Beverley Merilla Hlady
April 27, 1933 – July 17, 2020
Beverley passed away peacefully at home with family at her side on July 17, 2020, aged 87 years. Survived by her daughters Paula, Carolyn (Rick), Sharon (Bob); grandchildren Kevan (Kim), Stephen (Kelly), Paul, Michael and Rachel; great grandchildren Jack, Copper and Cayden and her sister Lorraine “Bubby”. Pre-deceased 28 years by her beloved husband Paul, after 39 years of marriage, Bev chose to devote herself completely to the support and encouragement of her growing family. Be it hosting frequent pool days and barbeques at the house in Burnaby, or trips out of town to visit grandchildren, mom was always there for us. When she wasn’t attending the numerous school and sporting activities of her grandchildren, Bev could be found enjoying bowling, crosswords, mahjong and watching jeopardy, or baking her famous cookies while enjoying a glass of wine! Special thanks to Dr. Ivanishvili at RCH, doctors and staff at the Surrey BC Cancer Clinic, the incredible nurses at Fraser Health home care services, and deepest appreciation to daughter Paula who provided home care & support. Together they aided mom in her courageous battle with NH Lymphoma from which we all gained 2 1/2 extra years of precious memories. Given the circumstances a memorial will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to the BC Cancer Foundation would be appreciated.
