Beverly Ware Reber
August 25, 1922 – October 19, 2016
With great sadness, we announce Bev’s sudden passing on Wednesday, October 19th at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. Bev was born in Barons, Alberta to Marjorie and Arthur Roberts. She married Roy Reber in 1944 and in September of 2016 they celebrated their 72nd wedding anniversary.
Bev spent many wonderful years in the Yukon where she was very involved in the community and sports. She represented the Yukon in ladies curling. Bev was the one always called upon to entertain, sing and play the piano.
After moving to Qualicum Beach in 1987, she enjoyed playing golf, bridge, and making many new friends. Bev will be fondly remembered for her kindness and compassion for others and for always being positive and upbeat. She treasured her family and friends.
Bev is survived by her husband, Roy; daughter, Jude (Dave) Layzell of Whitehorse; granddaughter, Kelly (Shawne) Dewdney of Whitehorse; great grandchildren, Dustin Dewdney of Calgary, Kayla Dewdney of Whitehorse; great-great granddaughter, Aria Dewdney; as well as nieces, a nephew and many extended family and friends.
Bev will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. We will keep her forever in our hearts.
In keeping with Bev’s wishes, there will be no service. The family would like to express their sincere thanks to the many friends and neighbours for their kindness and support at this difficult time.
