KAEPPELI, Beatrice

Beatrice Kaeppeli
February 21,1937 – May 20, 2021 Switzerland
A heartfelt thank you to all the people who so warmly welcomed our mom to the island. We are grateful for the love and support so many extended her and our dad Jakob. After raising 5 kids, coming to the island in 1989 was a grand adventure. At 52, she learned to speak English, drive a car, and little cultural differences that confused her and we still laughed about years later.

A special thank you to all the Burgoyne United Church ladies with whom she shared so much joy, laughter, and tiny adventures. She forged deep and lasting friendships that continued once she returned to Switzerland in 2001.

We greatly miss her joyful sparkle, unconditional love and compassion…and of course her amazing cooking.
The Kaeppeli Family
