To Vinnie and Wes she was a much loved daughter
Getting in trouble much more than she oughta
Her life long friend next door she did find
Beryl and Ann had fun all the time
She was sister and friend to Aileen and Jackie
Always so close and always so happy
Factory fodder at school she was called
She proved them wrong, she did it all
Although many jobs Beryl had in the end
She was respected, admired by all her work friends
Then came her children, Paul and Jane
For whom her love never once did wane
She was Mum, she was best friend, she was loved and adored
No closer a family could you ever wish for
She nurtured, she protected with all of her being
A proud loving mother, all knowing, all seeing
Then nephews and nieces, they came along
She loved and adored them, that’s Beryl’s same song!
Finally the children, both grand and great
More than a Nanna, more than a mate
More like a Mum to all of her children
She was the best, one in a million.
Everyone speaks of her smile and her laughter
They will stay with us all til time ever after
She’ll be loved, she’ll be missed, her memory treasured
To know such a lady was more than a pleasure
Our love and our memories will never decrease
Night night dear lady, please rest in peace.

Beryl was a fun loving lady with a great number of friends, young and old. Beryl loved to be the life and soul of any event, dressing up, dancing and generally having lots of fun.
In quiet moments Beryl would love watch a cowboy film or crime drama whilst knitting or crocheting something for someone.
