Wilson, Beverley Jean

Beverley Jean Wilson (nee Stamp) passed away peacefully on February 19, 2023, with her loved ones by her side after a short but courageous battle with cancer at the age of 71.

Bev was born on December 13, 1951 in Brandon to Nellie and Jimmie Stamp, the youngest of the three Stamp girls. She would grow up on the family farm in Carroll which Bev would talk about with her children and grandchildren for many years to come. Bev attended school in Carroll until Grade 9 before moving on to Souris Collegiate where she would first meet her future husband, Bob. After graduation Bev attended Red River College in Winnipeg and completed her Laboratory Technologist degree. It was then Bob and Bev would move to Brandon and marry in 1972. Later followed the births of their children; Bryce (1975), Brett (1977) and Brooke (1980). Family was everything to Bev and she took great pride in her children, always attending any and all activities. Bev always put family first, no favour or request was ever too big. As a family of five they enjoyed many vacations as far as BC, South Dakota, Florida and California. Bev loved becoming a Granma, and later Great Granma, and was always the first to show pictures of the newest additions to the family. Bev was very proud of her family and they always remained her top priority, spending as much time as possible with them all.

In 1995, Bob and Bev purchased what became “their happy place”, their cabin at Clear Lake. It was there they enjoyed many days and nights with family, friends and neighbours. Whether it be relaxing at the cabin or enjoying time out on the pontoon boat. Bev always looked forward to the opening of the cabin and took great pride in ensuring it was ready for the rest of the family to enjoy for the summer season.

After retiring in 2004, Bev and Bob enjoyed travelling to BC, spending time at Clear lake in the summers and spending part of the winter months in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; unfortunately due to COVID and her recent diagnosis with cancer in December of 2022, her last trip to Mexico would be in 2020. Bev looked forward months in advance to their next trip to Mexico, practicing her Spanish daily and making many lists of what to pack. She enjoyed her time with friends and family in Puerto Vallarta and loved having visitors stay with them so she could show them what soon became another “home” for them. Puerto Vallarta will always hold many fond memories.

Bev will be lovingly remembered and dearly missed by her husband of 50 years, Robert “Bob” Wilson; sons Bryce (Johnna) Wilson and Brett (Mandy) Wilson; daughter Brooke (Tiki) Morantes; grandchildren Madison (Christian; great grandchildren: Lennon & Poppy), Burke, Dante & Camdyn Wilson, Aiden & Ty Wilson and Mya & Matteo Morantes; sisters Pauline (Russ) Carefoot and Ellen (Larry) Decock; sister in laws Pat Scott and Janet Phillips and her many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents Ellen “Nellie” and Wilfred “Jimmie” Stamp; parents-in-law Mabel and Melville Wilson; niece Krista Toews (Carefoot); brother in law Bill Phillips; and many special aunts and uncles.

In keeping with Bev’s wishes, a private graveside service took place at the Rosewood Memorial Gardens on June 3, 2023.

The family would like to extend thank you’s for Bevs excellent care during her short battle to: Dr Caplan, Dr Hunter, Dr Anderson & Dr Connelly; the nurses and staff at both the WMCC and the Palliative care ward in Assiniboine Centre.

The family would like to extend thanks to Joe Ball for the support he not only gave Bev during her illness but to the entire family and his officiating at the graveside service. Thank you also to Dexter and Val of Kowalchuk’s Funeral Home for their support and compassion during funeral service arrangements.

Donations in memory of Bev may be made to the Brandon Regional Health Centre Foundation (Western Manitoba Cancer Centre), 150 McTavish Avenue East, Brandon, MB, R7A 2B3 or to the charity of your choice.
