June 18, 1967 – December 31, 2020
Beverly has lost her 21 – month long battle with a rare and aggressive form of cancer at the young age of 53.
She passed away peacefully in the Cariboo Memorial Hospital on Dec 31, 2020 at 2.30 pm, with her husband Bruce and daughter Hayley at her side.
Beverly leaves behind her loving husband of 28 years Bruce Thomas, her daughter Hayley and 2 sons Adam and Nathan. Her mother Shirley Pulishe, sisters Debbie, Janice, Kathy, Susan, Joan, Barbara, Brenda and brother George. Her many brothers in law, nieces, nephews, aunt, uncles and dear friends from the Edson, and Edmonton Alberta areas, Williams Lake and Dawson creek BC.
Beverly was born and raised in Edson Alberta where she met her future husband Bruce. The young couple married on Sept 4, 1993 and embarked on their journey of life together. Their twins Adam and Hayley were born in Edson. Life changes and work took the couple to Fort McMurray, where their son Nathan was born, after a few years the family moved on to Williams lake BC.
It was in Williams Lake that Beverly found her career as letter carrier for Canada Post. Beverly enjoyed everything about being a “posty”. She truly cherished the interaction with her customers on her many routes around town and with her friends and co-workers in the office.
Beverly loved the annual family camping trips to Shuswap lake, boating and tubing around, swimming in the lake, lounging on the beach in the sun. A nice ice cream cone after supper at the camp store. Marshmellows over the fire at night. She was an avid golfer and downhill skier, she was musical and artful. A great dancer. Beverly was a lifelong bowler and in the last few years volunteered for YBC organizing and coaching until her illness caused her to retire.
Beverly will be remembered as having a ready and cheerful laugh, as being a true friend, a fierce and loving mother to her 3 children. The best friend, loving wife and soul mate to her husband.
The loss of Beverly will be forever felt in our family. The pain of loss will eventually be replaced with happier memories. Her future grandchildren will be keep warm and cozy under the blankets she has made for them, they will taste the meals prepared from her recipes. Cook with love she always said. Her legacy in life was love and will live on forever in our hearts.
Beverly’s wishes were to be cremated and her ashes spread where her family had created beautiful memories together. In lieu of flower’s please donate to the charity of your choice. A celebration of life will be held in Edson Alberta at a time in the near future when we can all get together again.
Rest in Peace Beverly, we will meet again.
