Beverly has been a neighbor and friend for about the last 20 years. Beverly was true to her word and could always be counted on. She definitely could say what was on her mind. She was so helpful to her friends assisting them with their needs. She could be seen daily walking her puppy. First there was Thunder and with his passing, along came Buddy. Beverly’s house was a gathering place for the girls and a game of Mexican Train. I was invited as a male participant but never wanted to intrude to this all girl troupe. Beverly loved her family and spoke about all of her children and the accomplishments of her grandchildren. She even visited them in California. She was a proud grandmother. She managed to display and advertise food products at 3 local grocery stores and was remembered by so many people. Beverly was a positive impact to those around her. She will be missed by all who knew her.
