Beryl McManus, beloved wife of Patrick, passed away on Saturday, February 24, 2007 at the age of 76 years.
Beryl was born on August 13, 1930 in Nottingham, England. She joined Patrick in Canada when she was 19 years old and they were married October 21, 1950. Beryl loved traveling with Patrick, listening to music, reading, and doing the daily crossword. She was a loving wife and mother and had a great sense of humour.
Besides her husband Patrick, Beryl is survived by her son and daughter-in-law Chris and Barb McManus of Calgary, AB; her daughter and son-in-law Sheila McManus-Oshanek and Barry Oshanek, of Cranbrook, BC; and two grandchildren Sean and Laura McManus. She is also survived by her brother and sister-in-law Chris and Eileen Bancroft, of North Hampton, England; as well as several cousins in England. Beryl was predeceased by her Parents David and Ivy Bancroft.
The family would like to thank the people who made so many meaningful contributions along the difficult path of the last two years. The nurses in the Rockyview and Foothills Hospitals, and the Carewest Sarcee Hospice were knowledgeable and caring beyond belief. The paramedics whom we have seen so often were always gentle and respectful. The family is also grateful to Beryl’s friends who were so helpful and kind.
It was Beryl’s wish that there be no funeral, however, friends of the family are invited to meet at Chris and Barb’s on Saturday, March 3, 2007 between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. to celebrate her life. Please call 239-1765.
