in Barrie. During most of her adult life, she was an avid 5-Pin Bowler at Brechin Lanes and only gave it up when she quit driving at 91. She and Jack enjoyed square dancing and were members of The Travelling Squares in Nanaimo. They also golfed for many years, both before moving to Nanaimo and long after.

There will be no service at Bea’s request. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Nanaimo SPCA, or the charity of your choice.
