Obituary for

Beverly Swan

With heavy hearts and minds full of loving memories, we announce the passing of Beverly Jean Swan (Baldrey). She was born on March 16, 1946, in Penticton, BC to Bill and Helen. She passed away in Kelowna on July 5, 2021, at the age of 75.

Bev was a loving and strong partner, mother, grandmother, wife, auntie, and friend. She was quick to smile and share a laugh. Her good nature hung in notes around her. Bev loved music. Whether listening to it in her daily life or performing with her singing family, music was ever-present. Bev and Gerry also loved to travel, spending winters in sunny Southern California and many trips around the globe.

She will be remembered with love by her partner: Gerry Goodfellow; two children: Mike (Tanya) and Becky (Adriano); her grandchildren: Corbin and Grace; her two brothers: Tom (Pat) and Dave (Lisa); her nieces and nephews: Graham, Russel, Kyla, Jadel and Megan; and her faithful sidekick: Tigger. Bev was predeceased by her husband Bob. Bev will also be remembered by her Sweet Adeline family with whom she spent 50 years singing, touring, competing, and bringing joy.

Bev was loved deeply and loved deeply in return. She will forever be in our hearts.
A memorial for Bev will be held on July 29 at Sun-Oka Beach in Summerland at 4:00pm.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you donate to the Alzheimer's Society of Canada or your local dog rescue.
