She was also a proud member of the Can-Ital Ladies Society for over 25 years.

The family would like to express their gratitude to the staff of the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home for their kindness, compassion and amazing care, and would request that any expressions of sympathy take the form of donations to them.

Beverly Manholt
September 25, 1943 - January 30, 2010

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Beverly Ann Manholt on January 30, 2010. She was predeceased by her parents Andrew and Gladys Amundrud of Dawson Creek, B.C. Beverly is survived by her loving husband Tony and her two devoted children Sherrie Manholt and Darwin (Amanda) Manholt. She will forever be “Nana” to her two beloved grandsons Erik and Justin.

Bev was born on September 25th, 1943 in Lloydminster Saskatchewan. Her first few years were spent on the farm in Tangleflags before her family moved to Lloydminster. After her schooling she completed a secretarial course. Bev moved to Dawson Creek where she worked at various secretarial positions. On April 16th, 1966 she married Tony Manholt of Dawson Creek, B.C. and together they raised their family. Over the years Bev excelled in her many interests and hobbies like ceramics, sewing, and macramé, but Bev’s kind and generous spirit are the things her friends and family will remember the most. Whether she was cooking an impromptu turkey dinner for a basement full of boisterous teenagers or brewing a fresh pot of coffee for a visit round the kitchen table Bev always made you feel loved, welcome and special. In 2003 Bev and Tony made the move south to Kamloops to be closer to their grandchildren, the absolute joy of their lives. Bev loved Kamloops and its surrounding lakes which offered countless opportunities for drives and camping trips with the family in the new motor home.

Special thanks to Dr. Waller as well as the staff and volunteers at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home in Kamloops, B.C. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home in Bev’s name. No formal service by request.

MARCH 1, 1919 - FEBRUARY 4, 2010

Our Mother, Edna Brown, passed away peacefully in the arms of her daughter Linda and dear friend Marlene on Thursday, February 4, 2010 at 90 years of age.

Mom will always be remembered by her children, Bob (Darlene) Brown of Gibsons BC, Barbara (Bill) Kroll of Sundre AB, and Linda Mattioli (Walt Saar) of Kamloops BC; grandchildren Raymond, Trent, Taia, Tara, Lois, Jacquie, Shelly, Brian and Bonnie; numerous great grandchildren and her sister Margaret Mann. She was predeceased by her husband Horrie and numerous brothers and sisters.

Mom was born to Johanna and Daniel Olsen March 1, 1919 in Alix AB. The family moved shortly after she was born and homesteaded in the Vermilion AB area for many years. Life on the farm with seven brothers and sisters made for interesting times and colourful stories that will remain with us forever. Farm life was wonderful but as the children matured opportunity for work was not there. At a young age of 15, Mom moved to Banff AB to join her sister Alpha. Shortly after arriving in Banff she met the “Love of her Life” Horrie Brown. The couple married November 18th, 1939 in the Presbyterian Church in Banff and their journey began. Their son Bob was born in December 1940, and daughters Barbara in 1942 and Linda in 1948. While Dad served in the Army during World War 11, Mom was raising two small children in Banff. When Dad returned from the war he worked helping to build the Banff Jasper Hwy. Mom wanted to be closer to her husband so took on the position of head cook for 22 men at the camp on the highway along with caring for two small children. Returning to Banff would bring new opportunities for the family as well as a new addition to the family. Mom worked at many jobs in Banff during her life and ended a twenty-year career with The Bay in 1978. Our home was open to many people over the years, from tourists from around the world to summer staff that needed a place to stay. In 1979 Mom and Dad made a huge decision to leave Banff and retire in Richmond BC to once again be closer to Mom’s sister Alpha. In 1981 they moved once again to Abbotsford where they would stay for many years, being active in the community and enjoying their love of curling. Dad passed away in 2000 and Mom moved to Kamloops in 2002 to be closer to family. She had a wonderful life here and enjoyed her new apartment and her independence. Playing Keno with her new friends at the North Hills Mall was a great pleasure. Unfortunately Mom was dealt a difficult hand a few years ago but that did not stop her from enjoying life and moving on. She has spent the last couple of years at Pinegrove Care Center and found new life in the staff and residents there. We would like to extend our deep appreciation to all the staff at Pinegrove, you are very special angels. We lived in peace knowing that she was in your wonderful care. We would also like to thank Mom’s special friends Betty, Marlene and Rod, without you, this journey would have been impossible.


Love all your family

A Memorial Service to celebrate Edna’s life will take place at 2:00 pm on Thursday, February 11, 2010 in the Kamloops Funeral Home Chapel with Pastor Vern Frudd officiating. A Memorial Service will also be held in Banff in June 2010 at which time Edna will be laid to rest with her husband Horrie in the Brown Family Plot.
