Beverly S. Haile

Titusville - Beverly Stone Haile passed away on January 9, 2021, peacefully at home. She was born on November 21,1935 in Ashland, Virginia. She is survived by her husband Hudson C. Haile, her son Gregory C. Haile (Bonnie), her daughter Claire Haile Packer (Bruce), granddaughter Alisha Michelle Haga, grandson Derek Eugene Haile and Andrew Hudson Haile (Spencer) and great grandson Riley Hudson Haile and Rowan James Haile. Beverly was predeceased by her parents Evelyn Rennie Stone and James Minor Stone Jr, and her brothers James Minor Stone III and Gordon Rennie Stone. Beverly graduated from Henry Clay High School in Ashland in 1952 and was valedictorian of her class. She went on to Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg, Virginia. After one year she met Hudson on a blind date arranged by her high school classmate and Hudson's workmate and their lifelong friend, Bill Babcock. She left Mary Washington college, decided she would be a secretary and subsequently graduated from secretarial school in Richmond. After a two year courtship Hudson and Bev were married on August 27, 1955. In 1958 they moved to Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia, for Hudson to finish his engineering bachelors degree. Bev became a secretary to one of the professors at Virginia Tech and because of her secretarial ability and willingness to help any and all she was soon loved by numerous professors who appreciated her no-nonsense approach to written work and correct English language. Upon Hudson's graduation they awarded Bev with her *PHT degree"...for Putting Hubby Through. Their daughter, Claire, was born in nearby Radford, Virginia, in 1961. Their son, Greg, was born in 1963 in Newport News where Hudson worked. In 1966 Hudson decided he had to join the race for the moon and move back to his home in Florida and accepted a job at KSC. Since Bev and son and daughter were true Virginians it was a difficult transition for Bev. After a few weeks of warm balmy weather and sunshine she decided Florida was OK after all. The family settled in Titusville to live their lives and raise their children. Bev became a teacher's aide in her children's schools and proceeded to endear herself and talents to her teachers and staff. Upon the children's graduation from high school Bev went to work at Brevard Community College (now Eastern Florida State College), Titusville campus, as the faculty secretary where she soon became the one to consult about anything on campus. Her office became the "hangout" on campus where everybody came to discuss their problems or just to cry on Bev's shoulder. She was loved by all. In 1997 Bev and Hudson retired and realized their dream of touring the country and its great National Parks. Their favorite became Alaska and it's beautiful parks. In her later years Bev loved spending time with her family and listening to stories about their adventures. They all adored her and never failed to visit 'Mamaw' when they could. They, like so many others, knew what she was about and that was love and giving of herself. Bev's funeral will be held at First United Methodist Church in Titusville, Florida on Wednesday, January 20, 2021 at 10AM (social distancing and masks are required.) A graveside service for family only will be held at Oaklawn Memorial Gardens in Titusville, Florida.

All of us most certainly expressed genuine affection and gratitude for all your generous assistance at work. We also truly enjoyed all opportunities to share time and family with those at work and in your life otherwise. Kindly giving me the opportunity to quickly jump at the chance to donate blood for your grand daughter several times made those moments an exceptionally generous contribution in my personal life. Thanks so very much!
