Beverly -Jean Hards-Halpenny

February 8, 1959 — April 11, 2024

To all who knew her uplifting smile, easy laughter and timeless grace, the family wishes to notify of the passing of Beverly Halpenny. She passed peacefully in the early morning of Thursday, April 11, 2024 with her husband Reg Halpenny by her side. 

Beverly-Jean Hards was born on February 8, 1959 in Nokomis, Saskatchewan to parents Raymond and Joyce Hards. Bev had a love of animals, especially horses, and participated in 4-H in her early years. While attending the University of Saskatchewan’s School of Agriculture, she met Reg Halpenny from Kindersley, Sask. and they were married on June 20, 1981 in Saskatoon. 

They started a new family while farming south-east of Kindersley, raising two children, Judy and Michael. Along with being a mom, Bev was active on the farm. The couple had strong entrepreneurial and community spirit. In addition to farming, they also owned and operated a retail store, “Work World”, in Kindersley for 20 years, with Bev providing a key role in its success. Bev served numerous years on the Kindersley Chamber of Commerce and the Board of the Kindersley and District Credit Union. 

Upon retirement from farming and their other ventures, Bev and Reg moved to Redcliff, Alberta. Bev enjoyed their frequent winter travel to Mexico and the United States. After a few years, they relocated to condo life in Saskatoon, Sask. and acquired their beloved cabin at Turtle Lake, Sask. 

Bev was a proud and loving mother, and equally so, as a grandmother. Time spent with all grandchildren was a top priority. She treasured the busy moments when family would gather at the lake. Bev was a conscientious sister and aunt as well. Nieces, nephews and cousins who gathered all were made to feel welcome and loved.

Bev is predeceased by her parents, Ray and Joyce Hards, her brother Rick Hards, and her in-laws Willard and Maxine Halpenny and her sister-in-law Joan Wilson. She is survived by her husband Reg Halpenny, daughter Judy Halpenny and husband Colin Bjorndal (Hinton, Alberta) and two grandsons, Oliver and Ari; son Michael and wife Lindsay (Swift Current, Sask.) and grandson Jack and granddaughters Kate and Leah; brother David Hards and wife Theresa (Saskatoon) and nephews Shannon and wife Sara, Dustin and wife Shelley and niece April;  sister Nancy Hards (Christopher Lake) and nephew Chris and partner Ray; sister-in-law Rhonda Hards (Nokomis), nephew Jordan and niece Ashley. Bev’s in-laws include sisters-in-law Laurel Hamilton and partner Betty-Anne (Truemanville, Nova Scotia), Lavaughn Duxbury (Filmore, Sask) and husband Ralph, Nancy Cole and husband Ian, Central Saanich, BC, brothers-in-law Rob Wilson, Saltcoats, Sk, and Tom Halpenny, Winnipeg, Mb. There are many additional nieces and nephews and cousins whose lives have been touched by Bev’s love. Lastly, Bev enjoyed many pets, and by her side at the end was her dog, Penny.
