GREENFIELD - Beverley Mae (Gerry) Interlande, 84, offered her smile for life and quietly passed away on Saturday, April 6, 2013. Accepting her passing smile at her hospital bedside were members of her immediate family. She succumbed to respiratory complications.
She was the former wife of Vincent Interlande, who passed away in 2003.
The family members who will dearly keep her in their hearts are, sister, Natalie Gray of Windsor Locks, CT; son, Vincent J. Interlande of Greenfield; daughter, Susan Musacchio and husband Andy of Bernardston; son, Mickey Interlande and wife Barbara Boutwell of Colorado; son, Paul Interlande and wife Diane of Turners Falls; grandchildren, Leah Musacchio, Mark and Mandy Musacchio, Alexander Interlande, Ryan Interlande, Gina Marie Wyman and boyfriend Todd Russell, Angela Graham and husband John, and Joseph
Karpinski; great-grandchildren, Hunter Interlande and Kennedy Russell, many nieces
and nephews throughout New England.
Beverley was predeceased by brother, Adelbert Gerry; sister, Shirley Aumand, and twin sister, Erminie Marsh.
Born in Walpole, NH, Beverley eventually moved to Dummerston, VT, where her father and mother, Bert and Minnie Gerry operated a Railroad Depot and Post Office. Upon graduating from high school, Beverley moved to and found work in Greenfield, where she met and eventually married Vincent Interlande. She worked several jobs including the former Hub Restaurant and became a tool inspector at the Greenfield Tap & Die where she worked for 33 years until early retirement.
During retirement, she spent many happy days going to the two casinos in Conn., rejoicing at her many jackpot wins, refurbishing a lakeside cabin on Forest Lake in Winchester, NH, playing Cribbage, Gin, Kings In The Corner, Solitaire, etc. She was a continuous reader of mysteries and Who Done-its, crossword puzzles, TV game shows, and last, but not least, watching Judge Judy. Her pride and joy was her recipe for spaghetti sauce, of which nobody found fault with and it's flavor only got better with age. Her apple pies were not bad either.
Always tough and disciplined in her ways, as well as her outlook with world issues, she was so strongly admired for her ability to show people what was wrong and what was right. Never afraid to speak her mind and rattle a few complacent cages, people and family members found her wisdom quite honest and respectful. Underneath it all, her heart was weaved with yarns of gold.
Calling hours will be Tuesday evening from 6 to 8 at the Smith-Kelleher Funeral Home, 87 Franklin St., Greenfield. Funeral services will take place Wednesday, April 10, at 10 a.m. at the funeral home. Burial services will follow in Green River Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, it is requested memorial contributions be made to the Greenfield Police and Fire Departments.
