July 17, 1949 – April 15, 2014
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Beverley (Bev) Buchan, beloved wife, mother, grandma, sister, and friend. Bev passed away on April 15, 2014 surrounded by her loving family. A life-long learner and natural teacher, Bev taught in the Regina Catholic School Division for 30+ years before her retirement in 2010. It was then that Bev began her favourite journey of all – that of being a full-time grandma to her four beloved grandchildren: Addey, Maggie, Keeley and Ben. Grandma Bev was a tireless playmate and loved nothing better than to plan activities and "lessons" for her grandkids; watching their young minds grow and expand. Bev's upbringing on the farm near Fillmore, SK cultivated her love of the outdoors and gardening from an early age. She was happiest spending long hours in the yard and garden at home, at the lake or in her kids' yards; and had a talent for nurturing all living things. Never one to sit down for more than a moment at a time, Bev lived life to its fullest. Her love for life shone through in all her passions and hobbies: baking, sewing, curling, gardening, teaching sessionals for the Faculty of Education, Scottish country dancing, hosting get-togethers, playing cards, and travelling with Blair and their wonderful group of friends. Hers was a life of service to others, and Bev enriched the lives of so many people lucky enough to call her family or a friend. Bev is predeceased by her parents, Loretta and Laurence Lebbert, and in-laws Al and Bernice Buchan. Left to treasure her memory are her husband of 41 years, Blair, sons Brad and Greg, and daughters-in-law Kim and Sarah and their families. Bev also leaves behind her younger sister Dorothy (Maurice) Herauf, sister-in- law Barb Seed, nieces Shellee, Kristie, Dawn and Jill, numerous other family members, and countless special friends who will keep her in their hearts forever. Bev was one-of-a- kind; she will be remembered for her incredibly positive and generous spirit and her beautiful, selfless soul. Bev will be sadly missed but lovingly remembered. A Celebration of Bev's Life will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 19, 2014 at Lakeview United Church, 3200 McCallum Avenue, Regina, SK. A family Interment will follow in the summer in Tyvan, SK. In lieu of flowers, donations in Bev's name may be made to the Children's Wish Foundation, Saskatchewan Chapter, http://www.childrenswish.ca/en- sk/, 3602 Millar Avenue, Saskatoon, SK, S7P 0B1.
