With profound sadness, we announce the passing of Judy Marie Beck, our loving and devoted grandmother, mother, auntie, and friend to all whose lives she touched, on March 8, 2022.
Judy was predeceased by her parents Helen and Peter, her siblings, Peter, Marion, Marjie, Leon and her husband Ed. She is survived by her best friend and brother Bruce, her children Toni (Marlin) and Clay (Carlee). As well as her grandchildren, Tessa (Garret), Logan, Mason (Nicole), Lacey (Damon), Megan (Mason), Jade, Chance, Izzy, Cherise and one great granddaughter, Logan.
Born in Edmonton, Alberta on May 31, 1947 Judy was a devoted Oilers and Eskimos fan her entire life. Judy was the 6th and final child to Peter and Helen Lien. We have an underlying suspicion that she was the final child because her personality was so large there was no more room for other children in their house! She spent many summers in Wolf Creek, Alberta were she met the love of her life Edward Peter Beck. They got married in October of 1965 and soon after had their two proudest accomplishments in life, daughter Toni in May of 1967 and son Clay in June of 1968.
Judy spent the majority of her life at the farm her and Eddie built together in Shiningbank, Alberta. They spent their years raising cattle, putting up hay and tending to the most beautiful gardens. In 1994 they welcomed their first 3 grandchildren, Tessa in March and Mason and Logan in October. Through the next 4 years that 3 quickly extended to 7 total grandchildren with Lacey being born in 1995, Megan and Jade in 1997 and finally Chance in 1998. Family was easily the most important thing to Judy and she prided herself on being the Grandma of all Grandma’s. In 2002 Judy lost Eddie to a lifelong battle of Lupus and she spent the next 20 years making memories with her grandchildren. She was known best for hosting holiday celebrations that nobody else could beat. She loved baking, visiting with her friends like Linda, Sena and Gertie, who she held near and dear to her always. She also had a love for decorating, cold coffee, diet pepsi and shopping.
Many years ago Grandma told us that she never wanted a typical funeral. She wanted an event held in her honor instead. This event had to be a celebration of “Judy Style’, complete with fireworks, campfires and maybe even Halloween costumes. With honoring her wishes, the family will be making arrangements in the early summer to have a picnic celebration to share stories and honor the legacy of a life Grandma lived. The date and details will be announced at a later date.
