Dearly loved mother of Nick (Janice), Jack (Yvonne), Lynn Routledge (Hedley), Anne Morgan (Doug), and Jane Greenman. Lovingly remembered by her 7 grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren.

Beverley made a dedicated contribution to all her students, providing many unpaid hours of extra help after regular class hours to any student who needed extra help. Her teaching career was cut short by her first courageous battle with cancer. Beverley lovingly enjoyed her family, in spite of suffering many years of declining health. The family would like to thank the dedicated staff at Simcoe Manor for the care provided during the last 3 months. Private family service. Cremation. Interment Briar Hill Cemetery, Sutton.
