Beverly Krezonski

July 26, 1950 ~ July 27, 2018 (age 68)

It is with great heartache that the family of Beverly Krezonski, announces the passing of a dear mother, grandmother, wife, sister and aunt at the age of 68.  She passed away peacefully in her home with family by her side on Friday, July 27, 2018.  She was born in Nipigon, Ontario to the late George and Helen Berube on July 26, 1950.


Bev had a tough start and was unable to finish high school as her mother became very sick and passed when she was only 14 years old and not too soon after, her father passed also.  She became a mother at a young age.  Bev brought the family to Nanaimo, B.C. in 1980, to give us all an opportunity to grow, see new places and have more opportunities in life. She was an amazing woman and one of the bravest I have ever known.  She was determined to get her grade 12 and did at Malaspina College during the 1980’s.  She then went into Office Administration and graduated with honors, so she got to greet Queen Elizabeth on her visit to the campus in Nanaimo, in 1983.


Christmas was her favorite time of year, as we would all come together and make perogies and cabbage rolls for our gathering with our family and friends to eat, drink, sing and share that day together.  Mom loved to sing many songs; Patsy Cline, Crystal Gale and many more.  She started singing in the choir around 1961 and she kept it close to her heart.  Music was a huge part of our lives growing up as dad was in a band; where he played the drums and sang.  On several occasions there were microphones, shakers, tambourines and a pot or drum for dad and special people around to join in the fun.


She always welcomed our friends, like they were family. She was my best friend and confidante.  She encouraged me to make the best of everything and face problems head on.  Mom, thank you for all you've given me and the love we shared during your precious time here on earth.  I love you so much mom and will miss you, until we meet again.


Bev was active with different groups in the community like; Toastmasters, Telephone Visiting Ministry, Holistic healing and baseball teams.  Bev was a dedicated sports fan and attended several curling, hockey and baseball events over the years.  Mom shared her love of sports with her grandson, Quentin and spent countless hours teaching and sharing her wisdom with him and to this day, Quentin loves his baseball and most other sports.


Bev and Nick were well known to do a jive better than most and continued to live and love life as long as they could together.  Bev was diagnosed with MS in 1991 and did all she could to keep it at bay until about 8 years ago, when she was unable to walk.  With the immense love of her husband Nick and family and friends, she fought with all her might. She bravely traveled to Costa Rica with daughter Carrie to get the Liberation Technique; but it only gave her a few months of reprieve. 


Bev will be forever remembered by her husband, Nicholas, their children Sharon (David) and Carrie (Blair) and their precious grandson, Quentin.  Bev is predeceased by her brother Donny (Gwen).  She is survived by her husband of 50 years as well as her brother Grant (Joyce) of Alberta, in-law's Lester (Nanette) and Penny (Jimmy) of Red Rock, Danny (Cindy) of Thunder Bay and the numerous cousins, extended family and dear friends. 


On September 21, 1968 she was married to Nicholas Krezonski, who was her main caregiver for the last 10 years.  Thank you dad and to all the angels that played a role in moms last few years here.  Thank you Patti, Nicole and Cheryl for giving so much love and compassion to my mom and dad over the years; you are true angels!  Beverly will be sadly missed by all those lives she touched.  According to Beverly's wishes, cremation has taken place.  Donations in Beverly's memory can be made to the Hospice Society and would be greatly appreciated. 


She would like you to know that her work here has been done and her new position, takes her to a wonderful place where she will be socializing, dancing, gardening and singing to her heart's content.  She now watches over us and her love will never leave our hearts.


A Celebration of Life will take place in 2019 and will be announced at a later date.
