Berwyn Kelsay passed away peacefully on Wednesday, October 18, 2006 at the age of 70 years.
Berwyn is fondly remembered for her sweet smile, unfailing grace and her ability to touch the hearts of others. She was born in El Paso, Texas and raised in Anthony, New Mexico, where she grew up with her husband Bill. After graduating from the University of New Mexico, with a degree in education, Berwyn moved with Bill to Canada in 1961.
