BEIERLE, Ramona June

BEIERLE, Ramona June (nee Rasmussen)
Oct 23, 1929 – June 22, 2011

It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Ramona June Beierle on June 22, 2011 after a courageous battle with lung cancer. Mona, as she was known to friends and family, was born in Gull Lake Saskatchewan and attended school in Tompkins. She worked for 41 years with the Bank of Montreal beginning her career in Maple Creek, continuing in Swift Current and retiring as a Branch Manager in Calgary. Mona married Allan Beierle in 1969 and although later divorced spent happy times together. Mona loved people and animals and loved being with them. She stayed connected to her work colleagues through the BMO retiree events and was an active member of Westminster Presbyterian Church where she enjoyed fellowship and worship. She loved being “Auntie Mona” to many and thoroughly enjoyed being able to get together with family and friends. In her quiet unassuming way she sparkled when she was around people and her pets. She had spunk and pluck, and will be fondly remembered for her quick wit, loving kindness and her generous spirit. Many friends and family returned Mona’s love in generious support and comfort. Ramona was predeceased by her parents Opal and Marius Rasmussen, her sister Vella Doreen Stock, and nephew Norman Rasmussen. She leaves behind many who loved her: Her twin Marvin (Marie) Rasmussen of Vancouver, brother-in law Alfred (Norma) Stock of Medicine Hat and many nieces and nephews, grand niece and nephews, friends and neighbours. Mona was a precious gift to us all. Our lives are richer for having her in them. Friends and family will be received at the Tompkins Legion Hall, Tomkins, Saskatchewan on June 28, 2011 at 11:00 A.M. for viewing followed by interment at the Tompkins Community Cemetery at 12:00 noon. Please join us in Calgary for Ramona’s Celebration of Life at Westminster Presbyterian Church (290 Edgepark Blvd. N.W.). On Thursday June 30, 2011 at 11:00 A.M. We extend special thanks to the staff at Rosedale Hospice for their careful watch and tender care. As an expression of sympathy, in lieu of flowers, donations in Mona’s memory may be made directly to the Rosedale Hospice 1245 – 70 Avenue S.E., Calgary AB. T2H 2X8.
