BEVERLY MURRAY LEVERMANN McALLEN - Beverly Murray Levermann passed away in Sugar Land, TX at Hermann Memorial Hospital on July 4, 2014 at the age of 77. She was a lifelong resident of McAllen, TX. She was preceded in death by her parents George and Lucille Murray, her husband Gerald "Dutch" Levermann and her precious daughter Melissa. She is survived by her son Jim Levermann, his wife Laurie, granddaughters: Megan, Shelby and Lexa. She is also survived by her sisters: Dorothy Murray of Beaumont, CA and Mary Louis Scott of Conroe, TX and numerous nephews and nieces. After graduating from McHi in 1954, she attended Texas A&I in Kingsville and the University of Texas in Austin. Beverly was very active in her home city. She was a member of the McAllen Junior League and was very involved in the founding of the Museum (IMAS) and other programs of the League. She was a member of Chapter GH of the PEO Sisterhood and served as an officer. She loved hosting meetings in her lovely home. She was a dedicated member of the First United Methodist Church and her Aldersgate Sunday School class. She and Dutch traveled representing the Texas Citrus Mutual and the Rio Grande Valley at many events. They were the ambassadors for the citrus industry in South Texas. In later years, her true talent for decorating became her passion. She worked for Jones Office Supply for many years and eventually opened her own interior design business. She designed many offices throughout the city and did the first design work for the McAllen International Airport lobby. All of the Sierra Title offices across the Valley and El Paso also enjoyed the fruits of her talents with completely remodeled offices. She graciously shared these talents with all of her dear friends; a touch of Beverly can be found in most of their homes. Many precious moments were spent in her well-manicured and babied garden as treasured time shared with friends and family. Her biggest passion of all is summed up in the word grandchildren. Her love will be cherished with lasting memories of baking cookies, little girl tea parties, story time, dude ranch visits, and American girl doll playtime. She went through enormous effort to make sure she took every opportunity possible to be present to cheer for all of her granddaughters' activities. To celebrate Beverly's love of life and the color yellow, many are wearing a touch of yellow at the upcoming service. The service will be held at 1st United Methodist Church, 4200 North McCall Street, McAllen, TX. at 9:30 a.m., Saturday, July 12. Interment will follow at Roselawn Cemetery in McAllen. After interment, celebration of Beverly's life will conclude with a reception at 1st United Methodist Church for families and friends. In honor of Beverly, the family suggests memorial contributions to McAllen 1st United Methodist Church Building Fund. Kreidlerfuneralhome.com Blessed are the pure at heart for they will see God.
