In her early years Beverley loved to play badminton and bridge. She was a strong swimmer and diver, and won competitions for her aquatic grace and style. As a student Beverley enrolled in Home Economics. As a mother she designed, sewed and knit distinctive clothes for herself and her children. She cooked tasty food. She was an avid gardener.
Throughout her long life Beverley played piano and sang. She gifted everyone in her large family with a love of music. Her celebration of life (date to be announced)
will be filled with music and the voices of her family singing together.
