Angeline Mary Benjestorf

September 29, 1920 – November 4, 2016


Angeline was born in Yorkton Sask. Sept. 29, 1920, and passed away Nov. 4, 2016. She is predeceased by her husband Howard and is survived by her daughter Berna Dean and wife Nancy, daughter Beverley Anne, son Michael, grandchildren Brittany (David), Nicole (Joel), Alex and great- granddaughters Norah and Lucy.

Angeline began her life in Yorkton, Sask. and married Howard Benjestorf in 1941. She followed her husband across Canada during his tenure with the R.C.A.F. During that time she served as a Civil Servant Secretary on the several RCAF bases where Howard was posted. The last posting was the Comox Air Force Base. At the end of the war they decided to make their home in the Courtenay/Campbell River area and ventured into forming a log hauling company. Angeline did secretarial work at the Evergreen Elementary and Discovery Passage Schools.

After retiring in 1984, they enjoyed travelling to many countries and enjoyed winters in Hawaii and Palm Springs. Angeline was a member of the Hospital Auxiliary, Red Cross, Blood Donor Clinic, Eastern Star, Daughters of the Nile and Tirzah Club. She loved her family and friends, music, sewing; crafting, skating, playing badminton and she tried hard to play bridge! She made many life long friendships and will be remembered for her sense of humour and a smile for everyone.

The family would like to thank the staff of Berwick by the Sea, the staff of 2 North and Dr. Pinsloo at Campbell River Hospital.

Flowers are gratefully declined. Donations may be made to the Campbell River Hospital Foundation if you wish.

By her request, there will be no service. Mom hates to miss a party!
