McFARLANE, Beverley Rae It is with great sadness that the family of Beverley Rae McFarlane (nee Bildson) announces her passing on June 27, 2019 in her 58th year, peacefully at home while surrounded by family. Beverley was the beloved wife of Fraser McFarlane, exceptional and loving mother of Brittany McFarlane (Galen Burrows) and Scott (Rebecca) McFarlane. She was the cherished daughter of the late Gerald and Betty Bildson, and dear sister of Cathy (Jack) Cardoso, Paula (Eyan) Wheatley. Beverley was an admired daughter-in-law of Nan and the late Jack McFarlane, as well a treasured sister-in-law of Deborah McFarlane (Andy Talbot), Stuart McFarlane (Patty Yoon) and Cameron McFarlane. She will never be forgotten and always loved by her nieces and nephews Brae, Hannah, Qwisun and Justin. Beverley was born August 22, 1961 in Kingston, Ontario. To the delight of her parents, she was the first of three girls. She always excelled in her role as a big sister; her leadership skills were evident from an early age. Bev will be remembered for her caring and vibrant spirit, which carried into her committed and successful career in healthcare. Beginning as a critical care nurse in Huntsville, she touched the lives of countless patients and families. Her leadership abilities flourished in her role as Chief Nursing Executive at Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare. After finishing her Masters of Arts (Leadership) with Cum Laude, Bev fulfilled her career goal and accepted the position as Chief Executive Officer at Perth & Smiths Falls District Hospital. In every role Bev held, she will be remembered for her focus on patient and family centered care. Her natural ability as a leader garnered her respect from all members of the health care team. Beverley was an outdoor enthusiast who loved skiing, windsurfing, hiking and snowshoeing. Above all else, Beverley considered her family and friends to be the most treasured part of her life. She will be missed dearly by all of those who knew her. A celebration of life will be held on Friday, July 12, 2019 from 2-4 p.m. at Grandview Golf Club, 245 Grandview Drive North Huntsville Ontario.
