McCOMB, BEVERLEY CATHERINE GRACEPosted: March 11th, 2015
Beverley was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and passed away peacefully in the presence of her daughter, Marilyn, at Extendicare Cedar’s Villa in Calgary. Beverley enjoyed playing sports and was an avid golfer. Her goal was to golf until she was 80, which she did. She and her late husband Jim, were two of the original members of the Pine Brook Golf and Country Club and golfed there until their move to Medicine Hat in 1995. She was also an avid volunteer, volunteering for several years with the Canadian Cancer Association and community while living in Calgary. After her husband’s death, she stayed in Medicine Hat, enjoying golfing, playing bridge and volunteering with the Optimist Club of Medicine Hat. Two years ago her health deteriorated to the point that her daughter was able to bring her back to Calgary residing at Cedars Villa. She was predeceased by her husband, Jim McComb; her parents, William (Bud) and Hazel Aird; older sister, Verna Koe and twin brother, Russell Aird. She is survived by her daughter, Marilyn Bushell and son-in-law Andrew Bushell; cousin, Morris Lehody (Doris); nieces, Linda Aird (Scott), Linda Cox (the late William), Donna Rankin (Don); nephews the Reverend David Koe (Laura) and John Aird (Jeanette). Marilyn would like to extend her sincere appreciation to the staff of Cedars Villa, especially all those working in the Poplar wing, for the loving care of her mom. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Children’s Optimist Foundation, the Southern Alberta Children’s Hospital or the Canadian Cancer Association.
