Stone, Elizabeth Gertrude


Born on September 30, 1921 at Port Alberni, B.C. and passed away peacefully at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Comox, B.C. on January 8, 2010. She was predeceased by her husband Leonard Stone, her sister Ruth Hillier and her brother Thomas (Bud) Tugwell.


Beth is survived and will be dearly missed by her brother Bernard (Leona) Tugwell, her sister-in-law Vonda Tugwell, her daughter-in-law Joan (Mac) Noullett and numerous nieces and nephews. Beth grew up in Ucluelet, BC and lived in Fanny Bay from 1975 to 2008. In her leisure time Beth took art lessons and painted in oils – many of her pictures are hanging in the homes of her family and friends. She also enjoyed travel, having traveled to Great Britain, Europe, Japan and Thailand with her sister and also took many fishing trips with Len in their motor home.


The family would like to give a special thanks to Dr. Langhans and the third floor nurses and staff at St. Joseph’s Hospital for the care they gave to Beth. A celebration of Beth’s life will take place from Comox Valley Funeral Home, Cremation and Reception Centre, 1101 Ryan Road on Friday, January 15th at 2:30 p.m. Flowers gratefully declined in consideration of donations in her memory to the Comox Valley SPCA, Box 1284, Comox, BC V9N 7Z8.
