It is with our deepest heartfelt sadness that we announce that Beverley (Bev) Eyre of Salmon Arm, BC was called to heaven on Saturday, May 12, 2012, with her family by her side. Bev was born in Victoria, BC on October 19, 1938. She married her husband William (Bill) Eyre in 1958 and thereafter settled in Nelson, BC. In 1979 Bev and Bill moved to Balfour where they lived for many years. Bev graduated as an LPN during her years in Nelson and worked at both the Kootenay Lake Hospital and Mount St. Francis Hospital where her soft spoken gentle nature was gifted upon many. In 1992 Bev & Bill relocated to Salmon Arm, BC where Bev worked at Bastion Place until her retirement.
Bev loved returning to the Kootenays, especially during the summer months spending endless days picking huckleberries with her family. She was an exceptional cook and loved baking for her family and friends. She was also known for her beautiful crochet work and her talent won her numerous awards and ribbons.
Bev will be lovingly remembered by her husband William (Bill), sons Richard and Bill, both of Lethbridge, AB; daughter Katherine Eyre-Huber (Steve) and their children, Cody and Dylan of Armstrong, B.C.; daughter Dawn (Paul) Nedelec of Balfour, BC and their children, Kristen of Kelowna, BC and Brandon of Lethbridge, AB; also surviving her are her brother Richard (Gloria) Alexander of Salmon Arm, BC; sister Linda (Fred) Messmer of Aldergrove, BC; sister-in-law Ceone Smith of Salmon Arm, BC; and numerous nieces and nephews, along with many close friends.
Bev was predeceased by her brother Colin Alexander and sister Lorna Zalkoski and brother-in-law Jim Eyre.
A service in Bev’s memory will be held at Fischer’s Funeral Home in Salmon Arm, BC at 11:00 a.m. June 2, 2012. In lieu of flowers, anyone wishing to honour Bev, may do so by making a donation to the B.C. Cancer Foundation in Bev’s memory. We will miss you mom.
