Obituary for Beverly Ann "Bev" Morris (Burbank)

Morris (nee Burbank),
Beverly Ann
Of Knowlton, Quebec, passed away peacefully on June 10, 2023, at the age of 86.
Survived by her four children: Duane (Kim) of Ottawa and children: Justin and Brianna, Hope, Rebecca and Colton. Jackie of Toronto and her two sons: Jamie and Alex. Don (Veronica) of Calgary and their two children: Daniel and Benjamin. David of Calgary and his two children: Jonah and Chelsea. Also survived by her brother Craig and her two sisters-in-law: Susan and Gay; as well as her many nieces, nephews and cousins. Beverly was pre-deceased by her parents Olive and Clyde Burbank and two of her brothers: Ross and Wayne.
Growing up on a farm in the Eastern Townships in Quebec, Bev later moved to Montreal at the age of 16 with the encouragement of her mother. After her marriage to Brian Morris, they soon settled in Elm Park (D.D.O) where she lived in the same house for 55 years and made many life-long friends in the neighbourhood. At the age of 43, she went back to work in the accounting industry for the next 22 years. A lifelong learner, she was a voracious reader and an avid bridge player where she was a sought after player.
Never one to sit around and was always there for others, Bev spent countless hours volunteering. Family was everything to Bev and she left this world with dignity and grace, always thinking of others until the very end.
Donations in her memory can be made to charities that were close to her heart: Cystic Fibrosis Canada or your local Meals on Wheels. A baker with a sweet tooth, she would also have appreciated you making your favourite dessert and sharing it with family and friends in her memory.
There will be a Celebration of Life in her memory at Voluntas Funeral Home (4695, boul. St-Jean, Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Qc H9H 2A7 (attached to St. Genevieve Church) on Saturday, September 16 between 1pm – 4pm.
