Ailene Bechard
Bechard, Ailene (nee Schwab) Our 'Grama Dynamite's' spark went out on the morning of Sunday, March 31, 2013 at the Pasqua Hospital with her grandson by her side. Born January 26, 1931 she was predeceased in 1999 by her husband of 50 years Norman, her sisters Beatrice and Iris (Darwin), her brothers Johnny, Lloyd (Kate) and Carlton (Lena), her grandson Kirk in 1993 and her close friend Bill Cozman. She is survived by her daughter Lynn (Dieter) Pelzer, son Gregory (Sharon) Bechard, grandchildren James (Erin) Pelzer, Kelly (Susan) Pelzer, Cortne (Brian Johnston) Pelzer, Brandy Bechard, Aimee (Shane) Geysen, and Dean Bechard; she will also be missed by her great-grandchildren Aurora, Jordon, Chandler, Kale, Tucker, Korbin, Jade, Kaeden, Benett and Mitchell. Also left to celebrate her life is her very special Niece Gail Schoenthaler and family as well as many other nieces and nephews from the Schwab and Bechard families. Grandma lived her life to the absolute fullest, on her terms and with no apologies. She was married in 1949 to Norman Bechard and over their 50 years together they farmed, owned a construction/road building company and owned and operated a gas station & restaurant. They enjoyed their many years at Katepwa Lake with family and numerous close friends, and throughout their life they were snowbirds deciding after retirement to stay half the year in Mesa, AZ. Please join us in celebrating Ailene's life on Saturday April 6, 2013 at Victoria Avenue Funeral Home 2080 East Victoria Avenue Regina, Saskatchewan at 1:00 p.m. with a lunch to follow. Interment will be at a later date (too much snow). Online condolences may be made at In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association in her name.
