BEVERLEY BERNICE TYRRELL (BRECKMAN) (published on January 18, 2010)

BEVERLEY BERNICE TYRRELL (BRECKMAN) November 11, 1931 - January 15, 2010 Beverley Bernice Tyrrell went to be with her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in heaven on Friday, January 15, 2010. She was 78. While it's sad to lose a loved one to death, and family and friends should grieve, but it's really a celebration of Beverley's life. For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command. with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. - 1 Thessalonians 4:16. Beverley was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan on November 11, 1931. She moved with her parents and siblings to Geraldton, and later Sault Ste. Marie, both in northern Ontario, before arriving in London, Ont., and finally in Winnipeg in 1978. She married Beverley Victor Tyrrell on April 16, 1966 in London where their four children were born. By that time, she had become known as Mrs. Bev. They divorced in January 1987. She leaves her four children to mourn: Tom, Tim (Isabel), Tammy, and Terry Anderson (John); and seven grandchildren: Daniel, Colin, Sean, Tommy, Christopher, Matthew and Melissa; and two great-grandchildren: Mia and Riley. Mrs. Bev's four sisters will also miss her. They are Sheila Breckman, Donna (Norm) Aitken, Sharon (George) Clemens, all of Ontario, and Phyllis (Dan) McTavish, of Florida. Also mourning are: nieces and nephews, Julia (Wayne) Corbett, Kari Aitken, Jennifer (Bob), Fergus, Steve (Kaleigh) Clemens and Christine (Matt) daCosta, and great-nieces and nephews: Sam Corbett, Sarah and Ian Fergus, Luke and Kaleb Clemens, Ben, Rachel and Abby daCosta. Beverley was predeceased by her parents Halldor and Phyllis Breckman. Mrs. Bev had several hobbies, including five-pin bowling which she excelled at (she won many trophies), knitting, and singing. She sang in the choir at Grant Memorial Baptist Church and performed in the first Living Christmas Tree production at the Winnipeg church in 1983. She was always busy raising her children, so a fulltime job was out of the question. But she did work parttime as a receptionist at a Winnipeg medical facility. She was a switchboard operator at the General Hospital in Sault Ste. Marie. In London, she worked at Gorman and Eckhart and at one time was a licensed practical nurse. Mrs. Bev possessed a servant's heart: always ready and able to help someone in need. Compassion for people was an every-day pleasure for her. The family wishes to thank the staff, doctors and nurses at Grace Hospital, and also staff at Lions Manor where Beverley lived. Funeral service will be held 1:00 p.m. Wednesday, January 20, at Neil Bardal Inc., 3030 Notre Dame Avenue, Winnipeg, MB (across from Brookside Cemetery). Public viewing will take place one hour prior to the service. Pastor Glenn Miller of Grant Memorial Baptist Church will officiate at the service. Donations, in lieu of flowers, can be sent to the Canadian Diabetes Association, 102-310 Broadway, R3C 0S6, and Gideons (Bible Society.) Information can be found in many Winnipeg churches.
