Devoted Mother and Grandmother
Feb. 17, 1941 – Oct. 11, 2015
It is with the heaviest of hearts that the family announces the passing of Beverley Jean Cooke on the evening of Oct. 11, 2015 at the age of 74. Beverley passed away peacefully at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital with family by her side.
Beverley was predeceased by her parents, Edna and Bill; and brother Larry. Beverley is survived by loving husband Trevor; daughters Terri (Doug) and Lorie (Jeff); stepchildren Tyler (Tammy), Bryce (Tanya), and Travis; grandchildren Kristin, Amber, Taiya, Talon, Jayden, and Branden; great grandchild Aiden; sister in law Rose (Clark); as well as many nieces, nephews, and friends.
Beverley was born in Port Alberni, B.C. in 1941. She worked at the Government office for 35 years before her retirement in 2001. She was known for having the most vibrant smile and laugh that touched everyone. Beverley loved to travel, fish, and go boating to her favourite place; Beauty Island on Great Central Lake. Beverley will be deeply missed by all and whoever had the privilege of knowing her.
It was Beverley’s wish that no formal service to take place. Instead, a private family gathering will be held at a future date. The family would like to thank Dr. Smit and the staff at West Coast General Hospital and Nanaimo General Hospital for all of the care they provided to our beloved Beverley. May she rest in peace.
