HEAD, Beverly Joan
July 30th, 1934 – August 4th, 2017
Beverly Joan Head (Casselman) died peacefully, surrounded
by her loving family on August 4th, 2017 at Rockyview
General Hospital. Beverly was born on July 30, 1934 in
Winnipeg, Manitoba. She attended City Park Collegiate
in Saskatoon, and completed her nursing training at the
Regina General Hospital. During her early nursing days in
Regina, she met and married her loving life partner, Robert
(Bob) Head. They celebrated 59 years of marriage on
May 24th. As a devoted wife, mother, relative, and friend,
Beverly also continued her nursing career throughout
numerous moves as she followed Bob's RCMP transfers
across Canada. She worked as a nurse in Saskatoon,
Smithers, Prince Rupert, Ottawa, Regina, North Battleford,
and Yellowknife. Beverly also enjoyed teaching Indigenous
nursing assistant students in Yellowknife before her
retirement from nursing. In addition to her parents,
Beverly is predeceased by her daughter, Lorelee, and her
brother, Brian. Left to mourn her loss is her husband Bob,
her sons Timothy and Barry, her daughters Laurene and
Robyn, and son in law, Robert; eleven grandchildren: Tristyn,
Victoria, Mahlon, Max, Madison, Milan, Jesse, Gabrielle,
Elias, Braden and Allison; sister Bernice; sister-in-law Betty, and
brother-in-law Wally; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Beverly made
deep and lasting friendships with many special people, who are also grieving
her loss. Beverly will be most profoundly remembered as a faithful wife, a loving
mother, and a gracious friend. Her dedication to Bob's career was recognized
in 2013 when she was presented with the prestigious Second Man Award
by the Commissioner of the RCMP for her steadfast and loyal support of the
RCMP and its members. Heartfelt thanks are sent to all of the dedicated staff at
Bethany Care, in Cochrane, where Beverly received outstanding care, as well as
the compassionate palliative care that she and family received from the doctors
and nurses at the Rockyview General Hospital. Beverly's family and friends find
comfort in knowing she will no longer live with the challenges of Parkinson's
disease, which she faced with grace and strength for 22 years.
A Celebration of Life will be held Friday August 18th, 2 pm at the Bow Valley
Baptist Church, 54 W Aarsby Road, Cochrane, Alberta. Reverend D.K. Hale presiding.
In lieu of flowers, a contribution may be made in Beverly Head's name to
