Beverly was born in Candor, N. Y., on June 19, 1935, the daughter of Harold and Niva Hickok Williams. She was educated in the Binghamton school area and moved to Lenoxdale in 1943.

She worked hard her whole life until she was 72 years old when she retired and moved in with her daughter and her daughter's husband in Sheffield. She had many talents but just loved having her own antique shop for years in Sanford, Fla.

Beverly loved music and she was a wonderful piano player. She cherished spending time with her family; she loved her children, grandchildren and her great-grandchildren very much.

She was so loved by her Lord that He filled her with joy and a nurturing spirit. She just could not wait to go home to Him.

Beverly is survived by her two sons, Tim Bush, and his wife, Krisann, of North Port, Fla., and Ron Bush and his wife, Jen, of Keene, N.H.; her three daughters Deborah Hallock and her husband, Lee, of Otis, JoAnn Shmulsky and her husband, Stephen, of Sheffield, and Wendy Bush and her husband, Jeff, of Bolton, Vt. She also leaves her stepdaughter, Wendy Thrunston of Minnesota; 11 grandchildren, Tim, Nathan, Leeann, Billy, Jimmy, Amanda, Alexander, John, Tony, Rebekah and Tawney; her sisters, Jean Curtis, Melinda Delvecchio and Harriet Rick; her brothers. John and Jimmy Drake, 16 great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild and many cousins, nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by the father of her children, Hobart Bush, who died in 2001, and by her second husband with whom she resided in Florida, Arnie Westgaard, who died in 2003. She was also predeceased by her brother, Carl; by her sisters, Betty, Sharon, Barbara, Ruth and by her grandson, Matthew Shmulsky. She looks forward to a heavenly reunion.
