HEAVEN, Beverly Olive

March 30, 1951 – August 29, 2019

With very heavy hearts we announce the passing of our Beverly, the rock in our family, at age 68 from Brain Aneurysm surgery. Another angel bound for Heaven.

Bev is survived by her husband of 47 years, David, loving mother to daughters Katie (Darren) Heaven, Crystal (Ben) MacDonald and son James Heaven. Also Bev’s rock solid mom Phyllis Howe and Brother Errol (Marsha) Reed and those grandkidders who loved gramma to bits; Riley, Alexis, Tomas, Ethan, Isabelle and Sophia. Bev was predeceased by her dad Thomas Howe in 2013.

Bev was still actively involved in farming with Dave on their farm in Shepard and area. Bev was a very accomplished piano teacher, a fussy home keeper and gardener who we are sure will keep heaven green forever. A very very thoughtful person.

At Bev’s request no services will be held.

Arrangements entrusted to Cochrane Country Funeral Home, Lawrence (Larry) Slywka, Funeral Director. Ph: 403-932-1039.

    I am very sorry to hear of your loss. I was so fortunate that at 19 years old,in my first office working experience, I met Bev at Galleli Construction. She was the model of professional and hard-working. More important to me, she was a friend. My future husband and I were so pleased to attend the wedding of Bev and Dave. I have no doubt that her life was exemplary and I am just sorry that our paths diverged. My hope is that your happy memories soon drown the sorrow you must be feeling.
