BEVERLEY L. BLAIR 1925-2014 Beverley passed away peacefully March 7th after a brief illness, on what would have been the 71st anniversary celebrated by her and her devoted husband, Jack, who predeceased her in February, 2013. Gregarious and energetic, Beverley loved to celebrate all events with family, friends, laughter and (of course) champagne. March 21st would have been her 89th birthday. A world traveler, gifted artist, spiritual student and teacher, Beverley was born in Marshalltown, Iowa and moved to Miami with her family as a teenager. Glamorous from the start, she was runner-up in the Miss Florida Beauty contest and went on to marry her high school sweetheart, Jack, after they met on a blind date. Always putting family first, Beverley was a loving mother to her four children: Leslie Haatvedt (Larry, Vero Beach), Laura Harrison (Mike, Miami, FL), David (Teresa, Vero Beach) and John (Julie, Naples, FL). Beverley treasured her nine grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. In addition to her immediate family, she is also survived by her three siblings, Janet Houk of Vero Beach, Patricia Duffett of Daytona, FL., and Roger Grimes of Miami, FL. After Beverley was a Christian Science Practitioner and reader in Miami Shores, she became a devoted student and teacher of Joel Goldsmith's The Infinite Way and, later, of Unity. She was a gifted interior designer with Cameron Interiors before she and Jack retired to Vero Beach in 1992. Recently, Beverley dreamed of a Peace Pavilion at Unity and so, to honor her memory, donations may be made to: The Peace Pavilion at Unity Church of Vero Beach, 950 NE 43rd Avenue, Vero Beach, FL 32960. SERVICES: A celebration of Beverley's life will be held Saturday, April 5th, at 11:30 at Unity Church of Vero Beach, followed by lunch at the home of David and Teresa Blair.
