July 3, 1930 – April 22, 2013
Beverley McLaren of Calgary, beloved wife of the late Robert (Bob), passed away unexpectedly on Monday, April 22, 2013 at the age of 82 years.
Beverley had a long career at the Bank of Montreal. After her retirement, she did allow that her ambition was to be a truck driver “when she grew up”. An avid golfer, voracious reader, and master of crossword puzzles, she also loved to garden and travel. Her declining health prevented her from enjoying many of her passions in later years, but she still had a keen sense of humour, and kept a positive outlook on life.
Beverley is survived by her sister Grace Crowell (the late Douglas); nieces, Andrea Giffin, Jo-Ann Dawson, and Heather Crowell; grand-nieces and nephew, Megan Argue (Trevor), Tricia and Sarah Giffin and Elizabeth and Christopher Dawson, and a great-grandnephew Theodore Argue. She was predeceased by her niece Diana Campbell.
Many thanks to Borris Boyenko and Janet and John MacLeod for their support and friendship, during Beverley’s last few months.
