May 5, 1937 – February 27, 2021
at the age of 83 years:
On Saturday, February 27th, 2021, Grace Beverley Adams (nee: Stewart) left her earthly home and her soul entered Paradise through Heaven’s gate.
“…away from the body and at home with the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 5:8
Left to celebrate her precious life are her loving husband, Melvin and her children Catherine and James. She is fondly known as Grandma Bev to her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren and as ‘Tante Beouf” to her nieces and nephew.
Beverley was born in Kelowna, BC on May 5, 1937 to Robert and Vera (both deceased) and was raised in Vancouver, BC. She was also predeceased by her beloved sister, Jean; her much-loved son-in-law, Shane; and her dear niece Karen.
She will be fondly remembered for her empathy of others, her infectious laugh, her love of all things Christmas and Hallmark movies (a love carried on by her children), the face she made when she did not like certain foods and her affection for pretty shoes. We all had the pleasure of enjoying her favourite music, such as many Neil Diamond’s songs and Young Love sung by Sonny James.
As young adults her children had the adventure of travelling with her, and later watching her dote on her grandchildren and great-grandchildren as she would soothe them with stories and tickles.
Her family would like to thank her care givers at Hillside Village in Salmon Arm for loving her and accommodating the window visits and phone calls, and for facilitating all our visits as we said our good-byes.
A Celebration of Life will be held later at a date to yet be determined.
