YUFFE, Beatrice GIVENS, Kathleen Mary January 20, 1927 - Winnipeg, Manitoba June 5, 2020 - Calgary, Alberta Aug. 10, 1928 - May 31, 2020 It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmothe­r and great grandmothe­r Kay Givens. Born in Toronto to John and Margaret Cox, mom was the youngest of eight children. For 59 years she was the loving and devoted wife of the late Earl Givens. Mom wore many hats in her 91 years; the one that fit best, the biggest and brightest was motherhood. Mom knew that in the end all that really mattered was family. She worked tirelessly to teach her children the same life morals and values that were passed onto her from her parents. She raised strong, caring and compassion­ate children who will be forever grateful for having her in their lives for as long as they did. She fought long and hard to continue loving and supporting us, her family. She may rest peacefully knowing her work here was complete and her legacy large. We will never forget her gentle touch, subtle and sometimes wicked sense of humor, her impish grin or how vibrantly blue her eyes turned when feeling just a little bit mischievou­s. Left to morn her passing are her children, Joan (Rob) Philips, Richard (Sue) Givens, Marilyn (Karl) Elias and Sandra Givens. Nine Grandchild­ren and fourteen Great-grandchild­ren. She was pre-deceased by her husband Earl Givens (2008) and her grandson Jason Givens (2019). A private Interment will be held at 3:00 PM on 2020-06-12 at Eden Brook Funeral Home & Cemetery, 24223 Township Road 242, Calgary, AB With much gratitude for a long life well lived, we sadly announce the passing of Beatrice Yuffe. She will be greatly missed by her daughter Marilyn Sheftel, her son Hartley Yuffe and daughter-in-law Cita Wasserman. Bubby Bea’s loss will be profoundly felt by her granddaugh­ters Tracey Sheftel Holland (Mark), Danielle Sheftel and Carrie Sheftel Fryer (Dominic), and her adoring great-grandchild­ren Jeremy, Haylie, Hudson, Harper, Hayden, Hank, Sloane and Johnnie. As the last member of her generation she will be fondly remembered by her cherished nieces and nephews across North America. Beatrice was predecease­d by her husband of fifty-seven years Abraham, her parents Harry and Freda Polsky, brother Murray Polsky, sister Shirley Kapitan and in-laws Aaron and Faiga Yuffe. In 1991, she felt a deep loss by the passing of her beloved son-in-law Harvey Sheftel. Born and raised in Winnipeg, she and Abe married in 1947. They resided there until 1966, when the family moved to Calgary. Bea spent many years in the retail world and in particular the jewelry industry. She sent many a young couple out of the store with their engagement ring and wedding bands… an accomplish­ment that always brought a smile to her face. Even while working full time into her 70s, she was always inspired to plan joyous family dinners and memorable celebratio­ns. She was a dedicated member and volunteer at the Beth Tzedec congregati­on for fifty-three years, serving as Sisterhood president and Synagogue Board member. The entire Calgary community was the beneficiar­y of her abundant energy, talent and kindness. More recently, she felt blessed to work with the women in her condo craft group to knit baby blankets for the premature infants in the Neo-natal ICU.
