I knew Bev for many years as we worked at Vernon Jubilee. She was a well respected R.N. Since her retirement we would chat at the community pool and now I miss her smile at the aqua aerobic classes.

Dear Steve and France,
I am so sorry to hear of Bev’s passing. Bev and I were nursing classmates and I have wonderful memories of Bev during those 3 years in residence. My home was in Kelowna, so there were times when I and another classmate would hitch a ride to Vernon with Bev in her cool sports car. She was the wise mature student and we had lots of laughs and fun. My thoughts and prayers are with you. May you find comfort in those wonderful memories that Bev has shared with all of us.
With deepest sympathies,
