Elizabeth Beryl Boyle

October 25, 2019 6 Condolences Print Obituary

It is with the saddest of hearts we announce the passing of our beloved mom, Elizabeth Beryl Boyle (nee Jones). Beryl as she was lovingly known was born November 6th, 1930 in Widnes, Lancashire, United Kingdom, and went to be with her Lord and Savior on October 20th, 2019 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada at the age of 88 years. She was predeceased by her parents Thomas and Annie Jones, her brother Terence and sister Pauline, and her beloved husband and best friend Hugh Francis Boyle.

Beryl was a compassionate and beautiful person who spent her life caring and nurturing others as a mother, grandmother, friend and RN. She is survived by her nine children, 26 grandchildren, and 17 great grandchildren who loved her dearly. She met her loving husband Hugh in England after the war. They were married in August of 1951 in England and moved to Dublin, Ireland where they raised their children. With aspirations of more opportunities for their five youngest kids they emigrated to Canada in August of 1981. They settled in Edmonton where she continued her nursing career until her retirement from the University Hospital in 1992. After her retirement she volunteered with great enthusiasm for her church. She also travelled extensively over the years visiting her children and grandchildren who were her legacy and light of her life.

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the nurses on Station 51 at Grey Nuns hospital for their compassionate care of mom in her last two weeks of her life. We would also like to acknowledge the loving care she received from the staff at Chartwell Heritage Valley, moms home for the last 18 months. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimer's Society.

God Speed Mom, Fly with the Angels.

  1. I am sorry for your loss. My life was enriched by knowing your mom/grandmother. She was a special lady.

  2. I am her great grandson Stephen Boyle from Dublin, Ireland. I was saddened to hear of my Nan Beryl’s passing, may she rest in peace. I send my condolences to my extended family at this difficult time. I love you Nan and will never forget you. Even though our time spent together was brief it was a special time. Sincerely Stephen.

  3. So sorry for your loss. Thinking of you and your family. May your fond memories help you through this difficult time and allow her to live on in your hearts.

  4. May songs of the angels welcome you and guide you along your way.
    May the smiles of the martyrs greet you now as darkness turns into day.
    Every fear will be undone and death will be no more,
    As songs of the angels bring you home before the face of God.

  5. Mom (Beryl) was not only my Mother-in-Law, but my dearest friend. From the ‘Introduction’ dinner, to the Engagement ring car ferry trip, she was Pauline’s protector, but saw enough in me to let me marry her daughter. I will miss all the conversations we had about things of substance, and just BS’ing I will miss her guidance, council, and her friendship. Not many can claim ‘I had the greatest Mother-in-Law of them all’. Spread those wings Mom and fly with the Angeles. ALl my Love, your favourite Son-in-Law (LOL) Eric

  6. You will be forever in my memories. May your rise to heaven be swift and also may you be greeted by all those before you to the ever lasting life in heaven .
    Our condolences to the family.
