Dec. 14, 1938 - Jan. 26, 2013 OKLAHOMA CITY Beverly Ann Donley was born to Fred and Mildred Wallace in St Elmo, Illinois on December 14, 1938. Her family moved to Oklahoma where she grew up and later graduated from North W. Classen High School in 1957. That same year, she met Buddie Donley whom she married on August 1, 1957. They started their family with the birth of their daughter Deborah Donley in 1959, followed by the birth of their son Fred Donley in 1960. Beverly was blessed with five grandchildren, Chelsea Swalve, Elliott Kalbali and John, Andrew, and Sam Donley. Beverly also had three great grandchildren, Ashley Elliott and Preston and Gavin Swalve. Before retiring, Beverly worked 21 years for the State of Oklahoma Health Department. After a long, 35-year battle with Parkinson's Disease, she passed away peacefully in her home on January 26, 2013 at the age of 75. Beverly was a very strong, honest, loving and caring person, who will be missed by her loving husband, friends and family. Beverly's family would like to thank Excell Home Care and Hospice for all of their help and support in making her as comfortable as possible. There will be a graveside service at the Rose Hill Cemetery on Saturday, February 2, at 11am. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Parkinson's Foundation is greatly appreciated.
