Beverly Hogaboom Obituary

Born in Albion, Nebraska to Ray and Katherine Clark on September 12, 1956, Beverly ("Bev") Hogaboom moved with her family to the Yuba-Sutter area when she was one year old. She is survived by her spouse of 11 years, Ray Hogaboom; siblings: Herbert "Skip" Clark, Mary (Clark) Lamb (Patrick); children: Brooke Lynn Binkier, Bobby Binkier (Jennifer) , Sarah Kay Binkier; grandchildren: Bobby Binkier, Gwyneth Binkier, Maykala Abbas, Cierra Abbas, Suraya Abbas, Noah Abbas, Aiden Setzo, Declan Setzo, Joshua Hogaboom, Emilia Hogaboom, Angie Reyes, and numerous beloved friends and colleagues.

Her professional career and her personal life exemplified her compassionate values and ethics, as she led by example in everything she did. She brought forth into the world a greater kindness, generosity, love, and connection, making it a better place through all the lives she touched. Her presence was always a comfort, and you always knew something would be taken care of if you gave it to Bev.

Early in her career, she was employed by the Colusa County Social Services Office as an eligibility worker, then continued with the California Department of Health Care Services. In 2004, she joined the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services as an Analyst-Health Insurance Specialist. She was known as a mentor and learning coach, always seeking out ways to improve the organization. She worked tirelessly as an advocate for those who needed it most.

If you were looking for Bev outside of work, you would find her enjoying her friends and family, all of whom loved her stories, her laughter, and her willingness to listen and offer support. She was admired for her trustworthiness and acceptance of all people, without judgment. Her children will carry with them memories of her big heart and her devotion to their happiness. Her grandchildren will remember that she would dance and play like it was the only thing in the world that she wanted to be doing. They taught her how to use her phone and she never looked back, FaceTiming every night so that they could read to her. They brought an abundance of light and love into Bev's life, and they were blessed to have known the love of their beloved "Nana."

You might also find Bev on her much-loved patio, feeding and tracking the hummingbirds. She had a passion for her avian companions, just one of her many interests. It was just like Bev to pick a hobby and become an expert - and she picked many hobbies! From cooking (but not baking!) to candle-making, essential oils, gardening, camping and crafting, Bev's love of learning continued long after her formal collegiate achievements.

You would also frequently see Bev at The Rivers Church, where she found a religious home of which she was an integral part. Bev's faith was strong and sustaining, and she contributed as much to the church as she received. Bev was always there to greet with a smile, listen with an open mind, and worship and pray with an open heart. The definition of selfless, Bev shared whatever she had with anybody in need, no questions asked.

Everyone will remember that she was always looking out for the ones who needed it most. The earth is a brighter, kinder place because of her having lived in it, and she will no doubt remain in the hearts of everyone who knew her. Beverly's adventurous and expansive spirit will live on as she continues to protect and nurture from heaven.
