Beverley Ann Tetrault (Cote)

August 20, 1939 - February 26, 2016


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Beverley Ann Tetrault (nee: Cote) on February 26, 2016. Bev was born August 20, 1939 and passed away in Nelson, B.C., after fighting a courageous battle. Bev was a loving wife to Eli, a wonderful mother to Wayne (Barb), Debra (John) Hines, and David, a spectacular grandmother to Tamara, (Bili) Rodrigues, Sara Burgess, Jenelle and Mathew Tetrault. She was a proud great-grandmother to Lauren Hoft. She is predeceased by her father and mother, LeRoi and Dorothy Cote. Bev lived a glorious life of an RCMP wife, having the privilege to travel the country and lived in several different cities and towns before returning to her birth city to retire. She loved her small business, Bev’s Ceramics, which she ran for over 26 years. She was a huge asset to her community, volunteering for community drives, hospital auxiliary, and many other functions within the community. The family would like to thank the staff at KLH and especially Dr. Jeanette Boyd and Dr. Brandon Tuvel for their personal care and professional excellence to mom. A celebration of her life will be held on April 9th, 2016 at the Prestige, 701 Lakeside Dr, Nelson BC, from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation in her name.

Eli and family
Bev is, was and always will be a beautiful person. She is now in that lovely place that she had a glimpse of, free of pain, in the warmth of the sun and with her love ones, who have crossed before. We never forget our loved ones, remember the wonderful memories and all that she gave of herself.

Dear Eli and family:
We were very sad to see Bev passed away the end of February. She certainly did fight the good fight. We were always so happy to see her and chat with her even when you could see her struggle. We are sure she is in a far better place. Please accept our sincere condolences.
Love and Blessings, Glenda and Michael Mills

I met Bev when she was teaching ceramics. I loved her great sense of humour. She was an amazing, patient teacher. She helped me make some wonderful pieces of ceramics. Some I gave as gifts and some I will have forever. Her classes were always fun. One day we had a bear in the tree outside the shop and threatened Eli we would all be staying overnight. She loved her family and cared for her friends. It’s my pleasure to have met her and grateful for her teachings. She will always be remembered every time I put flowers in the vase I made, have a coffee in the cups I made and all the visits in the mall we had after her retirement. Love you Bev and love and blessings to your family. Until we meet again. Light and Love!!! Moe

Dear Eli and Family
It was with deep sadness that I learned of Bev’s passing. Bev and I attended school together from grade 1 through 12. She worked diligently on our 20th and 50th Class reunions. Her father Leroi worked alongside my father at the department of Highways. Bev always had a smile and know she is there today smiling at us all from a better place. My thoughts are with you and your family Eli
