Beverly Acey McCormick Obituary
Beverly Acey McCormick passed away in Poquoson, Virginia at the age of 89 on August 5, 2018.Beverly was born on July 18, 1929 in Norfolk, Virginia, the only daughter of Raymond and Virginia Acey. She received an Associate's Degree from the College of William and Mary in Norfolk (now Old Dominion University) in June 1949 and went to work for the Navy soon after. There she met Lieutenant Thomas F. McCormick, and they were married in Norfolk on November 28, 1953. Tom went to work for General Electric and they settled in Niskayuna, NY where they raised four children, Stephen, Harold (Happy), Laura and Ann. They also lived in Ossining, NY, Wilton, CT, Vienna, VA (when Tom was the 17th Public Printer of the United States), and Camp Hill, PA. They moved back to Niskayuna in 1985, and when Tom retired a few years later they bought a house on Canada Lake, NY where many of their friends had also retired.Following a stroke when she was 32, Beverly surprised her doctors by 'relearning' to walk with the help of an electric current, and though she never regained the use of her arm, she kept the warmth and positive attitude that had always been part of her life. Beverly loved being with friends, family and her cat PK, loved to laugh and sing and had an incredible memory for past events. She was predeceased by her son, Hap (January 29, 2008) and her husband, Tom (March 19, 2009).Beverly will be greatly missed by her surviving children and her eight grandchildren, Matthew and Timothy McCormick; Tommy and Kelly McCormick; Virginia, Lesley and CJ Hyer; and Lauren Messerschmidt.In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, 1332 N. Halsted Street, Suite 201, Chicago, IL 60642-2642, 312-587-9272, www.pulmonaryfibrosis.org.
