After a long hard battle, on Tuesday October 10, 2023, Beverly Ann Bok (Ashton) passed away at the Brandon Regional Health Centre.

Beverly was born in Carman, MB, on March 11, 1956 to Colin and Agnes Marie Ashton. Bev then moved with her family to Virden, MB, in 1959 after the passing of her father Colin Ashton. Bev did her early years of school in Virden until 1971 when her family moved to Brandon, MB. Bev completed high school at Neelin High School and helped her parents run the Sunset Motel. Bev took her Laboratory Technologist training at Red River College in Winnipeg, graduating in June 1976. Bev married Mark Bok on August 28, 1976 and together they built their family home South of Brandon. Bev and Mark were blessed with three children: Connie, Kerilee and Michael. Bev worked for 33 years as a Medical Laboratory Technologist in Microbiology at Westman Regional Laboratory. She retired in 2009 and enjoyed the property Mark and Bev developed over the years. She spent many hours in her gardens enjoying the flowers and vegetables she grew. Bev was always there for her family, playing the piano or reading her favorite books. Bev was overjoyed to be promoted to Grandma in 2022 with the birth of her first granddaughter.

Bev is survived by her husband Mark Bok, children Connie Bok, Kerilee (Scott) Phillips and Michael (Janelle) Bok, granddaughter Maya Bok; sister Barb (Dave) Cunningham, brother Ivan Ashton, brother-in-law Neil (Lil) Bok and many nieces and nephews.

Bev was predeceased by her father Colin Ashton, step-father Albert Judd, mother Agnes Marie Judd, brother Ron Ashton and sister-in-law Heather Ashton.

The Celebration of Bev’s Life will take place at Memories Chapel, 330-18th St North, Brandon, MB, on Friday, October 20, 2023, at 1:00 p.m. with a reception to follow. Bev will be laid to rest at the Brandon Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donation in memory of Bev may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 415-1st Street, Brandon, MB R7A 2W8.
