Beverly Lavallee Notice

Beverly Joyce Lavallee passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Saturday, November 7, 2015. Born in Providence, Rhode Island on January 25, 1941, the daughter of a shop owner in Warwick, she loved to recall her father's flower garden and her mother's love of family heirlooms. Her black cocker spaniel, Cindy, was her constant companion. As a child, Beverly attended Henry Barnard Lab and Classical High School where she excelled in singing and playing the piano. Later, she studied Sociology at the University of Rhode Island and was graduated with a bachelor's degree. She met her beloved husband, Bob, at Rhode Island Child Welfare Services. They were married over 50 years ago. She laughed with her children when she recalled how she and her husband spoke to each other in Russian on their first date. Beverly devoted over 30 years to the Department of Social Services where she first worked as a case worker and later as a supervisor. She was proud of her position. Despite a chronic pain condition that plagued her for a decade, she savored life: She and her husband developed an antiques business where she acquired treasures at yard sales and auctions and sold their wares at various shows along the east coast. The thing she recalled cherishing most of all during her last days were the rides in the country with her husband. She also held dear family gatherings and celebrations, outings with close friends and time spent with her beloved orange-tabby, Maggie. For this reason, donations may be made in her honor to the Baltimore Humane Society. Beverly is survived by her beloved husband, Robert Lavallee, four children, David, Beth, Nicole and Chris and 3 grandchildren. Her wake will be held at Ruck Funeral home on Tuesday, November 10, 2015 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. She will be buried at Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens on Wednesday, November 11, 2015 at 11 a.m.
