DUBÉ, Beverley ‘Bev’ (née Lebsack)

August 23, 1955 – May 15, 2023

Bev, 67, passed away peacefully at Dulcina Hospice Calgary after a 7 year battle with triple negative metastatic breast cancer. She spent her last days surrounded by family and dear friends.

Bev was born in Vulcan, AB on August 23, 1955. She was raised on the farm along with her two siblings Brian Lebsack and Brenda Ully. After graduating from Vulcan High School she moved to Calgary and worked in various office administration positions.

Bev met the love of her life Roger, in 1973. During their 47 amazing years of marriage, they enjoyed an international lifestyle, living and raising a family in 11 different countries, visiting numerous cities and experiencing multiple cultures.

Bev and Roger are blessed with four incredible children, Charlene, Brandon, Taren, and Cameron, and 10 amazing grandchildren, Devin, Kaelen, Autumn, Andrew, Joshua, Reese, Huxley, Hannah, Sawyer and Lincoln who are the absolute joy of Bev’s life.

Throughout the different places they lived, Bev and Roger developed lifelong friendships that Bev deeply cherished. One of her greatest joys was to often bring together both new and old friendships and was most happy when all were enjoying each other’s company at her home or on countless travel adventures. Bev forever made friends feel special when together. One of her favourite places to spend time with dear friends was in Huatulco, Mexico, and a highlight was catamaraning throughout New Caledonia Islands.

Bev had a lifelong love of travelling, fitness, biking, knitting, and cooking. She was involved in different churches around the world and her children’s schools. She volunteered for numerous charitable organizations in various countries including Malaysia, Venezuela, and Vietnam.

Bev’s love for her strong faith and friends was infinite. She had a brilliant smile, loving nature and heartfelt interest in everyone she knew. We will forever remember this remarkable, beloved wife, mother, grandma, sister, cousin, aunt and friend.

Bev is preceded in death by her father, Vic Lebsack and nephew Michael Ully. She is survived by her devoted husband, Roger Dubé, loving children Charlene (Luigi), Brandon, Taren (Val), and Cameron (Jenny), and her beloved mother Esther Lebsack.

    We are deeply saddened to hear of Bev’s passing. Our love goes out to Roger and family at this difficult time. We had the extra pleasure of not only being cousins, but next door neighbours in Calgary. Bev entered our lives and never exited, even though we didn’t see each other often, every time we did, it was like there was no gap. That was the kind of person Bev was. Loving and genuine, and she always put us first. Bev was an angel on earth and now she occupies the same with her Heavenly Father.

    I am truly saddened by the news of Bev’s passing. I had the opportunity to befriend Bev, Roger and their boys while Roger was working in Halifax with Slumberger. Our children were young and Brandon loved to come by the house and play Pacmac, the first computer game that my daughters played who were a few years older. My last visit with Bev & Roger was about 10yrs ago while visiting Charlene’s family in Nova Scotia. Roger a huge loss of your soulmate. I hope to get to Calgary this summer as my best friend moved there recently and I will be sure to look you up. My deepest sympathies Debby (Nagle) Noel

    Roger and families we send all of you our condolences and prayers. We got lucky and had this beautiful couple move in next door to us at Encanterra. We instantly knew that they were our kind of people, kind, easy going, generous and fun to be around. Sharing a meal prepared by them was a real treat, Roger serving up something barbecued and Bev with all the trimmings.
    Bev gave out such a bright shiny ora that all were attracted to. The song ‘This little light of mine’……. And she did shine, To me is Bev’s song.
    Both Blair and I feel truly blessed to have had ‘that little light’ shine on us and I know that she will
    continue to Shine in our hearts.
    She will be missed by all.
    Roger again sending all of you our love and prayers
    Charlene and Blair Kjenner
