My sweet friend Beverley, you will be missed in Pembroke Meadows… You’re the most kind and generous, passionate and patient person I have met in my early days in VB. While biking in the neighborhood, I discovered your wildly interesting backyard, and wanted to meet the amazing gardener right away! So I rang your door, and we became friends instantly. Opening your heart and your house to a stranger with only a shared passion for nature! You led me to the Master Gardener program, and we loved to work together as a team, to share our dreams and develop projects for a more sustainable way of life, and taking care of the nature surrounding us. You loved life in all its forms, and you had such a great faith in the children’s potential … they felt it and loved you back!! I was really looking forward to see you again this summer, and spend inspiring afternoons in your and my backyard .. but still, I am so thankful to have met you and for all those beautiful moments together …
I’m saddened by Beverley’s death, but I’m honored to know her and to share master gardener experiences with her. Rest In Peace, Beverley.
Beverley was a beautiful person with boundless energy and enthusiasm which was so contagious to anyone who worked with her. When she became a Master Gardener in 2015, she was inspired by the program and wanted to participate in as many projects as possible. She participated in so many projects that she completed her internship in record time and continued to actively participate in many projects. She applied what she had learned to beautify and enrich her own garden at home. I worked with Beverley with AV as well as Ready Set Grow. She loved sharing her knowledge of plants, pollinators and more especially in the schools as she loved the student participation. She was also a regular volunteer in Jeff’s elementary school and started a number of projects for the school. She worked tirelessly on the plant sale and at several of our historic projects. She will always be remembered and loved for all that she gave the Master Gardener program but more importantly she will be our guardian angel always overseeing and loving her husband Arnold, as well as daughter Robyn and grandson Jeff but bless everyone who loves to work in all of God’s beautiful gardens and creatures everywhere. Just look to the sky to see Beverley, our very own special angel, always smiling and she will send warm loving hugs with each day, especially when the sun is shining. Beverley, you are truly at peace and can now take the time to “smell” the flowers and watch over all of us. You will be missed for sure. Love and hugs to you and your family.
As the Earth mourns, I know Heaven celebrates. Surrounding Beverly’s family and friends in love. She was an amazing woman with a never ending energy. I was lucky to work with her on many Master Gardener projects. Her love of gardening was contagious. Grateful for knowing her. Rest in love sweet Beverly. You will be missed.
As a fellow master gardener, it was a privilege to have volunteered alongside Beverley, she was so happy to share her knowledge I will miss her energy and kindness.
What a bright star and great mentor in VB Master Gardening. She was so encouraging to me as a ‘newbie’ a few years back and made me live working beside her— so organized and great with children. Blessings surround all of your dear family and friends. I’ll miss her.
I was so saddened to hear of Bev’s passing. She was such an enthusiastic and gifted Master Gardener. Her lovely front garden was a Monarch’s dream come true, and I’ll always think of Bev as I add more butterfly friendly plants in my yard.
Dear Arnold, Beverley was such an amazing person and I’m going to miss her. Please accept my condolences to you and all of those she loved. I know there will be an even more beautiful garden in Heaven because she is there now.
Sending condolences to Arnold, Robyn, and Jeffrey. I have fond memories of the extended family gatherings with all of the aunts, uncles, and cousins that we had growing up, and as adults. I am thinking of all of you.
I am saddened to hear that my high school classmate, Beverley, passed away this past Sunday. She and I met in elementary school (Granby) and were in most of the same classes there. We both graduated from Granby High in 1969. I remember Beverley as friendly, with a quiet determination that didn’t call attention to itself. I wasn’t surprised to learn that she became a master gardener, celebrating the beauty of flowers and nature throughout her life. I spoke with her a few years ago to invite her to our 50-year reunion, but I couldn’t convince her to come. I sure wish she had. I send my sincerest condolences to her husband and children, whom I imagine will always savor the beauty of flowers the way she did.
