Beverly Ann Waller
Beverly Ann Waller, aged 73 years of Drinkwater, SK passed away peacefully on Thursday, February 14th, 2019 after a long fight with Alzheimer’s disease. She was born on August 24th, 1945 to Gordon and Anne Williams. Bev will be sorely missed and is survived by her husband, Ken Waller; children: Kim (Kevin) Gulka, Kris (Wendy) Waller, and Stacey (Aaron) Gamble; grandchildren: Krista, Dayna, Naomi, Morgan, Sydney, and Kaleb; brother, Daryl Williams; sisters: Sandra (Gord) Miller, Karen (Emerson) Koch, Kathy (Jack) Gadd, and Terry (Stu) Gadd; as well as many nieces and nephews. Bev was raised on a farm near Bayard, SK and graduated from Briercrest High School. She married Ken in April 1967 and settled into their forever home on a farm just outside of Drinkwater, SK. She was a busy lady with an active hand in farming, raised 3 great kids, played baseball (coached by her mom Anne Williams), and gardening…using her 3 kids as slave labour. In 1984, Bev started working in the kitchen at St Anthony’s Home and later moved over to Providence Place, retiring in 2008, never to see that place again!! Little did she know as Alzheimer’s took her deeper into confusion, she returned to Providence Place, but as a resident this time, after a knee replacement caused the illness to take a much stronger hold. Special thanks to the wonderful staff at Providence Place where friends and acquaintances continued to care for Bev during her remaining years. The Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, February 23rd, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. in Moose Jaw Funeral Home. Chery Thul will officiate and interment will take place in Drinkwater Cemetery at a later date.
