Beulah Vivian Quart (Kinkaid)

Born in Mountain Township, Ontario March 23, 1919, Beulah Vivian Quart (Kinkaid) died in Brampton, Ontario, January 10, 2017. She was 97.

She was the daughter of James Lorne and Rachel Ann Kinkaid.

Beulah grew up in Winchester.

She married Hubert Allister Quart in 1942. He died in 1982.

She was predeceased by her brother Russell in 1982.  Her son George Brian died on February 29, 2016.

She is survived by her daughter Lorna (Robert) Patterson and her sons, Gary (Merle) and Michael (Catherine), eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

She was a woman of many parts.

Trained as a nurse at the Cornwall General Hospital, she loved the operating room and practiced her profession at the Cornwall General and the Hotel Dieu in Cornwall and the Glengarry Memorial Hospital in Alexandria before finishing her career at the Maxville Manor, a long-term care residence for seniors.

Having moved to Maxville in 1952, she helped her husband transform a rural general store into a bustling IGA food-market, and because she loved to shop, she purchased and operated her own small town department store. She loved her community but nothing gave her more pleasure than being a founding member and active participant in the Maxville Curling Club.

Beulah served on the boards of the SDG Housing Authority and St. Lawrence College.  She was also a member of the Order of the Eastern Star.

She will be interred with her husband, her son and her Kinkaid family at Maple Ridge Cemetery, Chesterville, Ontario at a later date.
