Bessie Kubos

Bessie Kubos, our beloved mother, grandmother & friend, passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on Monday, March 24th at the age of 81. She was welcomed to her eternal rest with the loving arms of those who preceded her in death; parents Albert and Annie Tolley, her brother Tommy, sisters Mary and Doris, her first husband Martin Wilchuk (1966), son Martin Wilchuk Jr. (2002), second husband Dan Kubos (2010), and her son Wayne Wilchuk (2013).

The solid foundation of the Kubos home, Bessie spent her entire life devoted to her beloved family and many lifelong friendships. Her home was a constant, welcome haven; Friday evening dinners were an anticipated tradition. Bessie enjoyed nothing more than the sounds of laughter from a hectic household. With her teapot and treats ready to greet everyone, Bessie always left you feeling better than you did before you’d arrived.

Bessie and her precious dog Zoey spent hours visiting with friends and neighbors in the warmth of the summer days, while her winters were spent cheering on her grandkids hockey games or watching curling and the cooking channel on TV.

Bessie loved with her whole heart, unconditionally and without judgment. It was this kind, gentle spirit that embraced you and made you feel safe. Those who knew and loved Bessie have been left with many treasured memories.

Bessie’s legacy will continue to live on within the hearts of her loving family; her children Marilyn (George), Elaine (Don), Diane (Gary), and Danny (Renee), 9 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren and one on the way, and her brother-in-law Clifford Kendall as well as many nieces, nephews, wonderful friends and neighbors.

The Memorial Service was held at Cherished Memories “Serenity Chapel” on Saturday, March 29th.
