BURKE, BEVERLY “BEV” ANN It is with broken heart that we announce the passing of our sister Beverly “Bev” Ann Burke on March 11, 2019. Born in Halifax, she was the eldest daughter of Ralph and Ellen (Proctor) Burke. Bev leaves behind her three sisters, Trish Burke-Dodds (Bruce), Sandi Nash, and Susan Butler (Michael). She will be lovingly remembered by her nephews, niece, great nephews, great niece, many aunts, uncles and cousins. She was predeceased by her parents and brother-in-law, Gary Nash. Bev was the kindest of souls, a friend to all who met her and brightened the lives of so many people. She started her career as a childcare assistant and later worked for Prescott Group as a silk screener. Upon her retirement, she volunteered with Feed Nova Scotia. Bev was involved with Special Olympics Nova Scotia, loved to bowl, and was a member of Saint Benedict's Parish. In her younger years she enjoyed spending summers in East Dover at the cottage. Christmas was her favourite time of year and she loved to shop and buy heartfelt gifts for family. Thank you to the angels of 5A Victoria General for the care and compassion shown to our sister during her journey home. Thank you to her RRSS caregivers and community. A very special thank you to Stacey Strickland “Love You to Pieces”.

I LOVE this pic of Bev. She was so much fun to be around. Bev had an incredibly funny personality but at the same time so very thoughtful and caring of others. She sure touched my heart in a big way and I feel so fortunate to have known her, if only for a short time. “San”, you were her rock and biggest cheerleader, through the good times and bad. The love you shared was so evident and enviable. I will remember Bev fondly and offer my deepest condolences to the entire family. To know Bev was definitely to love her.

I was saddened to learn of Bev's passing, I worked with her at Atlantic Bag (Prescott Group) for many years. She was always up for new challenges and we missed her so much when she retired although she would drop by to visit with her mom. Thinking of her tonight and thankful for the wonderful memories I have of her.
