It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved mother and grandmother Beryl Alberta Shannon at Bastion Place.  She is now with her loving husband of 67 years Melvin (Red) and two beloved sons Merle and Jim.  Beryl will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Joyce (Tony) Hack, her granddaughters Tara (Kelvin) Stelter and Aubrey Shannon, her great grandchildren Rylan, Mersaya,  Kenzie, Donovan and Layne Stelter.

Beryl was born in Foremost, Alberta, moved to BC in 1956 and retired in Sorrento, BC where she and Red happily lived for 34 years.  She spent the last three years at Bastion Place.  She was an amazing, strong, beautiful woman who loved and lived life to the fullest.  She loved going on her gambling trips, traveling the world, dancing, crocheting and spending her time with her family and dear friends.  We want to extend a huge thank you to Dr. Goldberg and the staff at Bastion Place.

A celebration of Beryl’s life will be held at St. Mary’s Anglican/United Church in Sorrento, BC on August 20, 2012 at 1:30 p.m.  A reception will follow at O.A.P.O. in Sorrento.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the BC Children’s Hospital in Mersaya Stelter’s name.
