Cremation services have been held.
Florence died peacefully in hospital on Wed. August 30, 2017 after a short illness. Flo was married to Earl (2001) and had four children: Marilyn (Craig) Hotson in Winnipeg, Cheryl (Leonard) Forbes in Turks and Caicos Islands, Wendy (Scott) Paterson, and Tom (Bev) Gibbons. She also had fifteen grandchildren and eleven great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Of her three brothers, only one is still alive.
Flo lived in many places across Canada (Toronto, Oakville, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Calgary, Dorset, Bracebridge, Windsor). Wherever she lived, she found a church in which to be active and involved. Paulin Memorial was her last church home. She was especially fond of her friends there, particularly the Saturday Night Ladies. She also treasured her relationship with the family of Christabel Paul, the refugee family from Burma sponsored by Paulin.
Flo's last residence was Chateau Park Nursing Home where she enjoyed sitting out in the courtyard, watching the boats on the Detroit river and the many geese. She loved to be near water and swimming was one of her main passions. She loved knitting (especially bed socks), reading, dolls (Barbies, in particular), sewing, making jam, canning, and baking apple pies. Flo liked to help people and was always looking for ways to respond to the needs of others.
Her strong faith was important to her throughout her life. When it was time to move on, she was ready to see what God had waiting for her. While she will be missed by those who knew and loved her, she was the first to say that she had lived a long and good life and couldn't ask for anything more.
Is tentatively set for 3:30 pm on Sunday, October 8, 2017.
Her remains will be interred with Earl's in Bracebridge.

April 6, 1920-July 10, 2016. After a short illness surrounded by her loving family, Irene Bevan passed away after 96 adventure-filled years on earth. Born in rural Saskatchewan, Irene was the youngest daughter of Gertrude and Chauncey Close. Her parents believed in a good education so their daughter became a teacher in a one-room schoolhouse when she was only 19 years old. Irene married Jack M. Bevan in August, 1941 and dutifully followed him on troop trains during his many placements in the Second World War. After the War, settling in Saskatchewan and farming in the Druid/Dodsland area, Irene and Jack started their family. Dennis (Nancy), Donald (Nancy), Allan (Ilona), William (Mary Ellen) came along. The family moved to Saskatoon then Toronto as Jack pursued further education and work as a social work administrator. The family finally moved to Windsor in 1959 when Jack became the Executive Director of the Children’s Aid Society—a position now held by his youngest son, Bill. In the early 1960s Irene returned to her work as a teacher, becoming an oft-called upon and highly effective substitute instructor for the Windsor Board of Education. Irene had a quietly confident demeanor; could play the piano and lead a song while having a wonderful calming influence on her classes. This note was reported by her two youngest sons who were in her classes in grades four and five. Eventually Irene worked as a family assessment worker recommending child custody arrangements for the Official Guardian’s Office contracted through the Essex County Children’s Aid Society. Irene was commended by Family Court Judges for her insightful and sensitive casework. Irene and Jack were long time members of Paulin Memorial Presbyterian Church in Windsor and enjoyed the fellowship they found there. After Jack died in 1983, Irene had the good fortune to meet Reginald Pritchard. They married in 1988 and lived happily together in Windsor until his passing in 1994. Irene later returned to Saskatchewan and married her childhood friend, Bill Beaman. She was walked down the aisle by her 2 eldest sons, Dennis and Don, 2 weeks after 9/11. Irene was 81 years old at the time. She and Bill enjoyed each other’s company until his passing in 2010. Upon Bill’s death, Irene once again returned to the city she loved and lived at Oak Park Terrace in Windsor. Special thanks to the staff of Oak Park for their care and support. Also thanks to Dr. Greenaway, St. Elizabeth Health Services and Diane Smith at Community Care Access Centre for their compassionate assistance. Irene is survived by her sons, daughters in law, and the Bevan grandchildren—Maya, Gwen, Brendan, Kieran, Rhys and Mikaela. Irene also loved the attention she lavished on her great grandchildren—Aeryn, Jack and Merryweather. Irene loved her life; she loved her family, and was generous to all with her time. In lieu of flowers please consider donations in Irene’s name to Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Society. A private family memorial service will be held at Families First 3260 Dougall Ave. South Windsor, 519-969-5841.
