Beverly K. Connell

AGE: 78 • Wilmington

Passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, June 4, 2017, surrounded by family.

A native Delawarean, Beverly was born in Wilmington on December 23, 1938, to the late Elsie (Spinden) and John F. Kirkpatrick, Sr. She was a member of the Wilmington H.S. graduating class of 1956. Beverly's work life included many different jobs. After graduation, Beverly worked at Bell Telephone, Layton Home, Robino Associates, Hercules, the News Journal and finally the Endoscopy Center of Delaware.

Beverly was a wife, sister, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and a true friend. She was an avid bowler and bowled in state, regional and national tournaments. She was a fierce competitor especially when it came to bowling, cards, and scrabble. She loved to cook and her home was filled with wonderful aromas. She will live in the hearts of her family and friends forever.

In addition to her parents, Beverly was preceded in death by her former husband and dear friend, Alfred A. Connell, Jr.

She is survived by her children: Joi A. Campbell and husband John, Alfred A. Connell III and wife Deborah, Jill M. Connell and wife Beate Pohlig, Michael T. Connell and fiancee Cheryl Paloni and her grandchildren: Daniel McClay, Nicholas Connell, Michael Connell, Chloe Connell and Bernard Paloni Connell. She is also survived by a loving brother Jack Kirkpatrick and his wife Flo and loving sister Robin Broomell and her husband Dennis, and many cousins, nieces and nephews.

The family thanks Seasons Hospice for the care they provided to Beverly in her final days.

We invite all family and friends to celebrate Beverly's life at the D.A.P. (Delaware Association of Police) Hall, 2201 Lancaster Avenue, Wilmington, Delaware on Tuesday, June 20, 2017, from 2 - 6 pm.
