  1. What a beautiful and moving service for Beverley. Thank you, Caroline, Mark and Liz for sharing so much of your mother’s life with us. I was sorry to not be able to attend in person but have been so grateful for the chance to watch the service online today.

    Beverley and Glenn were a vibrant and integral part of the lives of my parents, Ian and Elaine Sutherland, for so many years. They brought up their families together, shared countless holidays, New Year’s Eves, trips to the races, barbeques, birthday celebrations, schools runs, games of bridge, election eves – no important family gathering would be complete without Bev and Glenn’s presence. They were constant, loyal friends, with so many shared interests, values and common threads in their approach to life. Love of family was probably the strongest of all the values they shared.

    I remember so much laughter and good conversations whenever our parents got together and how much time my younger sisters Marg and Julie spent ‘around at the Waldrons’. Mum has always referred to Bev as her best friend, and I know that memories of their shared lives mean so much to her – constantly in and out of each other’s homes, nurturing their children (and husbands) in their parallel lives.

    I will always remember your mother as a warm, accepting, practical, energetic and deeply caring woman, whose love of family and friends were the bedrock of her life. Ian and I feel grateful to have been included in the circle of the strong Waldron – Sutherland friendship that lasted for so many years. It was a very special and enduring partnership.

    With our love and best wishes at this sad time,
    Debbie and Ian Coffey

  2. I am sorry for the loss for all the family and extended family members and friends. Beverly touched many hearts and will be missed by all.

  3. To Mark,Caroline, Elizabeth and families, such a lovely service with lots of memorable memories thank you for sharing those wonderful times of Bev’s life story. They say behind every great man is a greater woman I believe this is true of Bev. I remember at the Cantillon family gatherings you always new that Bev had arrived due to her infectious laugh and happy smile. My son said to me the other day “mum should you be worried about getting dementia as most of your family suffered from it” . My sympathies to you all for having watched a remarkable woman slowly travel down that path for the last seven years as I also experienced it with my mom. Our thoughts and deepest sympathy.

  4. Such a moving celebration of Bev’s life and so beautifully captured in all the eulogies, music and photos. Mark, Cas and Liz, you shared such wonderful stories in your eulogies and I loved hearing things about Bev that I didn’t know, especially about the white lines!

    I will always remember her with love and fondness, having pretty much spent my teenage years in her presence at Butler St, Stewart St or elsewhere on the various Waldron/Sutherland family holidays. Her hospitality and cheeky sense of humour is what stands out for me but after 45 years I do have so many wonderful memories of all her attributes throughout this time.

    I always admired her strength of presence, her indomitable spirit and devotion to her family and friends – her loyalty and love was always front and centre. She was a dear friend to my mother Elaine, who regarded her as her closest friend and they would regularly play cards together mid-week plus share interests in their children’s development throughout adolescence and early adulthood. It was further cemented by the close friendship of Glenn and my father Ian which made it very easy to go on so many holidays together. Bev and Glenn were regularly at our house playing Bridge or my parents at their house, always at the races (GGs) together, and on election nights inseparable as both Bev and Glenn and my parents wanted the same team to win – election night was a fixture in their diaries for so many years I’ve lost count. They would want to be together just the four of them to either celebrate or commiserate, but be very private about it.

    I loved and respected the fact Bev knew what she wanted and didn’t mess about – she was quietly passionate and yet gracious and strong. Needless to say I always made sure I stayed in the good books! Bev was always welcoming and accepting of all her children’s friends, myself included, and for many years we basically revolved around and in that marvellous pool … I’m not sure she ever once told us it was time to go home or was not the ideal host ☺ – it never once occurred to me we were not always welcome so I very much felt a part of the Waldron family. I also appreciated her steady hand and influence and am witness to how well she and Glenn guided their children with their shared values of love, loyalty, love of learning, perseverance and strong work ethic, among other strong values. I can’t imagine Bev doing anything that she didn’t see through (or do well) and could be as pragmatic as needed to make it happen (as evidenced by the driving stories!). She, along with Glenn, was such a strong role model for her children, friends and in later life to her many grandchildren.

    Pierre and Alex join me in sending lots of love to all the family; my mother Elaine, Julie and I will always cherish our memories of Beverley. xxx

  5. This morning’s service was a great tribute to Beverley May Waldron. The eulogies given by her three children provided a great insight into her life. She must have been a very talented and capable person so it is sad that her final years were diminished by dementia. However, folk left behind will have memories of her life in happier times and there seem to have been many of those.
    Best wishes Caroline and family – Valerie Mark.

  6. A lovely tribute to a woman who left an indelible mark on all lucky enough to have her in their lives. Sending our warm hugs. Luke, Clare, and Isaac.

  7. May Beverley rest in peace. We will always remember her especially for her warmth , her sparkle and her contagious laugh.
    Our loving sympathy to all her family.

  8. To Mark, Caroline, Elizabeth, your spouses and children and grandchildren, what a wonderful service of celebration of the life of Bev, thank you. I remember her for her bright spirit and interest in the Waldron relatives, of which I am one. With Glen and Bev, we looked forward to catching up each year at the Waldron picnic and sharing the hearts happenings. She was indeed a special person.

  9. A beautiful tribute to my lovely, unforgettable cousin. I will cherish my memories of Beverley forever.
