Beverley (known affectionately as Bobbie) passed away peacefully surrounded by family on February 20, 2023, at the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence. She was the much-loved daughter of the late Robert Smith and Doris Lea and the loving wife of the late Michael Carley. She will be deeply missed by her children Susan (James Thorne) and Michael John (Jessica Parish) and her grandchildren, Carley and Catie Thorne. She was a loving sister to Wally Smith (Kathy De Laurentis Smith and Olivia Smith). Her loving presence and quick wit will be missed by her many nieces and nephews and all the members of the Carley and Condie families. As well as the Malek’s who became her chosen family over the years.
Beverley spent over 50 years married to Michael Carley. They laughed often, enjoyed time with family and friends, and were true partners in their many endeavours throughout the years.
Beverley expressed her creativity throughout her life by painting, refinishing furniture, and creating many exquisite gardens full of roses. She regularly brought friends and family together to celebrate with her amazing meals. In the last 23 years she thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren Carley and Catie and created memories that they will cherish forever.
She was a woman of action. If she found out you needed something she made it happen whether that was homemade soup, or physically being there to lend an ear or hand as needed.
Her family would like to thank the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence for taking such good care of her.
A celebration of her life will be held at Voluntas Funeral Home, 4695 St-Jean Blvd., Dollard des Ormeaux, on Sunday, March 5, 2023, at 1:00 pm with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence would be greatly appreciated.
