Beverly Brotherhood Notice
Brotherhood, Beverly June 1922-2014 Beverly Brotherhood (nee Holmes) passed away peacefully at 91 years of age on February 8, 2014, at the Lutheran Home in Wauwatosa, WI. Born August 16, 1922 in Milwaukee County Hospital, she is predeceased by her father, Albert Ward Holmes; her brother, Albert Ward Holmes Jr.; her mother, Natalie Zache Holmes; her brother-in-law, Robert Brotherhood; and her late husband of 55 years, Richard Brotherhood. She is survived by her children, Roger Brotherhood of Wauwatosa, Ward (Valerie) Brotherhood of West Palm Beach, FL, Roy (Kathy) Brotherhood of Cave Creek, AZ and Amy (Ken) Grainger of Brandon, Manitoba Canada. There are also seven grandchildren and eight, soon to be nine, great-grandchildren. Beverly grew up in Wauwatosa where she attended Wilson School, Hawthorne Jr. High School and Wauwatosa East High School, class of 1940. She attended UW Madison as a Science major but didn't complete her degree in Medical Technology until 1967, from UW Milwaukee. She then worked at Lakeview Hospital and Mt Sinai Hospital until she retired. On December 8, 1943, she married her college sweetheart, Richard (Dick). Together with their family they made homes in Wauwatosa and Hales Corners, WI, and Acacia Villa, West Palm Beach and Orlando, FL. They returned to Wauwatosa to live from 1960-1974, at which time they moved to Eagle, WI. In their retirement years Beverly and Dick lived between Terlingua, TX and Wauwatosa, where Beverly lived out her final years. Beverly had many interests and loved animals. She raised dogs while in Florida, where she also had three horses, chickens, ducks, geese and even peacocks. In their retired years she and Dick trail rode on horseback in many of the southern states, particularly Texas. When she no longer could ride horses, she decided to learn to play the organ and was very active in the Harwood House Organ Club. A memorial gathering will be held at the Funeral Home on Thursday February 13 from 3:00 to 6:00 PM. We would like to extend heartfelt thanks to the 3rd floor NW staff at the Lutheran Home for the care they gave and the empathy they showed towards Beverly. Donations in Beverly's memory may be made to the Wounded Warrior Project (Beverly's favorite charity) or The Lutheran Home 7500 W. North Ave., Wauwatosa, WI 53213.
