1935 ~ DOREEN BEIERBACH ~ 2020

The family of Mrs. Doreen Beierbach, beloved wife of the late Herb Beierbach Jr., passed away peacefully with her family by her side, on February 12th, 2020. Mom leaves to cherish her memory four children, Barry Beierbach of Strathmore, AB, Rodney (Cecilia) Beierbach, Roxanne (Dave) Marr, and Rainy Deis (Kevin Peterson), all of Medicine Hat, AB; ten grandchildren; eleven great grandchildren; sister, Pearl (Alex) Palama of Hawaii; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband, Herb; eldest son, Wayne; parents, Emil and Viola Darr; in-laws, Herb Sr. and Marie Beierbach; stepmother, Elsie Beierbach; and sister and brother-in-law, Lillian and Jack Hellman. Mom was born in Fox Valley, SK on January 27th, 1935. She was raised north of Hilda on her family’s farm. On July 25th, 1953, she married Herb and together they continued to farm/ranch the homestead until they retired in 1977 and moved to Medicine Hat. Mom then went to work at Kresge’s for several years and then Joyline until she finally RETIRED. She loved her garden and her flowers, and a year never went by when she did not plant a vegetable garden. She was always giving away the vegetables that she grew to others. Mom had a green thumb! She had the most beautiful flower gardens. No weed could get by her! Mom really loved the visits from her grandchildren and in later years, her great-grandchildren. She always made sure there were plenty of sweets and Hawkins Cheezies for them. Over the past several years, Mom started to pamper herself by having her nails done by one of her granddaughters. She would look forward to the “next” ones, always full of smiles about the colours and designs that were done. Mom was also the VERY BEST cook! She always made everyone’s favourite dishes when they visited. She would ask “what would you like?”, and then had it made when we arrived with plenty of leftovers to take home along with desserts and other sweets. We are going to really miss “THE COOK”!! In her honour, we will have a come & go garden party to celebrate Mom’s life on Saturday, June 13th, 2020 at 765 Taylor Road SE, Medicine Hat. from 1:00p.m. – 4:00p.m. Everyone is welcome to come and reminisce amongst family, friends, and flowers. Everyone is welcome to bring their own lawn chairs. Condolences may be sent through or to subject heading Doreen Beierbach. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to
