DUNN, Beverly Joan 'Bev' - Our beloved mother, grandmother and friend peacefully passed away at home on July 9, 2017 at the age of 81.
Predeceased by her loving husband of 59 years, James Dunn on December 25, 2016.
She will be greatly missed by her three children, Jim Dunn (Kathleen), Jane Doan (Scott) and Jo-Anne Smith. She will be lovingly remembered by her grandchildren Jimmy (Katie), Courtney (Brandon), Caitlin, Amanda (Brad), Ryan, Owen and Madeline. She was also thrilled and honoured to be a Great Grandmother to Nora and Nicholas (Nico).
Bev was born on January 31, 1936. She grew up in Hamilton, Ontario and lived with her husband Jim in Grimsby, Welland, Chatham and most recently in Fonthill for their retirement years to be close to their children and grandchildren. Bev was a ray of sunshine to everyone she met. She was beautiful inside and out. Her outlook on life was exceptionally positive and she was always there with a listening, caring ear.
Bev was truly devoted to her family and friends and liked nothing better than to share a home cooked meal or a homemade piece of pie. Whenever possible, she would steal time for a cup of tea, a cookie and a good book or crossword puzzle. Our mother and grandmother is irreplaceable in all of our hearts.
Visitation will be from 7:00pm to 9:00pm on Thursday, July 13th at Pleasantview Funeral Home, 2000 Merrittville Highway, Thorold. A Celebration of Bev’s Life will take place in the Pleasantview Chapel on Friday, July 14th at 11:00am with visitation one hour prior. A Reception to follow.
If desired, memorial donations may be made to the One Foundation at Niagara Health System or Niagara Children’s Centre would be appreciated.
