The Globe and Mail (Alberta Edition) - - BIRTH AND DEATH NOTICES -

Age 89, sur­rounded by fam­ily peace­fully passed away De­cem­ber 3, 2018. An ex­cep­tional woman leaves an in­deli­ble im­pres­sion of how to live life. In Bev’s own words she wrote:

Thank you for all your love and sup­port my dar­ling daugh­ters and su­perb sons. Thank you for the spe­cial mo­ments and pre­cious me­mories my shin­ing grand­girls and grand­boys. To my dear broth­ers my deep­est l ove and t hanks f or ev­ery­thing. To my ex­tended fam­ily I was so lucky to have all of you and my marvel­lous in-laws and partners to my chil­dren. To my cher­ished and in­com­pa­ra­ble friends thanks for your won­der­ful com­pany. Good-bye to all the lucky men I’ve loved. My en­dur­ing love to that spe­cial man. How priv­i­leged I was to have been a cit­i­zen of two coun­tries. Oh Canada glo­ri­ous and free! God bless Amer­ica! I en­joyed books, films, mu­sic, theatre and travel. And let’s not for­get the plea­sures of win­ing and din­ing! I was a life­long ac­tivist. My last words, Courage All! We can change the world! Don’t lie, es­pe­cially to your­self. "Tend your gar­den, Let it be, Love is all." Heart­felt thanks from Bev’s fam­ily to the Prov­i­dence Manor staff in Kingston, ON who so ten­derly cared for Bev. Fam­ily and friends are in­vited to a me­mo­rial cel­e­bra­tion on Sun­day, Jan­uary 6, 2019 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Sher­mont Condo Party Room at 650 Lawrence Ave. West, Toronto. In lieu of flow­ers, do­na­tions may be made to the Stephen Lewis Foun­da­tion.
