DARLINGTON, Beverley Norma (nee MORRISON) - February 18, 1921 – August 10, 2017
In her 97th year, passed away peacefully at Christie Gardens, well cared for and well loved.
She will be dearly missed by her daughters Peggy Barusta (Larry Sinclair) and Pamela Yemen (Andy), as well as by her beloved nieces, nephews and cousins.
Beverley was predeceased by her husband Gordon (1963), her brother Boyd Morrison (1987) and her cousin Nancy Bell (2015).
Born in Montreal, Beverley grew up in the Town of Mount Royal and lived there until her early senior years.
Beverley met her husband at Canada Cement in Montreal. They came to know one another as each mourned the loss of a loved one due to the war, Beverley, her fiancé and Gordon, his oldest brother. They married in 1945 and raised their family.
After Gordon's untimely death at 42, Beverley carried on, building their dream cottage on Lake L'Achigan in the Laurentians. The cottage was the source of much happiness.
At the age of 60, Beverley moved to Toronto and forged another new life for herself.
Her move to Christie Gardens 11 years ago was fortuitous, as her last years afforded her an exceptionally caring community.
A memorial service will be held at Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Avenue West, at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 28th. A private interment will take place at a later date.
If desired, donations can be made to The Christie Gardens Foundation or a charity close to your heart.
