Bev is going to be greatly missed by everyone whom was lucky enough to have known her as a family member, friend or colleague. I have known her in all 3 roles. She was a compassionate,giving and caring person and instilled these traits in her children which was evidenced by their devotion to her. I feel we all have an angel watching over us now especially her much loved children and grandchildren. Please accept my sympathy at this time. Glenda

This was one of the nicest ladies I have ever had the privilege of getting to know over the past year and a half. A tremendous loss to everyone who knew her.
