Beverly Ann Long

July 29, 1943 - June 29, 2017


It is with great sadness that the family of Beverly Ann Long (nee Doxsee) announces her passing. Daughter of the late Fred and Edith Doxsee, Bev was born in Queen Charlotte City, on July 29, 1943, and passed away on June 29, 2017, with her family by her side.

At the age of 14, Bev settled with her family in Powell River, and it was in Powell River that she married, and lived a fulfilling and active life with her four children.  Bev was a devoted and loving mother, and she had great pride in her family.

Bev worked for many years in the family business, City Transfer, until her retirement. She thoroughly enjoyed crafting and spent countless hours over the years quilting, doing needle point, knitting and painting, and she also loved to spend time gardening, and going on weekly lunch and coffee dates with her close friends.

Bev is survived by her daughters, Brenda (Kelly) Gilday of Port Alberni, Kathleen (Alan) Zaalberg of Victoria, and sons; Phil (Cheryl) Long and Craig (Kim) Long of Powell River; fifteen grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren; her brother, Bill Doxsee, and his partner Sandra; and her fur babies, Heidi and Keisha.  Bev also leaves behind numerous loving relatives and friends.

Bev was predeceased by the father of her children and lifelong friend, Harold; and by her brother, Larry Doxsee.

The family would like to thank all those people for the loving care Bev received over the past 15 months. Dr. Glick and staff of Nanaimo General Hospital in the Nephrology Department, Tom and Colleen Zeeman of Black Forest Residential Care, and Powell River General Hospital 4th Floor, ICU nurses, and ECU nurses.

There will be a service on July 8, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. at Stubberfield Funeral Home, 7221 Duncan Street, Powell River, B.C.
