Beverly Grace Grantham

April 17, 1933 - December 20, 2012


Beverly (Bev) Grace Grantham (nee Newcombe), 79, of Kimberley, BC, passed away on Thursday, December 20, 2012.

Mom was born in New Westminster on April 17, 1933 and worked as a telephone operator after graduating from high school.  She later went on to work as a book binder.  Mom loved to go camping; she was the one who taught us how to fish.  She also loved crochet and many kitchens boast of her colourful dish cloths.  Although our brother Jim predeceased her by 31 years, Mom…Gramma…GG… always put the sunshine in the lives of her children, Aileen Boyd (Duff), John Campbell, grandchildren, Tara Hill (Mike), Cheryl Hill, Taryn Boyd, Kathryn Boyd and great grandchildren, Natalia and Merrick.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to the SPCA as Mom always loved the visits to Garden View. Cranbrook branch of the SPCA, 3339 Highways 3 & 95 Cranbrook, BC V1C 4H6, (250) 426-6751.

Thank you to the amazing staff of Garden View, Mom loved living there and it was because of you.

Thank you to the BCAS Paramedics who treated our Mom……just like she was yours.

And thank you to the staff of EKRH for making Mom comfortable in all ways.

If Mom touched your life, she probably called you “Babe” more than once.

Please join us in an informal celebration of her life. Elk’s Hall, 240 Howard Street in Kimberley. Friday, December 28 at 3:30 pm.

Relation: Met at GVV and through her family

I was one of the lucky ones who was called “Babe” on many occassions. Bev and I had some good laughs together and I enjoyed when she made fun of the way I said “2” when calling Bingo. Glad I had the chance to get to know you a little Bev. I have some of the dishcloths in my kitchen and have you in my heart for always. Love Jill
