In 1991, they chose Lakeside, Montana as their retirement location. The couple have four children, Catherine of Edmonton, Alberta, David of Ann Arbor, Michigan, Samuel of Kansas City and Leslie of Philadelphia, PA. Beverly's greatest love was her family. She raised her children with unsurpassed devotion and love, something f or which we will always be grateful. As her kids moved to different locations, Bev was never far behind, always helping out when needed. Beverly's talents were endless. They included sewing, quilting, flower arranging, scrapbooking and knitting. She was an avid gardener and was especially proud of her prize-winning roses cultivated while living in Fort Erie and Red Deer. She also had a passion for photography, decorating her home with family photos. Bev also devoted her time to helping Mel with his construction projects. Together they built eight houses. She helped from start to finish and was very proud of their accomplishments together. Over the last five years Beverly also found time to research and document her genealogy, providing an everlasting record of our ancestral heritage. Thank you for everything, Mom. Bev is survived by her beloved Mel, four children, six grandchildren and three nieces.
