Born and raised in Huron County, Ontario, Beryl enjoyed her early years there, sharing many happy moments with family and friends. She subsequently spent several years in Whitby, Ontario and in Nova Scotia, enjoying a successful career working for Durham County and the County of Antigonish, before eventually retiring and spending the last decade in Kingston to be close to her son and grandchildren.
A dedicated and loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and aunt (Aunt B), she centred her life around her family, supporting them to the fullest of her abilities. While she took enjoyment and great pride in her career accomplishments, her happiest moments included spending time with her family - and shopping for them.
