CUTLER, Beverley Joan
July 14, 1950 – December 1, 2015
With heavy hearts we announce the passing of our precious Bev at Peace Arch Hospice, White Rock, BC, after a valiant struggle with cancer. She is sadly missed by her husband Nigel, sons Geoff and Jeremy, her sister Margot (Ian) and brother Graeme (Margaret) in Australia, her in-laws Paul, Kevin (Marina), and Roy in BC, and a very long list of close Aussie relatives, as well as lifelong friends, locally and abroad. Bev was predeceased by her parents George and Marjorie Bourne.
Hailing from Perth, Australia, Bev caught the travel bug early, moving to London for a few years, and then to Toronto in the mid ’70s where she began her career in the airline industry with CP Air. In 1980, she moved to Vancouver to join British Airways. She enjoyed many fond memories, travel, and friendship from her years with BA.
Bev met Nigel in 1982 and by 1988 was married with two sons. In the mid ’90s, the family moved to the Semiahmoo Peninsula where Bev created more lasting friendships. She was very active in her boys’ lives, being their biggest supporter and loudest fan at their baseball, basketball, and rugby games. She will be remembered for her amazing culinary skills, an awesome sense of humour, a love of travel, a keen sense of fashion and flair, a feisty spirit, and that sparkle in her eyes that lit up any room. Bev will be forever loved for her steadfast dedication to family, her unwavering strength and courage, and her readiness to help those less fortunate. She will be sorely missed, and forever in our hearts.
A Memorial Service will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, January 16, 2016 at Victory Memorial Park, 14831 28th Ave, Surrey, BC.
