Beverly Arnold Hurst Obituary
Beverly Arnold Hurst

Beverly Arnold Hurst of Blacksburg, VA, departed this life on August 11, 2011. A beloved wife, mother, sister, daughter, and true friend to many, Beverly died at home with her husband, Homer T. Hurst, by her side.

A modest woman, her entire life reflected the Lord's charge: "Seek justice, love kindness, walk humbly with the Lord" (Micah 6:8.) Beverly was born in Oklahoma on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 1921, the third of seven children born to Jefferson Green and Nancy Rogers Arnold. She grew up in the Ozarks of Arkansas, and worked as a registered nurse before marrying Homer, then a young Navy pilot. Two opposites, they formed a vibrant, fruitful marriage and partnership that lasted almost 67 years.

Beverly was sensitive and compassionate to the needs of others. She was grateful to serve as a deacon, and president of the church women, at Northside Presbyterian. A lover of music, dance, literature and nature, she maintained a great sense of humor to the end. Beverly will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

She is survived by her husband, Homer T. Hurst; children: Homer T. (Ted) Hurst, Jr.; Hyla and (h) Jim Stockbridge, JaNan and (h) Rudy Flora; Rhoda Hurst; 11 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. Beverly is survived by three sisters: Geneva Rodman, Jaydine and (h) Larry Morton, and VaRue Guthrie. She is also survived by three sisters-in-law: Jane Arnold, Jesse Hurst Brill, and Inez Nellie Hurst Ferrante.

A Memorial Service was held at Northside Presbyterian Church in Blacksburg, VA, and one is planned for Arkansas relatives and friends at the Norfork School Reunion in Norfork Old High School Building, Sunday, 9/4/11, at 1:30 p.m. Beverly and Homer graduated there in 1940, and Homer is the only surviving one of that class.

Condolences may be sent to Homer T. Hurst, c/o Rhoda Hurst, 571 Indian Valley Road, Radford, VA 24141.
