Obituaries For Cindy Elaine Scott (Bekevich)

September 7, 1957 – October 27, 2020

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Cindy Scott at the age of 63 years.

Cindy lived a full and exciting life with very little limitation. She was known as a gypsy to many of her friends and family. Cindy had a lively nursing career that lasted 30 years and her natural drive to care for others could have sustained her career for another 30. She had a keen knack for crafts and could make almost anything, blankets, clothes, dolls, hats, jewelry, Christmas ornaments, glass pictures, and more.

Cindy was diagnosed with Lung Cancer in 2014, but she didn’t let that diagnosis take over her life. She began to travel and enjoy the time she had left, and she did it proudly.

Cindy leaves to mourn her son Cody (Jessica) Scott and their son Rome, her daughter Amanda (Kevin) Tanner and their 5 children Brook, Dylan, Shaila, Adeline, and Marshall, her brother Lorne Bekevich, as well as many close cousins, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and a world of friends.

She will get to hug her mother Phyllis Bekevich once again, as well as her father Marshall Bekevich, her brother Dale Bekevich, and many other family members.

Due to the newest restrictions put in place, Cindy's memorial service will be postponed until further notice. Updates on her service will be posted here when available.

My thoughts are with Cindy's family during this difficult time. I met Cindy when she lived in the same campground as me. We quickly became friends and I will forever treasure the time we spent crocheting and watching movies! As well as our hot tub dates after her physiotherapy.. She was there to help me through the process of my husband having open heart surgery last March and I will be forever grateful. RIP Cindy you will be missed by everyone who had the honour of meting you.

Cindy was a high school friend who was always cheerful and full of humour. Our classmates have written beautiful words to her and her family and especially her special friend, Denise. We were a close class and have kept at touch. It was wonderful to see her a few years ago at our "60th" get-together. We will remember her with fondness. Enjoy this new journey, Cindy.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a funeral?

A funeral is a ceremony for a deceased person prior to burial or cremation. A funeral gives the opportunity for family and friends of the deceased to gather and mourn the passing of their loved one, to share cherished memories and celebrate their life. A funeral is a vital first step to help the bereaved heal after the loss of someone special.

What type of service should I have?

If no pre-arrangements have been made, the type of service is entirely up to you.  Services are usually held at a funeral home, community hall, or a place of worship. There is a wealth of different services, ranging from a traditional religious or military service to something a little more non-traditional. Our funeral directors are more than happy to work with you to figure out what would be the most appropriate.

Who are Funeral Directors and what do they do?

Funeral directors are in charge of all the logistics following a death. They complete all the necessary paperwork, make arrangements for the transportation of the body, and put into action the choices made by the family in regards to the funeral service and the final resting place of the body. Beyond the logistics, funeral directors are there to provide moral support and guidance for someone coping with death.

What if a death occurs away from my home town?

We are here to help, we can arrange to have your loved one transported home from anywhere in the world. We will assume responsibility and make the proper arrangements to have them returned to the community. We use the same organization that brings our military home when needed.

What is embalming and what purpose does it serve?

Embalming sanitizes and preserves the body; it also slows down the decomposition process and enhances the appearance of the body damaged by traumatic death or illness. Embalming gives time to the family of the deceased to arrange a service, and allows the family the option of having an open-casket viewing.

What do I do if I am not satisfied with the way a funeral was handled?

Funeral homes and funeral professionals in Alberta are licensed by the Alberta Funeral Services Regulatory Board. If you are unhappy with the way a funeral was handled or the actions of a funeral home in Alberta, you may speak with or proceed with a complaint process to seek resolution of the matter. More information is found at http://www.afsrb.ab.ca/  or by phone at (780) 452-6130 

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of the funeral varies depending on the wishes you have. The average cost of a funeral is between $5,000-$7,000, however, it varies greatly depending on the kind of service you desire. In general, cremation tends to cost less than burial. The costs include professional services including transportation, embalming and other preparations, the use of a facility for the ceremony, and the purchase of a casket or urn.

Can I personalize a funeral?

Of course you can, in fact, more and more people are opting for a more non-traditional personalized service. There is no right or wrong way to celebrate somebody’s life. There are many unique ways to celebrate life, let the funeral director know exactly what your desires are and they will honour your wishes.

Do we need to have an obituary notice and what is included in one?

It is highly recommended to have an obituary notice that’s either placed in a local newspaper or placed online. An obituary lets the public know that a death has occurred, and gives them information about the service. Obituaries generally include the deceased’s full name, age, city, and date of birth and the city they were living in when they died. It also includes the name of the deceased’s spouse, along with the names of anyone else significant in their lives, such as parents, children or grandchildren. Space may be limited in a newspaper obituary, but you may include a little blurb on the life and legacy of the deceased. An online obituary or memorial website offers you the chance to add a lot more about the deceased.

What happens if the death occurs in the middle of the night or on the weekend?

We are here to help, funeral directors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year.

Do I need to have an embalming

No, embalming is often an unnecessary expense, even if a viewing is desired. There are times when we would recommend embalming, especially if there is an extended gap between death and burial or cremation.

Why are funerals so expensive?

Funerals are labor intensive and require a lot of work from a lot of people. The cost of a funeral goes beyond merchandise such as caskets, it includes the services of a funeral director in making the necessary arrangements, filling out forms, and dealing with all the other people involved in the death (doctors, lawyers, insurance companies). Funeral directors work an average of 40 hours per funeral. The cost of operating a funeral home is factored into the cost as well. Funeral homes are a 24 hour operation, with extensive facilities that need to be maintained and secured.
