    Very sorry to have heard of Bev’s passing, my condolences to you and the rest of the family. There was a time there when she was giving me a bit of motherly advise as well 🙂 I had intended to see you and share our memories together at the Celebration of Life but learned yesterday that I will be unable to attend. So glad we did share part of our lives together and that those memories remain part of everything yet to come.

  • Donna Lambert says:

    To Doug and Bev’s cherished children and grandkids. What a woman! She was so full of life and enthusiasm. A great workmate, supportive and sharing. I worked with Bev for 7 years at Okanagan College. She was the BEST! What she wouldn’t try and do for her students whom she believed in so much! And that family of hers, she loved you all so and was so proud of each and every one of you. I could write all day sharing her stories about each of you. Today as you remember Bev, I know that she is smiling and sending her love back to you all. We will all miss her so. Rest in peace, dear friend. Our hearts are sad with missing you, but our lives are better for having had you in them. Donna

  • Bernie & Ev Monteleone says:
