Beverly Quast Obituary
Beverly Quast

Beverly Gene Quast, nee Eager, 82, of Millstadt, Ill., born Jan. 24, 1934, in Bay City, Mich., died March 6, 2016.

The second of six children, Beverly was a high-spirited gal who loved dancing, nightlife, and water-skiing well into her sixties.

Throughout her active life, Beverly engaged in the noblest of endeavors, that of military matriarch. She married Paul Quast, a U.S. Air Force veteran, on Nov. 8, 1952, in Bay City, Mich. Beverly was the mother to a U.S. Army serviceman, and grandmother of a U.S. Army Warrant Officer. She tended and nurtured her family throughout her years, watching as her small son grabbed a piece of the newly built Berlin Wall, seeing her grandchildren become a pharmacist, college graduates, coaches, a railroad worker and marveling at the latest of her three great-grandchildren.

Beverly retired from Sears Roebuck and Co., and was an active member of Zion Lutheran Church in Belleville, Ill. To those who knew her, she was a true friend and companion who will be remembered with a deep reverence.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Clarence and Phyllis Eager; her siblings, Ronnie Eager, and Marlene Peterson; her daughter, Deanna Mueller; and granddaughter, Rebecca Russell.

Beverly is survived by her spouse, Paul Quast; her children, David Quast and Julie Russell; her children in-law, Anabell Quast and Jack Russell; her grandchildren, Jessie Mueller, Steven and Christopher Quast, Brian, Brent, and Brittany Russell; her great-grandchildren, Kansas and Alexander Quast, and Kamden Russell; her siblings, Dawn Williams, Danny Eager, and Suzie Lent; sister-in-law, Joyce Eager; brothers-in-law, Richard "Dick" Williams, and Samuel "Bud" Anderson; and nieces, nephews and many friends.

Beverly was a devoted, loyal, and ardent child of our beloved creator. Her flame will be missed.

Visitation: Visitation will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, March 11, 2016, at Valhalla-Gaerdner-Holten Funeral Home located at 3412 Frank Scott Pkwy W, Belleville Ill.

Funeral: Services will be held at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, March 12, 2016, at Zion Lutheran Church, 1810 McClintock Ave., Belleville, Ill.
