ADD A MEMORY

To Bev's family: We were surprised to hear of Bev's passing. We first met your Mom and Grandmother when she joined the National Grocers Bowling League on Friday night. Bev always had a joke to share or story to tell, sometimes about her family. She was very proud to tell us about Caleb's arrival - a very proud great-grandma! She was an amazing bowler and we were marvelled by her knitting projects - Christmas stockings, baby outfits. Bev often won our most headpin prize and the same year might carry away top average, or cross, or first place team or Divisional Champ. She enjoyed our year end parties and hosted many of us to a Christmas Get Together. She had an infectious laugh which she shared with all. It was our pleasure to have met her.


No one has the perfect words to make your sadness go away, but may you find comfort in knowing how many people wish they did.

I was very sad to hear of the news of Bev Clark’s passing after a brief illness. I have so many good memories growing up down the street and spending after -school hours over at the farm or in the pool getting swimming lessons from Bev. In later years Bev was a tremendous support to my mother Doris and her assistance with housekeeping and Rob’s plowing allowed my mother to stay in her home her entire life. It would not have been possible without Bev’s assistance. I am also glad that Bev was able to stay in her own home while so many of that generation have had to move to assisted living. She knitted Christmas stockings for all 4 of our children, which they still hang faithfully each year, and she kept an active interest in our family throughout her life, as we did in hers. She was fortunate to enjoy good health and a clear mind throughout her life, no doubt due to her wholesome lifestyle and active participation in sports even in her advanced years. We could all take a lesson from that.
I last saw Bev this past spring when I was visiting Kempark and she dropped by for coffee. She did not seem much different than she was when I lived there 30 years ago. One by one the founding homeowners of Kempark are moving on and it is sad to see the end of an era. As I drive around the area now I am not sure it will ever me the same. Thank you for a great childhood and many fond memories.

Robert, Deb, and David.

Please accept my sincerest condolences! I can't express my sadness of Aunt Bev's passing. But she is at peace and resting now! The memories of Her and the farm are so clear and vibrant again. It has been a long time since I have been to the farm, but I did take My wife to meet her when we were home years ago. Still the same Aunt Bev, warm and friendly and her undeniable laugh. Thinking of all of you!

Love,

Tim
