March 22, 1942 – June 24, 2011
“Grandmas hold our tiny hands for just a while, but they hold our hearts forever”.
Beverley Rose Konopek (nee Deadmarsh) passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Friday, June 24, 2011 at the age of 69 years.
For Mom, life was all about living for her family and her many friends. She will always be remembered by all she touched for her generous spirit, strength and devotion. Her huge heart and compassion for everyone around her brought her the greatest happiness, but being blessed with four grandsons and being able to watch them grow was probably what brought her the most joy. Our Mom was an incredible woman and will stay in our hearts forever!
Bev is survived and will be missed with much love by her husband Wolf of fifty years. She was a loving mother and will be fondly remembered by her daughters, Sherri Konopek and partner Bill Turnbull, and Karen and Chris Sullivan. Grandma is also survived and much loved by her precious grandchildren, Michael Ruddy, Daniel Ruddy, Matthew Sullivan and Jack Sullivan and was often referred to as their “lifeline”. She will be greatly missed by all her family and friends including her brother Butch and wife Karen Deadmarsh, cherished niece and nephew Kerri and Brad Deadmarsh, brother-in-law Leo Boilard and family, and her loving close friend Sharon Lozinski who is like family to all of us.
We love you, Mom … Goodbye for now, we will see you in Heaven.
