Beatrice Brock divided her time with casual work and her family. She also looked after her mother, Grace, until she went into a Lodge. She spent a lot of time volunteering throughout the years with church activities and numerous sport venues in Saskatoon. One that was special to her was Curling. She loved to watch and volunteer her time with curling. Beatrice attended the Saskatoon Apostolic Church (Full Gospel) from when she was a child. She attended youth group, where she met her husband Clayton, bible studies, children’s ministries, and women’s aglow when she was older. With the church she also volunteered with the church camp, Kedleston Gospel Camp until 1984. In 1984 her family started attending St. Stephen’s Anglican church where she was involved in many bible study groups, Alpha, Marriage-In-Counter retreats, and volunteered throughout the church.
Outside of church she volunteered with three organizations alongside with her husband Clayton Brock; the Western Development Museum, Saskatoon Police Services, and St. John’s Ambulance. Over the years of her volunteering and church groups she has made many friends who have been a big part of her life. She is missed every day.
