Edwin L. Beattie

BEATTIE, Edwin L. - The Beattie, Carruthers, and McCracken families want to thank all of Edwin's family, friends and neighbours who shared family meals and car rides with him over the years. Edwin especially enjoyed discussing farming, the history of Caradoc and members of our family trees, as well as touring farming areas with Lorne McIntyre, John O'Brien, Ross Miller, Ron Carruthers, Rick McCracken and others. We will miss his stories, but are enriched by the Beattie genealogy documents that he had preserved so carefully. In later years, he was part of a close community at Seasons, where he enjoyed good meals and activities with his fellow residents and staff. We thank Pastor Beth Parsons of Cooks United Church, who visited with Edwin and who led a very touching funeral service for a "gentle man". The staff of the Elliott-Madill Funeral Home was most helpful and thoughtful in displaying Edwin's memorabilia and assisting us in planning the service. Six relatives and close neighbours served as pall bearers: Ron Carruthers; Don Carruthers; Rick McCracken; Lorne McIntyre; John O'Brien; and John Trott. The ladies of Cooks Church served a delicious traditional lunch after the service. Flowers and plants were appreciated and given to Cooks Church, so that the congregation could enjoy them and remember Edwin who had sat in the pews of Cooks all his church life. All donations to Strathroy Hospital and Cooks Church in Edwin's memory are appreciated.13266893
