Beverley Caroline Skogen, 79, was released from her physical body, five years after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. Her daughters were by her side.
She was born in 1939 to Clarence and Dorothy Bildeaux. She spent her early childhood in and around Danbury, WI. For the next 25 years she lived in logging camps in NE Minnesota. She lived many years in Ely, MN, where she raised her family and worked at several restaurants and stores, including Pamida and Piragis Northwoods Company.
She was a natural caretaker. She was there no matter what the circumstance. She saw the good in everybody.
She enjoyed picking agates and berries, hunting deer and grouse, and loved being outside.
She was proud of her Ojibwe heritage and learned all she could so she could pass that on to her family.
Her family was her greatest joy. She savored every moment she had with her grandchildren.
She is survived by daughters Debby (David) Gravunder, Sherry (John) Williams, and Dana Stroschein. She had 8 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. Also surviving is her brother Tom (Sonny) Bildeaux, and many nieces and nephews.
