Bella (Billi) Bower nee Beauchamp was born in Notikewin, Alberta on August 19, 1936. She had 13 siblings, 2 died in infancy making her the youngest child in her family. She lived an adventurous childhood on the family homestead in Northern Alberta until her dad died and life became difficult. She travelled throughout Alberta and Ontario until she made her way to Vancouver, BC & met her future husband Bill. They settled down and had 2 daughters, Kellie & Kim. Some time in the early 60’s mom came in contact with Jehovah’s Witnesses doing door to door work, after that she never looked back. She was a faithful Witness for over 60 years. Being a social person, she loved the ministry so much and engaged in all types helping people to learn about our Creator Jehovah. Mom dearly loved her family and was always there for them, she was our Rock. She enjoyed many hobbies but most of all she loved to laugh & sing.

Billi leaves behind to mourn, her husband Bill, her daughters, Kim & Kellie, her 4 grandchildren, Brandon, Danielle, Cody and Ayden, 2 great-grandchildren, Brianne and Dakoda. Many extended family & long time friends will also miss her zest for life.

You can rest now Mom until we see you in the Paradise. Memorial service will be held at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses 32759-7th Ave Mission, BC, on Sat. November 26, 2022 at 2 p.m.

My aunt was so much fun to be around, yes laughter and singing were her gifts. I remember summers with her and my cousins at the farm. She was an excellent cook and baker she had such a flair for entertaining her family. During the summer I was staying there strawberry picking to make a few dollars. She tried to teach me to sing "Delta Dawn" and she even recorded it. After a trip to emergency for stitches in my head, she filled that terror with a trip to Dairy Queen. She was an incredible human being. She will be missed but with so many fond memories for everyone to enjoy.

Rest in peace Aunty Billie

It’s with a sad but thankful heart that I share a few words. Sad for the loss of a mom, wife and companion that she was but thankful for her faith in God, the many wonderful memories she left us with and strength that sustained her.
Her generosity, laughter and love will stay as sweet memories for me…she shared her home with me the day of my wedding so I had a place to get ready and helped dispel the nerves and jitters that faced me.
She was truly a beautiful, Bella, woman.

As I child I looked forward to you coming and visit our Family. I will forever remember my visit with you, uncle and the girls in Langley. Going to a convention with you then seeing Neil Diamond as well. I have so many fiond memories of you and glad I was able to go visit a few times once I was an adult, The last time I saw you was at my dads funeral and I was so happy to see you and introduce you to two of my 3 children. I regret not making it to see you in Mission. Thank you for your Love and support through my own losses. I will miss our phone calls and miss your comments on my Instagram posts. Rest easy. 🙏💗 Forever in my heart

Billie - I was sad to hear the news of your passing. But the past few times we tried to chat, you were in a lot of difficulty.
You are at peace now and out of pain. So enjoyed our visits with you and Bill over the years.
My heart goes out to Bill and the family. You were an amazing lady!
You will be missed by all.
Hugs
Betty

Dear Billie,
What an extraordinary woman you were especially considering your challenging background.
You were working in a little cafe in Peace River Alberta and I was peering in the window in 1954 looking for my sister Reva. It was winter and very cold and apparently, the windows were frosted. I was 12.
I came to Vancouver in 1960 and I again found you. You and Bill allowed me to move into your home after I had my daughter Kym in 1964. You babysat for me and Kellie and Kim played with my baby girl.
You were my mentor, teacher, and sister for all these years. You taught me so much about life and I try to pass this on to other girls like us.
Thank you My Billie for all. I will hold you softly in my heart forever You amazing woman.
Your friend forever,
Maureen Kennedy and Kym
