Byril was born and raised in Deer Lake, Newfoundland. She met and married Gordon on June 30, 1961. Together with their family they moved to Calgary in 1979 and resided there for the remainder of their lives. She accomplished much throughout her life but was particularly proud of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.


Byril loved spending time with family and friends, cooking, baking, and preparing family dinners. She also enjoyed her getaways to the casinos.


Byril’s most memorable moments are fishing and berry picking as a child.


Byril’s favourite saying was “Yes, my love.”.


She will be most remembered for her beautiful smile, and genuine care for everyone she met and for her homemade bread.

Byril is also survived by her brother Jim and two sisters, Delores and Jane, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
