1934 - 2019

It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of Beverley, at Misericordia Place, on August 31 at the age of 84. Beverley faced her lengthy battle with Alzheimers and recent cancer diagnosis with strength and grace.
Beverley will be mourned and deeply missed by her husband Clare, children, Desiree (Alex), Derrick (Pam) and Curtis (Karen); grandchildren, Rachel, Samuel and Derrick Junior; sister and brother-in-law Darlene and Robert Matchett. She was predeceased by her infant daughter Michelle and her parents, George and Beulah Wade.
Bev was born in Regina, Saskatchewan. In 1953, she married the love of her life, Clare, who she met when working part time at a movie theatre while attending high school. Once married, Bev quickly adopted Clare's traditional German cooking recipes, including perogies and cabbage rolls, and was forever baking up a storm, especially during the Christmas holidays when the children were relentless in their freezer raids. Without question, the most important part of Mom's life was family. She sewed dance costumes into the wee morning hours, mended hockey gear, and supported her children through various community activities. Bev always made sure the children were washed and waiting at the front window for Dad's arrival home when he was travelling with his work. She always treasured the annual family vacations travelling by trailer to Provincial Parks from BC through to Eastern Canada.
Outside of family life, Beverley was an avid curler, skipping her rinks for many years. She played bridge, golfed at Southwood, belonged to Beta Sigma Phi and over the years volunteered for the Red Cross, Silver Broom in Regina, and canvassed for the Canadian Cancer Society.
It wasn't until much later in her life that she began a working career. From 1983 to 1995 she worked for Welcome Wagon as area manager of Saskatchewan and then Manitoba and Northwest Ontario. After retirement Bev and Clare enjoyed travelling with family and friends to Disney World, Spain, Portugal, Cuba, Hawaii, and throughout the United States. They lit up dance floors wherever there was music and the company of friends.
A memorial service will take place at a later date.
The family would like to thank the MP2 staff at Misericordia Place for their loving and compassionate care. They offered tremendous comfort in challenging times over the past couple of years.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Misericordia Place, Alzheimer Society of Manitoba, or a charity of your choice.
