She is predeceased by her parents, John and Jean Darnell, in-laws Carl (Evelyn) Lee, son Kevin and brother Paul Darnell.
She was a loving wife and cherished best friend to Harold, her smile infectious, her warmth genuine, her hugs lasting. She never let anyone sit alone or feel anything but welcome. She loved her dogs and music, always singing along to the radio or music players and had a genuine passion of making crafts.
Bev was a dedicated worker in whichever role she held. Her bubbling personality was a highlight in her coworkers days. She started working at Victoria and Grey Trust as a bank teller, where she met her husband. Soon after, she was a floater at the Guelph Police and worked her way up to Executive Secretary for the Deputy Chiefs. She stayed at home raising her children for a few years, then ventured back into the workforce as secretary at Semex Alliance and later into the graphics department and doing webpage design. Following this, Bev did clerical worked at City of Guelph in Engineering, Environment and Transportation, payroll at Operations Department until she retired at 65. She was kind, thoughtful, and generous in nature; “Live Laugh Love” being her motto. Bev’s memory will be cherished by her friends and family.
