GILL (née Mayhew), Beverly
October 17, 2023

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Mrs. Beverly J. Mayhew on Oct 17, 2023. She passed away peacefully in the early morning at the age of 93 at the Ste. Anne’s hospital in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, QC.


She will be remembered and missed by her three boys, Richard (Angela), Gary (Colleen) and Andy (Anne), her seven grandchildren, and her sister Billie Diane Avery. She is predeceased by her parents William Arthur Mayhew and Lillas Grace Sayer, and her husband Donald W. Gill.


Bev was an avid curler who also enjoyed lawn bowling, golf and many other activities. Tea days and bridge with the ladies were regular events. She was a creative and artistic person who could paint, do needle work, and craft. She enjoyed traveling with her friends and sister. She could always be counted on to whip up a quick meal when someone would stop by, or to help out at a moment’s notice. She was a social person who enjoyed laughing and having a good time. She was a good listener and an even better talker!


The family wishes to express a sincere appreciation and thank you for the care provided by the incredible staff at the Ste. Anne’s hospital where she spent her last four years. They brought a smile to her face every day.


Beverly will be laid to rest with her parents at the Little White Church Cemetery in Russeltown Flats, QC.

    So sorry to hear of Bev’s passing. Was always very happy to have a talk with her at the cottage and hear how active she was keeping and to reminisce of earlier times. Even though we hadn’t seen her in a while, every summer we would catch up on how she was doing. The cottage was always important for her as for us. Her personality really shines through her picture. Sincere condoleances to the family.

    So very sorry to hear about Aunt Bev’s passing. Doug and I have amazing memories of her at the cottage with mom and dad. I’ll never forget her kindness after mom passed away. Great food and laughter was always had. I always remember her calling for Charlotte the cat and to this day I have a chuckle when I hear my neighbour calling for their cats. Doug and I are sending our deepest condolences to all of you and your families.
