Throughout her life, Beryl Paintin was a force to be reckoned with. Although Beryl was suddenly taken from us on August 27, 2021 at the age of 84, that force will remain with her legacy. She had been battling dementia for the past few years.
Beryl was born in Swindon, Wiltshire, England on January 10, 1937 where she spent the majority of her early life. After leaving school, Beryl started a career in printing and honed her craft at the Burrough Press. In 1975 with her family in tow she emigrated to Canada and settled in Winnipeg. Here she continued her journey in the printing industry working for such companies as Hignell's, Print It, Dave's Quick Print, and wrote for Transcontinental Publishing. She played a part in the business community sitting on the board of the Assiniboia Chamber of Commerce. She decided to leave the printing industry and become a small business owner, operating Act 2 Fashions in St James. Leaving her brick and mortar business Beryl decided to help local small businesses through her self-published SmallTalk coffee shop newsletter. She also took part in a number of editing and writing assignments for a variety of independent clients.
Beryl is predeceased by her sister Mary and her brother Ronald. She is survived by her husband Peter, locally her son Jonathan (Sheila) and granddaughter Mackenzie. In England she is survived by her son David Fudge (nee Phillip), his wife Tanya, and his children Jamie and Charlie.
Beryl loved to be out in the community and could often be seen chatting with her buddies in Tim Hortons. Those who knew her would describe her as "that lovely British lady". Her passing has left a significant hole in the Winnipeg community.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Alzheimer Society of Manitoba, 10-120 Donald Street, Winnipeg, MB R3C 4G2.

  • To Peter and family, I am so sorry to hear of Beryl's passing. I worked with Beryl at the Transcontinental Weeklies, and Beryl was always so much fun to be around - always cheerful and laughing. I loved her writing and her wonderful wit. Love and hugs to you Peter, and to all of Beryl's family. Brenda Fehr, Winnipeg - Posted by: Brenda Fehr (Former co-worker) on: Sep 12, 2021
