Bev died peacefully at Wellesley Central Place, Toronto, on October 31, 2021, after living with frontotemporal dementia for eighteen years.
Born and raised in Toronto, Bev was the daughter of Bernice and Aubrey Marshall. She is survived by her devoted husband of 63 years, John, and their four daughters, Kelly (David), Sandra (Stephen), Lara (Peter), and Joanne (Kerry). Bev was the loving Mumma of Charlie, Virginia and Riley; Charlotte, Calvin and Fiona; and Hannah, Rebecca, and Bridget.
Bev was a creative person and was passionate about the arts. She was a practicing artist for many years and later a yoga teacher. She passed along a strong affinity for the arts to her girls through lessons in piano, dance, art and singing as well as regular visits to the symphony, ballet and museums. Large family gatherings and gardening at the cottage gave her joy and she welcomed people into her home with open arms. Bev was beautiful inside and out and was a free spirit who was ahead of her time.
