An alumna of York Memorial Collegiate 1958, The Hospital for Sick Children School of Nursing 1962, and U. of T Nursing Administration 1964. Her professional career contrasted with a ‘laid back lifestyle’ shared with beloved husband and soulmate Ron Beecher. Bev will be sadly missed by all who entered her world. Classmates’ tributes pour in: a unique and loving individual, an amazing spirit, a trooper as she struggled with 20 years of illness. Bev enjoyed raising Ron’s little girl and adored their grandchildren. She loved the sun on her face, jazz and folk music, a good book and a glass of wine
to dance, sing, ski, sail or paddle on a quiet northern lake or hike a forested trail. Her paintings and photography reflected a free spirit. …  www.glendalememorial.com
