Bernard Bartholet

July 2, 1926 - October 25, 2011


Bernie passed away peacefully on a warm sunny day surrounded and held in the loving arms of his family on October 25, 2011 at Moog hospice house in Penticton at the age of 85 years.

Bern is survived by Dolores his loving wife of 52 years, daughters Cindy Bartholet (husband Doug Scott), and Debra Arthur (husband Scott Arthur), four grandchildren, Melissa Peet (nee Bartholet) (husband Matt), Greg Bartholet (and Savannah), Jennifer Arthur (and Troy) and Michele Arthur (and Bjorn) as well as two great grandchildren Trinity Bartholet and Natalie Peet.

Bern was born in Waterhole Alberta. Years later he worked on the Alaska highway with the Highways Department and Ambulance Service. He moved the family to Oliver in 1968 and purchased and tended to a ten acre orchard and continued to work for the Department of Highways.

He can be remembered by friends and family as a kind, gentle and patient man and always had a positive happy attitude with life. He enjoyed the outdoors and loved to camp, fish and travel with his family. He enjoyed his coffee shop friends. He was also quite the dancer….his daughters and grandchildren will always remember the Bernie dance….

He requested there be no formal funeral service. A private family gathering was held at the Oliver cemetery on October 29th

Bernie’s mother and father had 11 children. He was predeceased by his mother Gertrude and father John and brothers Bob and John, sisters Annie, Theresa and Helen. He is survived by his brother Martin and sisters Mary, Dorothy, Agnes, and Diane.

The family would like to thank Dr. Entwhistle, Dr. Myslek, Lynn Wilson from palliative care and staff and the S.O.G.H. and Penticton General Hospital. Special thanks to the staff at the Moog & Friends Hospice House in Penticton for the compassion and care the last month of Dad’s life. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Moog & Friends Hospice House in Penticton.

Heaven has just received a very special angel…..

Although our hearts are hurting, we know you are walking, talking and laughing again….
