Pickering, Elizabeth "Beth"



Wife. Mother. Grandma. Daughter. Sister. Friend. Teacher. Beth was all of these and so much more. Elizabeth was born to Gerry and Fred Nash, in 1959 in Moose Jaw, where she grew up. Following her passion, she attended the University of Saskatchewan where she received her teaching degree. 

Teaching was truly her calling and passion, having taught mostly Kindergarten for 37 years. She was also a devoted mother and wife, with her sons Jonathan and Christopher and her husband Richard being her constant priority and joy.

Beth passed away April 8, after suffering a stroke in 2021 that was caused by a brain tumour.

She was predeceased by her parents Gerry and Fred Nash, and her mother-and-father-in-law Wilma and Dave Pickering. She is survived by her husband Richard, sons Jonathan (Chantel), grandson Cash, Christopher (Stephanie), and her brother David (Dar), along with numerous other relatives.

The family would like to extend their deepest gratitude to the Homecare and Palliative staff, you are truly unsung heroes who are absolutely amazing. An extra thank you to PJ, Amanda, and Tracey, you went above and beyond with your care.

In keeping with Beth’s wishes, a Private Family Service will be held at a later date.

In living memory of Beth, a memorial planting will be made by W.J. Jones & Son Ltd. Please sign the memorial register at website: (Obituaries). Chrystine Dacey- Funeral Director
