She was a devoted wife, who lovingly cared for him during his battle with cancer, until the time of his death in 1997. Bev enjoyed getting to know Al’s family and loved them dearly. She was a member of Westminster United Presbyterian Church and the Legion Auxiliary. Most of Bev’s life was spent bringing joy and sweet treats to those around her. Although she endured much suffering in this life, she handled it all with grace and faith.
