  • Reverend Beryl Cotter - Celebration of Life
    Posted on: 2015-04-22
    BERYL CHRISTINA COTTER, Rancho San Diego Resident
    June 3, 1952 April 6, 2015

    Beryl Cotter, 62, a resident of Rancho San Diego for over 25 years, passed away on Monday April 6, 2015.
    Born in 1952 in Liverpool, England, Beryl was classically trained in ballet at London's Royal Ballet School. After years of dance, she opened her own hair salon in Liverpool before pursuing a career in the travel industry.
    Beryl then moved to Bahrain, in the Persian Gulf, where she served as a private flight attendant to the Royal Family of Bahrain. She then moved to South Africa where she taught dance and helped newly developing African Airlines train air hostesses. Many years later, Beryl moved to the United States where she worked for Virgin Atlantic Airlines developing the Virgin Holidays Wedding program for Richard Branson.
    After a career shift in 2002, Beryl went back to school at UCSD where she received her degree in Addiction Therapy and became a substance abuse counselor.
    Beryl changed the lives of hundreds of people and their families. Whether it was officiating weddings for any and all denominations in locations throughout San Diego County, or the counseling, kindness, and compassion she gave in her role as a family therapist to those suffering through the perils and aftermath of addiction. Beryl was a woman who changed the lives of people for the better and illuminated every room she entered with her vivacious personality.

    Beryl chose San Diego as her home and raised her family in Rancho San Diego where she lived for the past 25 years. She loved travel, socializing, the arts, and had a fantastic smile and laugh that could echo throughout a crowded room. She will be terribly missed.
    Beryl is survived by her son, Grant Cotter and her numerous friends who truly were her extended family.

    A Celebration of Life will be held at on Monday, April 27th at 6:30pm. Please email erikajillbird@gmail.com for information.
