It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Beverley Anne (Goudge) Hardie, of Exeter, on Wednesday, May 11, 2022, at the age of 81.
Bev battled for months following complications from surgery.
She is survived by her loving husband George, son Gord (Melanie), her grandsons Tyler, Evan and Logan, brother Brian (Marion) Goudge and sister Thirza (the late Michael) Gonsalves, and by seven nieces and nephews.
Preceased by her parents Edward Goudge and Frances Goudge (Chard), her sister Louise and brother-in-law Floyd Woods.
Bev was endlessly supportive and proud of her family, lending a hand wherever possible and attending countless track and field days, soccer and hockey games and proudly cheering her grandsons on. She lived to help others – whether it was family, neighbours, friends or complete strangers – Bev was willing to pitch in. Bev served her community as a Deaconess and Elder at the various churches she was a member of over the years. A knitter, crocheter and quilter all her life, Bev revelled in learning to do new things, and didn’t give up until she mastered the technique. In later years, she passed this knowledge on to a new generation by teaching quilting classes. Bev was a huge Blue Jays fan – from attending opening day of the inaugural season in 1977 to the last game Bev attended with her son Gord in 2019 – she always hung in there with the boys in Blue.
A private family ceremony was held at Exeter Cemetery on Monday, May 16, 2022, followed by internment.
In lieu of flowers, the family would ask you to consider donations in her memory to one of these organizations, which have all impacted her family: Heart and Stroke, CNIB or The Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. Condolences may be forwarded online through www.haskettfh.com.
