Dr.Beverly Du Gas, a founding member and the first President of the BC History of Nursing Professional Practise Group, now Society, suffered a severe stroke mid November and died on November 22nd.
Until about a year ago, Beverly regularly attended our meetings & events, despite her many health challenges. In April 1998 Beverly was given Honourary Membership Status in the BCHNS for her outstanding & continuous support of the BCHNS. Beverly’s children honoured her career on her 80th Birthday by sponsoring a portrait doll in the RNABC Memorial Doll Collection, which can be viewed at the CRNBC Library and on this website.
We honour & recognize all Beverly’s accomplishments, we will all miss her and her unfailing desire to contribute ideas.
We extend our heartfelt condolences to her family.
A service will be held at St.Faith’s Anglican Church Vancouver, Saturday Dec 1,2012 at 10:30 a.m. Donations can be made to the Church or to the UBC School of Nursing Scholarship Fund.
