Sept. 27, 1919 – Jan. 10, 2015
Surrounded by family and dear friends our beloved Beryl Dalrymple passed away peacefully on Jan. 10, 2015 at Millsite Lodge, 100 Mile House.
Born Sept. 27, 1919 in Vancouver, Beryl is survived by her son Bob, granddaughter Dr. Kate Dalrymple, grandson Bryan Dalrymple, niece Ruth Payne, second cousin Brenda Harvey-Jones, and grandnieces Chloe Miller and Julie Miller. Beryl is predeceased by her husband Ken, her sister Margaret Payne, her mother Ethel Watt, and her father Alex Alexander.
A generous, loving, and kind woman, Beryl will be greatly missed. Her determination and immense love of life led Beryl to live each day to its fullest. She will be fondly remembered for her administrative and business skills, her fabulous baking, accomplished knitting, beautiful singing voice, guitar and accordion playing, love of gardening, devotion to her church, and her sweet hugs and kisses.
In addition to her many enjoyable years working for Woodward’s Department Store, Beryl assisted her son Bob with his store, North Shore Music. She also devoted her time to sharing her Christian values by teaching the Missionettes girls club at the church. When the family moved to the Cariboo in 1974 Beryl fully embraced country life, spending time with friends, family, and her much-loved dogs.
A special thank you to Jan Baker for her compassionate and cheerfully devoted companionship to Beryl and for her gift of hair styling. Heartfelt gratitude to the compassionate Interior Health Home-Support team and to the caring staff at Millsite Lodge.
