Messer, Beverly Ann Evans  
Beverly Ann Evans Messer, 73, died peacefully and surrounded by friends Oct. 21, 2014 at Waldo County General Hospital following a brief decline in health. She was born on a snowy day, Nov. 16, 1940, in Bloomingburg, Ohio, to Dora Louise Hughes and Lewis Edwards Evans. Bev, as she was known throughout the community, attended Bloomingburg schools for 12 years, graduating high school in 1958. She received a diploma from Mt. Carmel Hospital School of Nursing, Columbus, Ohio, in 1961. She entered the United States Navy Nurse Corps in 1961 and was stationed at Portsmouth, Va., for three years. Following that, she continued to serve in the reserves, while furthering her career as assistant supervisor and charge nurse at the Orient State Institute, in Ohio, working with psychiatric patients. In 1973, she moved to Concord, N.H. There, Bev continued to work as psychiatric nurse at the New Hampshire Hospital, McKerley's Nursing Home, Franklin Regional Hospital, in Franklin, N.H., and Brookside Hospital, in Nashua. She the moved to Midcoast Maine, and started her own business, Electrolysis by Bev, which she owned and operated since 1989. She was a past president of the Maine Association of Electrologists. A fierce, funny, caring and highly intelligent woman, Bev had an affinity for art and music. She read voraciously, painted, collected photos and artwork, sewed, cooked, and gardened. Her music tastes ran the gamut but she especially loved jazz. Growing up, she had a crank Victrola and loved listening to Caruso, in a playhouse that she and her sister set up in her father's corncrib-turned-tool shed on the family farm. Bev passed down her appreciation of art to her children and grandchildren, and proudly loved to talk about their creative spirits. She was a collector of glass work, and was a member of the Jones Museum of Glass and Ceramics, Corning Glass Museum and the Antique Art Glass Salt Shakers Collectors Club. Bev is survived by her children, Laura Noelle Messer, of N.H.; Nathaniel Norman Messer (Rene), of Ill.; Aimee Elizabeth Messer Arreguin (Joe), of WI; and Molly Anne Messer, of FL; her "adopted" son, Scott Lash; grandchildren Deiandra and Colton Messer; Ashliee, Shelbiee, Kelsiee, and Zoee Arreguin, and Carol Jean Lupien; and great granddaughter, Hazel Monet Jones. She is also survived by her niece, Crystal Hope Mathews Sciacca (Tony); nephew Duane Mathews; and great nieces and nephews, Linzi Noel, Emily and Jared Mathews and Riley Taylor. She was preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Sandra Sue Evans Mathews. In lieu of flowers, Bev has asked that her loved ones and friends send a bouquet to a friend, elderly relative or a deserving stranger. "Tell someone a joke, enjoy a glass of wine or a wonderful meal and think of me," she wrote, in her last wishes. "A friend called me a 'feisty old witch' and I consider that a compliment. Does that tell you a bit about my personality?" Bev's ashes will be scattered in the White Mountains and few along Penobscot Bay.
