Doris Elizabeth Bevan, beloved wife of the late John Bevan of Calgary, passed away on Tuesday, July 19, 2005 at the age of 75 years.
Doris was born on May 14, 1930 in Dublin, Ireland. She came to Canada in 1956 and married John Richard Bevan a year later. Together they returned to Ireland for a time until coming back to Canada to settle in Calgary. Doris enjoyed knitting and spending time with her family and friends. She was well-loved by all the neighbourhood children and became known as “Grandma Doris”. She had a heart of gold and a compassion for others in everything. She was also an avid supporter of national sports and a great fan of the Calgary Flames and Canadian football. Her Irish heritage was a very important part of her life and she made certain to educate her children in her history.
Doris is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Jackie and Daniel Nast and their children, Mandy, Brittany and Ashley, all of Calgary. She is also survived by several sisters, a brother, in-laws, nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was predeceased by her husband John Bevan.
