Beryl Daphne Joyce Graham passed away peacefully on Saturday, August 22, 2020 at the age of 87.

Beryl was a loving and caring woman. She was the foundation of our family; anytime you needed advice, Beryl would know the right thing to say. She was a fantastic cook and baker in her younger years and had a great love for making jams, pies and pickling from the harvest on the farm she owned with her husband Ben. Beryl also had a great love and talent for poetry that made her imagination and sense of humor shine. Beryl did not like to be around any hostility, and so became the peacemaker among her family and friends. She took memorable trips with her good friend Sandra which she reminisced about often. Beryl was sadly pre-deceased by her beloved husband Benoit Graham, son Paul Graham, and great-great grandson Cayden Lewis. She will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by her brothers Tom (Diane), and Bob (Joanne), her sisters Iris (George), and Carol (Ross), her sons Gary, Michael (Lydia), Richard (Dez) and Marc (Lisa), her daughter Danalynn (Mark), grandsons Andrew (Amanda), Eric, Michael and Nathan, granddaughters Carol, Christine (Jason), Ashlee, Amy, Jessica, Rebekah, Alyssa, Rachel, Jennifer, Keri (Buster), Ashley and Allie, 20 great grand-children and 8 great-great grand-children. Cremation has taken place, and a private family service will be held at Memory Gardens Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Children’s Wish Foundation, the Cambridge & District Humane Society, or the Salvation Army.

I loved and will greatly miss my little sister, Beryl. I remembered in 1935, when I was six years old, Beryl was three years old in the hospital sick with Polio. Every time after mom and dad came home from visiting her, Iris and I couldn't wait to hear about how she was doing and were very eager for her to come home. The doctor wanted her to wear special boots, but Beryl kicked up a fuss and didn't want to wear them. She threw them out and went outside in her bare feet to play. She had a spunky personality and never "let any grass grow under feet". My deepest condolences go out to her family.

Love,
Tom and Dianne Wyse

I will miss my big sister Beryl. When I was 8 years old, she used take me out on dates when she needed a chaperone. We had to be sure to get home in time for her next date! She was so beautiful and lovely. I will miss our steady phone calls and a great her sense of humour. My deepest sympathies go out to Gary, Michael, Dana, Richard and Marc and their families. May looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow.

Love, Carol Greenman

Joanne and I were heartbroken to learn of Beryl’s passing. We send our condolences and love to Beryl’s children and their families during this difficult time.
I have many wonderful memories of my sister Beryl. As little kids, my twin sister Carol and I always felt adored by Beryl, she gave us her time, took us to the movies and played with us. As we grew older, I always had comfort knowing Beryl was looking out for us. We didn’t see each other as often as we all would have liked once we started our own families, but I will cherish the time we did spend together, our regular phone conversations and laughs over the years.
Thank you Beryl for being an incredible big sister. You will be missed very much and in my heart forever.

My sincere condolences to all of my cousins and their families. Auntie Beryl and I shared an interest in our family’s genealogy and she was always happy to share the information she had gathered. I wouldn’t have known where to start. Thank you Auntie Beryl for sharing all of your hard work and your appreciation of our family’s history. Rest In Peace.

Goodnight sweet Gma. Thank you so much for accepting me into the family. Thank you for understanding my kids had exceptional needs and having a glass of wine with me when we were both just done. I miss our phone calls, how happy you were to see me when I finally got a day off to see you. Your great grandbabies and I miss you so very much already. I am lucky to have had you in my life. You were an amazing woman and I'll never forget you

My heartfelt condolences go out to all my cousins. Auntie Beryl was an amazing woman and I will always remember her smile, laugh and her advice, “There’s always another street car coming, Marnie”.

Growing up with gma we had so many memories together. Gardening on the farm, making maple syrup and of course all the crazy stunts I pulled as a teen. Gma and I love remembering those ones the best . Our favorite one was when I snuck out of the house and Gemini followed me all the way in to town. I ended up having to call her to come and get the dog. We would always laugh about that. I'm going to miss talking about our time together and hearing all kinds of great stories from her growing up as well. I really miss you gma and all the memories we would share. You are forever in my heart and always will be my greatest memory of all. Thank you for all you did and gave me. Love always your favorite babysitter.

Words can’t describe the pain and sorrow I am feeling with loosing you. After spending the day going through all your albums to pick out pictures of you I was just flooded with such amazing memories of my childhood and life with you. I couldn’t of asked for a better person in my life to look up to and learn from. I owe everything positive to you grandma. You were and always will be my rock, and my everything. I know you are loving being with grandpa to share your eternal life with and all our loved ones who have passed.
Grandma you overcame so much in life, more then most could even imagine and you still wore that gorgeous smile of yours loud and proud.
Until we meet again.
I love you 💕
