Bev Fischer, 78, of Nanaimo, BC, passed away in her home at Nanaimo Seniors Village on Friday, July 24th, 2015.
Bev was born in 1937 in Hamiota, Manitoba. Her family moved to Vancouver where Bev lived until she met her future husband, Al Fischer, who was in the Royal Canadian Air Force. They were married in Vancouver, and they enjoyed the next 25 years together living in many places including Canada, the United States and Germany. They settled in Nanaimo where the family stayed.
Bev had a career in banking and worked for the Bank of Montreal for the next 25 years. She retired as a branch manager and enjoyed many years “snowbirding” to Arizona.
She is survived by her husband of 60 years, Al Fischer; her children, Deborah, Robert and Patricia; siblings, Lorraine, Raymond and Patrick; grandchildren, Matthew (Nadia), Glen (Donna) and Jennifer (Craig); great grandchildren, Hunter and Everleigh and many nieces and nephews.
The family is deeply grateful for the excellent care Bev received from all of the employees of Nanaimo Senior’s Village for the five years she was there, and especially for the care received in her last days. Thank you…
In lieu of flowers, donations in Bev’s name to The Kidney Foundation of Canada would be appreciated.
At Bev’s request, there will be no service; however the family will have a special gathering soon to celebrate her life.
“Mom…our hearts ache because you are gone.
We love you and will always miss you…but we do find some comfort in knowing you are no longer suffering…”
