It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of Bev Hahn of Ft. Assiniboine, AB on April 12, 2016. One of the strongest and bravest women we have ever known. She leaves behind her devoted husband, Mervin Hahn, three daughters; Joyce (Robert) Sheren, Cheryl (Darvin) Evans, Brenda (Ed) deJong, seven grandchildren; Kristin & Paul, Jayln & Chris, Cody, Alexa and Tyson; four great grandchildren; Ava, Garner, Cali and Lachlan; two siblings, Yvonne (Brian) Kangas, and Ron (Nancy) Nelson; numerous cherished nieces, nephews, friends and her beloved little dog Maggie. Her precious grandson, Justin predeceased her in 2011. The family is honoring her wishes and will not be having a service. This is a poem she has left behind for all of us.
The Guest Book is expired.
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free, I'm following the path God laid for me. I took His hand when I heard His call, I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, to work, to play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, I've found that peace at the close of the day. If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, ah yes, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full, I savored much, good friends, good times, a loved one's touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free.
