Press, Beverly - Miami  
PRESS, BEVERLY, born to Morris and Mollie, came into this world on May 12, 1929, in the Bronx, New York. When Beverly was a young teenager, she met Herman Press, who was a friend of Beverly's brother, Danny. After Herman returned from serving in World War II, Beverly, who was 16 years old at the time, and Herman started dating. Four years later, the two married and began their new life together in Hialeah, Florida, where they bought their first home, followed by a home the two had built in Kendall. Beverly's dreams included wanting as many children as possible, wanting as many pets as possible and wanting to be a career woman. All of those dreams came true. Beverly had four children, countless dogs, cats, rabbits, birds even an iguana. She was very active in Schutzhund dog training and judging through her 80s. While Beverly adored her husband, children, and grandchildren, she also cherished her best friends, her pets: Sarge, Shep, Rocky, Beau, Thor, Caesar, Zeus, Mr. Spock, Kirk, Troy, Toddy, Cody, Athena, TC, Brave, Morris, Cricket, Athena, and her soul mate, Eros. As for her career, early on Beverly was a bank teller and waitress, but she had much bigger goals. Eventually Beverly went to college, taking night courses while working during the day and taking care of the household and children as well. After years of juggling career and raising the family, she earned a Masters Degree in Public Administration as part of the very first graduating class at Florida International University. Her executive career took her from Southern Medical Group to CHI South Florida. Then Beverly founded Stanley C. Myers Community Health Center, a health care provider for the elderly and poor on Miami Beach. Beverly served as CEO from the start until she retired. Now called Miami Beach Community Health Center, there are three locations including one named after her, the Beverly Press Center. In 1998, Beverly and Herman moved to the mountains of Tennessee, where they built the last Press Family home. That's where they enjoyed their remaining years with new friends and constant visits from their children and grandchildren. What made Beverly so special was her desire to give back to those in need. She volunteered her services to senior citizen centers, nursing homes and hospitals, often bringing her dogs to comfort those who were ill or alone. She touched so many people through her years. Herman, the love of Beverly's life, passed away in their home January 10th, 2015, one day after their 66th wedding anniversary. Beverly passed away ten days later on January 20th, 2015. Beverly is survived by her four children, Bill, Charles, William and Michele, six grandchildren, and Athena, her dog-best friend.
