MOORE, Beryl Marjorie (Smith) -

After fighting the good fight passed away at St. Peter's Hospital.

We choose to believe that she has gone on to the "Big Bingo Hall" in the Heavenlies.

Since September 5, 2013 Mom had been "waiting" for the Heavenly Bingo Caller to pull the last number she needed for her full card. He finally called that long-awaited number on Saturday, August 23, 2014 at 2:30 p.m. She has now gone to claim her big jackpot prize - eternal life!

Her vibrant, one of a kind, tell it like it is personality will be missed by her children and their spouses: Mike and Georgia, Lynda and James, Tonie and Dave and Roy. Her grandchildren: Frank, Jacksyn, Tameka, Mackenzie, Andrew and Cassee will fondly remember her love for them. Her one and only great-grandchild Jaelyn will only have pictures and our stories to know her by.

Mom will be missed by all those who call 395 Mohawk Rd. their home and by all who knew her from her previous careers before retirement.

Mom's wishes were, "no muss, no fuss and no tears". So we thought the least we could do was give her a tribute of words for the whole of Hamilton to read!

Thanks to St. Peter's. Special thanks to Dad and the Springer Family for continued support and love. Big thanks to Carol - you are an amazing buddy!

Well Mom, we shall "talk at ya later"
