Obituary

It is with sadness and a great sense of loss that we announce the passing of Jennifer Berry on Tuesday, February 15, 2022 at the age of 80 years.

Jennifer was born October 11, 1941 in Durban, South Africa. In 1962, Jennifer graduated from nursing school and then travelled to England with her nursing friends to take midwifery training. After touring Europe and finishing her training, she joined her brother who was captaining a yacht in the Bahamas. After working on the yacht, she flew to Canada and to Gainsborough, Saskatchewan to take up a nursing appointment in April 1964. In June 1964, at Carlyle Lake (White Bear Lake), she met Robert Leroy Berry. By September, they were engaged and then were married January 9, 1965.

Leaving her nursing profession, Jennifer enjoyed helping on the farm and raising 5 children. She devoted her life to her family.

Jennifer was an avid gardener known for her flowers that everyone could enjoy driving by the farm on Highway #8, north of Carievale. She also made sure to keep the abundant bird feeders always full during the warmer months, especially for her favourite hummingbirds. She loved to travel and organized memorable family trips every year. Once the children were grown, Jennifer and Leroy continued to travel around the world ensuring to visit relatives in South Africa. When not travelling, visiting with family and friends or knitting, she loved to read her mystery novels and listen to classical music. She had an unbeatable spirit and love of life.

Throughout her life, Jennifer’s faith was strong. Baptized in the Presbyterian faith in South Africa, Jennifer became an active member of the Carievale United Church after meeting Leroy, becoming involved in the Seymour Ladies Group, UCW and CGIT. Later on in her life, Jennifer and Leroy became members of the Carnduff Associated Gospel Church. Jennifer died in the presence of all her children, their spouses, and some of her grandchildren.

She is survived, and will be most lovingly remembered, by her husband of 57 years, Leroy, and her children Catherine, Maurice (Carmen), Bryce (Evette), Julia (Jeff), and Mark (Kyrie). She was also the best Granny to Christina, William, Brenna, Simon, Mitchell, Raylynne, Davin and Autumn. She also leaves to cherish her memory, her brother-in-law Ron and nieces Linda and Carolyn. She was predeceased by her parents Bernard and Anna Wallace Bradley, brother Brad and sister Diana.

Hers was a life well lived and well loved. Sunset in one land, Mom, is sunrise in another. We love you.

There will be a graveside service for immediate family members in the spring of 2022 at the Carievale Cemetery.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in Jennifer’s name to one of her preferred health charities: the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, 457 - 9th Street, Brandon, MB. R7A 4A9, Canadian Cancer Society, 1910 McIntyre St. Regina, SK. S4P 2R3, Arthritis Society, #110 – 2550 – 12th Ave. Regina, SK.
