" I was so sad to hear of Beverley's death. I've known her since Kindergarten days and have fond memories of the many happy hours (and forbidden escapades) we shared. In later years teenage parties replaced midnight feasts but life was still fun in the interesting Bridgman house. Beverley had a long and eventful life - marriage, children, grandchildren- and in her younger days she was a keen climber and tramper. She also tap-danced, sang in a choir and taught the piano for many years. Quite a range of accomplishments! I haven't seen nearly as much of Beverley as I did when we were young (I remember a lovely 70th birthday in Wellington, the odd enjoyable weekend in Nelson) but I will miss her not being here any more. She was a generous and resolute person whom I will never forget. My deepest sympathy to you all." - Alison Grant
"I have just seen “Mrs Muirhead”s name on the Shone and Shirley website. Bev was a friend of my mother’s (Diane Page) in Newlands, where they both attended St Michaels and All Angels Anglican Church. I believe they served on some church committees together. Bev also taught my sister, Sue/Susan, and myself piano for many years. I remember well how nervous I would be before the recitals at her house - my heart was not in piano lessons and she no doubt knew it! I remember Rachel and Robin the most, of her children but wish to relay my sympathies to you all. I have lived in the Nelson region for about 18 years and it surprised me that your mother was also here - I had heard at some point from Louise Johnson (née Baine) that Robin also was based down here so that might explain Bev living here. My very best regards to you all, I am very sorry that you have lost your mum". Linda xxxx
