Grandmother to Cara Marie June Hanna and daughter to Joan Lappan and the late Zeke (Clarence) Lappan. Bev was a Registered Nurse for 33 years at Kingston General Hospital working in the ICU. She loved spending time at the family cottage, in Myrtle Beach and numerous hours with her adored granddaughter Cara. Bev loved her dogs like she loved her kids; Chu Chu, Tippy and Yogi.

Predeceased by sister in law Susan Greenlees (Gary), nephew Adam Thompson and Parents in law Gerry and Hilda Thompson. Bev will be loved and missed by so many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
