Manholt, Beverly Ann

1943 - 2010

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Beverly Ann Manholt on January 30, 2010. She was predeceased by her parents Andrew and Gladys Amundrud of Dawson Creek, B.C. Beverly is survived by her loving husband Tony and her two devoted children Sherrie Manholt and Darwin (Amanda) Manholt. She will forever be “Nana” to her two beloved grandsons Erik and Justin.
Bev was born on September 25th, 1943 in Lloydminster Saskatchewan. Her first few years were spent on the farm in Tangleflags before her family moved to Lloydminster. After her schooling she completed a secretarial course. Bev moved to Dawson Creek where she worked at various secretarial positions. On April 16th, 1966 she married Tony Manholt of Dawson Creek, B.C. and together they raised their family. Over the years Bev excelled in her many interests and hobbies like ceramics, sewing, and macramé, but Bev’s kind and generous spirit are the things her friends and family will remember the most. Whether she was cooking an impromptu turkey dinner for a basement full of boisterous teenagers or brewing a fresh pot of coffee for a visit round the kitchen table Bev always made you feel loved, welcome and special. In 2003 Bev and Tony made the move south to Kamloops to be closer to their grandchildren, the absolute joy of their lives. Bev loved Kamloops and its surrounding lakes which offered countless opportunities for drives and camping trips with the family in the new motor home.
Special thanks to Dr. Waller as well as the staff and volunteers at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home in Kamloops, B.C. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home in Bev’s name. No formal service by request.
