Beth Jurista

February 5th, 2021

We are saddened to announce the passing of Beth Jurista on February 5, 2021.  She leaves behind, to mourn her loss, her beloved husband of 67 years, Emil and their children Ed (Angela), Tom, Don (Janet) Bev (Ben).  As well as her many grandchildren and great grandchildren who, like her kids, will miss her quick wit and funny faces! 

Beth was an accomplished baker, winning blue ribbons at the county fairs in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan; you were always welcome at the house, the cookie jar was always full, there was cinnamon buns or bread braid on the counter.

She had many friends and acquaintances, made through her years of being in the North Kamloops bowling league as well as selling Avon, where she won many sales awards.  Beth was active with the Kinsman and Kinettes of Kamloops from the late 1960’s well into the 1970’s, even serving as president.

If you knew Beth, then you knew her affection for a good joke (not always clean), she was always ready for a laugh or to crack a face for the camera. Making people laugh brightened her day, especially her grandchildren.

We will miss you mom, dearly!

At this time, there will be no memorial service, but a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date when we can safely gather together.


Dear Jurista Family, I was very sorry to hear about the passing of your Mom. I have such great memories of many “after school” visits at the Jurista home and the baked goodies for our snack and Tahiti Treat sodas with Mrs. J making us laugh. I loved looking at all of her Avon Ladies on display in the living room. I hope the many years of joyful memories will be a comfort to you all at this sad time. Bev and Ben it has been too long - I am sending my love and hugs.

We're very sad to hear of Beth's passing and send our sincere sympathy to all the family for your loss.

Sorry to read of Beth’s passing. “The vintage hand held electronic game master!” before iphones and iPads! All our best.

Uncle Emil, Ed, Tom, Don, Bev and families. We are so sorry for the passing of Aunty Beth. She will definitely be missed. She was truly one of a kind, a straight shooter and always told you what was on her mind. I will never forget the great sense of humour she had. Lots of laughs. Please cherish all the great memories she gave us and hold them close to your heart. Please except our love, hugs and prayers going forward. Love you all! Rob and Shelley❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Hello Jurista Family We are so sad of the loss of Mrs J. I have great memories of her with my Mom at bowling events / parties. Thinking of you all during this difficult time. Always Brenda and my crazy family.

Our deepest condolences to the family. Beth was a wonderful, fun and lively lady. She will be dearly missed by any who ever had the opportunity to know her. She always called Dad the "Old Bastard" and he will miss that coming from her. Please take care everyone at this very sad time.

To Emil,Ed,Tom ,Don and Bev Thinking of you all at this sad time. Beth was like a sister to me and loved her too pieces. We had many good times and laughs over the years. I especially loved her sense of humour. She loved you all so much, she will be missed by all of us. May happy memories carry you through this painful time. You are all in my thoughts, my heart and my prayers.... .Love Audrey

With deepest sympathy to Emil and family... We will miss Beth and all the fun times we have shared with all of you. May our love and prayers bring all of you comfort and peace.

Thinking of the whole family: we will miss your mom for her sense of humor and quick wit, which you all have inherited...

Sending you prayers and thoughts of love and support upon the passing of your, mother. Aunty Beth will be missed. Our sincerest condolences to all. Take care,

To The Jurista Family... The loss of someone dear to us is never easy. I have so many happy memories of spending time with Aunty Beth throughout my life. She has a very special place in my heart. After Lawrence met her for the first time - he said she is definitely the "Matriarch" of the the entire Jurista Clan. Aunty Beth was one person you'd never think of "crossing" (LOL) - oh... but there was ONE family member that did try... and let's just say, "Beth won". Aunty Beth's love of family and her wild sense of humor will be sorely missed. With Love, Dwayne
