She had a one of a kind heart of gold and will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

B.J. is survived by her husband of 35 years Don Gillard, mother Genevieve Walton, son, Steven Gillard, daughter, Shannon Gillard, grandson, Riley Heger, brothers, Kenny Duvall and wife Lori, Danny Duvall and partner Cynthia.
