December 4, 1935 – June 9, 2022

It is with profound sadness that the family of Beverly Anne Bell (nee Baker) announces her passing on June 9, 2022 at age 86 at Selkirk General Hospital.
Left to cherish her memory are sons, Bruce (Vincenza), Brian (Beth), Bradley (Theresa), her grandchildren, Nigel, Sergio (Jasmine), Francesca, Andrea, David (Sara), Erica, great-granddaughter Bridget and her cat Calli. She will also be sadly missed by sister Joan Baker, special niece Debbie Taylor, nephew David Baker, Ruth Bell and many other extended family members across Canada. Bev was predeceased by her husband Norman, mother Margaret and father Leonard.
Bev grew up in Vista, Manitoba and then moved to Winnipeg as a teenager, started her family with Norman in North Kildonan and finally settled in Selkirk, Manitoba. She stayed home with her beloved sons and then started a career with the Province of Manitoba where she retired. She was a dedicated church member of Christ Church Selkirk and leaves many friends in Selkirk to mourn her. Bev was an amazing baker and cooked and baked for many church and family events. Her family will sadly miss her shortbread, sour cream coffee cake, molasses cookies, meat pies and her legendary pumpkin pie. She was a very generous donor to many charities and loved to travel.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Winnipeg Pet Rescue Centre, 3062 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3K 0Y1 or Candace House, 183 Kennedy Street #1B, Winnipeg, MB R3C 1S6.
A memorial service to celebrate Bev's life will be held Tuesday, June 28, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. in Christ Church, 227 McLean Avenue, Selkirk, MB R1A 0T7. Masks are required and a light lunch will follow.
Friends and family are invited to visit Beverley's memorial page at where memories and condolences may be shared.

  • I am so deeply saddened to hear of your Mom's passing. I have many happy childhood memories of our family get togethers. Auntie Bev's amazing cooking and strong presence with all "the boys" was always a true inspiration to me. ;) Bev was always such a dear friend to my Mom through all the good times and bad. I'm so very pleased that we were able to see your Mom at Mom and Ben's 15th anniversary party five years ago and it meant the world to them both that she could be there. Wishing you all my deepest and heartfelt condolences. xo - Posted by: Leslie Pura (Wade) (Friend of the family) on: Jun 28, 2022
