Beverley Burns


1933 - 2018

Beverley was born in Auckland but with her father working for New Zealand Police, she spent time in many parts of New Zealand.

As an avid sportswoman, she represented three provinces at tennis and two at badminton.  Beverley was interested in all sports and had so much knowledge about them, you would think she had played them all herself! 

She worked in seven government departments during her working career, where she met her husband Ross, whom she married in 1955. 

Throughout her life, Beverley always went out of her way to help others, providing many a youngster with financial help to attain their diplomas or degrees.  She was a person to whom many people turned for common-sense advice and friendship.
