Beverley Audrey Dina Marie Theresa Juneau (nee LeClair)
“Feathers appear when angels are near”
With great sadness we share that Bev passed away peacefully with family by her side on August 15, 2019 at age 76 in Barrie.
She was preceded in 2015 by her beloved soulmate George of over 25 years. It brings us peace to know they have now rejoined on their next great adventure. Former spouse of Michael Juneau(predeceased) of over 25 years.
Born February 23, 1943 in Sault Ste. Marie to Leo and Valma (Catling) LeClair. Dear sister of Herbert(predeceased), Audrey, Doug(Shirley), Valdore(predeceased)(Bev), Brenda(Cliff) and Randall.
Bev was a supportive and loving mother to Annette (Travers) and Darren (Jessica) and an enthusiastic grandmother who will be forever missed by her grandchildren Breanne, Isaac, Emmett, Leyla, Jamie, Michael, Jaxon and Keaton. Her family was her pride and joy.
She was an amazingly strong matriarch who provided support to her family and will also be missed by many nieces and nephews.
In her earlier years, Bev had many hats including being elected as the Reeve of Victoria Harbour and sitting on more committees than can be named. These positions were very gratifying for her as she liked to make a difference and enjoyed building relationships with people. She was always progressing ahead of the times.
She had many careers but defined herself with her work at The Women and Children’s Shelter of Barrie until her retirement in 2016 at age 73, after 30+ years of service. Making many friends and a difference in peoples lives over many years in being a resource pillar of the community.
Bev enjoyed her life in Barrie with a beautiful view that she treasured of Kempenfelt Bay, where she also in the past sat on the condo board and remained actively engaged in supporting.
She had a great love of travel which took her to a number of destinations but her home was Cuba with over 80 returns, where she made so many friends over the years and talked of them often.
Bev had a great sense of humor and the ability to crack a timely joke or share a funny story even in her final days. Bev had many great friends and if you were considered one, you were among the lucky. With Bev, it was always what you see is what you get. She was supportive, always up for a good time and always ready to go to bat for something she believed in. Bev will be missed by all those who knew and loved her, and all those lives she touched or helped along the way.
To honour Bev, start living a good life, hold family and friends close, tell them what they mean to you, take pleasure in the little things and travel often.
A private Celebration of Life will take place at a future date.
