It is with deep sadness and yet great joy that we announce the sudden passing of our wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and friend, Beverly Ann Abt, on Friday, January 30, 2015 at the age of 77 years.
After spending her final few days here on this planet, surrounded by family and friends, she was transported suddenly, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, from this world into the presence of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She will be lovingly remembered by her husband, Lewis Abt; her daughter, Carol Abt; her two sons, Wayne Abt and Donald (Tammy) Abt; her fourteen grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren; as well as her extended family and a host of friends. She was predeceased by her parents, Martin and Mary Obermeyer; her brother, Irvine Obermeyer; and her sisters, Marie Reierson and Josephine Zinger.
A Celebration of Life for Beverly will be held on Friday February 13, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. at the Wetaskiwin Full Gospel Fellowship on Highway 13 West (40 Avenue) with Glenn Neudorf officiating. Beverly will be laid to rest at the Lutheran Cemetery on Menaik Road at an interment service for family and close friends at 10:30 a.m. Friday morning.
The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to Dr. Chan and the nursing staff of the Ponoka General Hospital for their kindness and excellent care shown to Beverly during her time there. Memorial donations in Beverly’s name may be made to the Alberta Diabetes Foundation, 1-020 HRIF-East, University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB T6G 9Z9; or to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 10985 – 124 Street NW, Edmonton, AB T5M 0H9.
