at Brighton, England, and in the spring of 1946 Beryl along with many other War Brides moved to Canada to
begin a new life. It was in Taber, AB that Beryl and Jack raised their family and co-founded Hi-Way

always the happiest when surrounded by her children and grandchildren, she loved to share her many
