Unexpectedly yet peacefully, on Tuesday September 10, 2019, Beverly Banman, aged 81, passed away at home.
Bev was predeceased by her parents, Frank and Beatrice Whitehead; brother Bill Whitehead; sister Joyce Rempel; and her son David Banman.
Remaining to cherish Bev's memory are her husband of 55 years Peter Banman; son John and wife Allison Banman; and granddaughters, Victoria and Alexandra Banman. As well as her brother Nelson Whitehead and wife Mary Anne; sisters- and brothers-in-law, Ruth, Dorothy, Mrytle and Bill, Kathy, Katherine and Wayne and Dale and Donna. She also left behind many nieces and nephews and their families.
Bev was born on the farm in the Municipality of Morris. She married Peter in Winnipeg in 1964 and had her two sons John and David. Bev and Peter lived up north at Churchill, MB and Baker Lake, NWT until they returned to their home in Transcona where she lived the rest of her life. Bev adored her granddaughters Victoria and Alex and they were the sunshine in her day. She was very active with the senior's club in Transcona, bowled once a week, and Bingo every Wednesday night. Bev loved to knit and crochet and donated most of what she made to the Christmas Cheer Board, Ronald McDonald House and Winnipeg Humane Society. Bev would often be found sitting at home in her chair reading a pocket book with a cup of coffee in her hand and the tv on TSN. She enjoyed her travels with Peter to Europe and visiting her sister Joyce and family in BC.
A celebration of Bev's life will be held on Tuesday, September 17, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at Glen Lawn Funeral Home, 455 Lagimodiere Blvd. There will be a service with a reception to follow.
If friends so desire, donations may be made in memory of Bev to the Christmas Cheer Board, Winnipeg Humane Society or Ronald McDonald House.
