Beverley also leaves behind her beloved rescue cat, Sammy. Beverley was a 5th generation Bayfield resident, tracing her roots back to Christopher Johnson, one of the original settlers. Although born in Toronto, she moved to her Mother’s home when she was 6 years old, upon the death of her father. While growing up in Bayfield she met the love of her life, Jack. They spent many days dancing at the Pavilion or relaxing on the Howard Street beach which she loved so much. Beverley achieved her teaching credentials and took her first job at 18, in a one room school house in Biddulf County. After her marriage, Jack’s job as a geologist took them all over Canada where they raised their three children and created lifelong friendships. In 1976 they settled into their newly built home in Bayfield. Jack and Beverley spent many happy years travelling the world, enjoying their grandchildren and then great grandchildren and participating in Bayfield life. Beverley was well known at the bridge table, one of her favorite pastimes. In 2011, Beverley celebrated 60 amazing years of marriage with Jack, surrounded by a multitude of friends and family. Friends will be received at the Falconer Funeral Homes 153 High St., Clinton, on Saturday January 12, 2018 from 2-4 p.m. A funeral is scheduled for January 13 at 2:00 pm at Trinity Anglican Church in Bayfield with a reception to follow in the parish hall. Wayne Malott will officiate at the ceremony. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Beverley’s life.
