Beverly Ann Munro (Burr)
August 8, 1952 - May 30, 2019
Our much loved wife, mom, grandmother, sister and friend Beverly (Burr) Munro passed away peacefully May 30, 2019 at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary, AB. In true spirit, she always remained positive in her fight to survive her short diagnosis of leukemia and a bone marrow transplant in November. The relentless complications became overwhelming. Once all her family arrived, she shared all she had to say and let go.
Beverly is survived by Bruce, her loyal husband of twenty five years, two step children Brad (Brandi) Gillis, Carrie (Bernie) Friesen, her three siblings Patty Burr, Wendy (Bill) Holt and Brian Burr, sister-in-law Lynda (Carl) Vera, brother-in-law David Munro, six grandchildren who she adored, Sarah and Courtney GIllis and Chandler, Jillian, Garret and Macy Friesen, her nine nieces and nephews and their families, many cousins, aunts, uncles and friends. She was predeceased by her parents Earl (1977) and Marguerite (2015) Burr, sister-in-law Debbie Burr (1997) and nephew Andrew Burr (1987).
We have learned from Bev to never look in the rearview mirror of life, to always be positive, live in the moment, appreciate the details and care for and embrace those around you.
A memorial service will be held at 2:00 PM June 7, 2019 at Evergreen Funeral Home, in Edmonton. A celebration of life and internment will also be held in Irma, AB on July 19, 2019. Details to follow.
