May 2, 1919 – October 21, 2012
It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of our beloved mother and grandmother, Beryl Bruerton, who passed away on Sunday, October 21, 2012 at the Foothills Medical Centre at the age of 93.
Beryl was born and raised in Calgary. She loved to travel and a childhood dream was to visit Venice, Italy. She accomplished this several times.
Beryl was a courageous person who despite many illnesses always retained a positive attitude. She willingly helped people and one of her greatest acts of caring was the six years she and Eric babysat their grandson thereby enabling Sherile to continue working with the full knowledge that Michael was receiving the best of care.
Beryl is survived by her daughters Elizabeth Bruerton and Sherile (Ed) Reilly, and grandson Michael Reilly; plus dear friends and family including Linda Cannon, the McNarland family, Joy (Al) Grant, Pat Nichols and Clint (Jeannie) Morden.
She was predeceased by her husband Eric George Bruerton in 1998 and her cousin George Nichols in 2010.
Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Wednesday, October 31, 2012 at 2:30 p.m. Graveside Service to follow at Burnsland Cemetery.
