Obituary of Beatriz Cantoria Suguitan

Beatriz Cantoria Suguitan of Red Deer, Alberta passed away on February 21, 2021 at the age of 66 years.


Beth was born in Sison, Pangasinan, Philippines in 1954. She worked at St. Louis University in Baguio City, Philippines as a professor until she migrated to Hong Kong before finally settling in Canada to raise her family.


Beth had a passion for plants and organic farming, and was incredibly crafty! She also loved baking for her grandchildren and spending time camping and fishing with family and friends. She loved to travel and was always expanding her horizons, learning anything from simple crafts to building a house from the ground up.


Up until her death, Beth always had a grand plan for the future. She was a smart, tough woman with a very kind heart. She will be missed by everyone who has crossed paths with her.


Beth is lovingly remembered by husband Domingo Selga Suguitan; son Dominick Suguitan; daughter Sandy Suguitan (Marlon Bullecer); grandchildren Anikka Suguitan, Abygail Suguitan, Jherykho Lloyd, Adonis Bullecer, Kiarah Bullecer, Domino Bullecer and Kitana Bullecer; brother Pedro Cantoria; sisters Natalia Bugarin, Evelyn Torralba and Marlene Laranang; nieces and nephews from the USA, Philippines and Australia; and many, many friends and relatives. She was predeceased by her parents, Segundino Cantoria and Carolina Delizo, and her brother, Reynaldo Cantoria.


Due to COVID-19 social gathering restrictions, a private family funeral will be held.


In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be directed to the Alberta Diabetes Foundation, 1-020 Li Ka Shing Centre for Health Research Innovation, University of Alberta, Edmonton AB, T6G 2E1; or online here.
