Beverly CUSKADEN Obituary
CUSKADEN, Beverly Longtime resident of Palm Beach County, Florida, Beverly Cuskaden passed away peacefully on Friday, September 7 at TrusBridge, Delray Hospital after a brief illness. Beverly was the daughter of Katherine Morris and Harry DePauw. She was born in Paterson, NJ on March 14, 1926 into a large, loving Irish family whose roots were in County Cork, Ireland. She spent her formative years in Paterson where she attended East Side High School with such notable classmates as poet, Allen Ginsberg and guitarist, Bucky Pizzerelli. A beautiful young woman with the voice of an angel, Beverly won First Place in a Major Bowes Amateur Hour, the "American Idol"of its time. While working after school in an ice cream shop to help make the large family's ends meet, Beverly met George Percy Cuskaden, a dashing young salesman with a twinkle in his eye and his heart set on her. It was love at first sight and soon the young couple eloped to Elkton, MD where they married on July 12, 1944. They bore two sons, Robert M. Cuskaden (1945) and Scott S. Cuskaden (1952-1997). Beverly and George were married for 66 years when George passed away in 2010, a family record! Beverly is survived by son, Robert M. Cuskaden (Eileen); grandchildren, Kelly Christmas (John), Scott P. Cuskaden, and Kerry Reed (Ryland); and seven amazing great-grandchildren. She is also survived by a brother, Jack Flannery; nephew, John Flannery and nieces, Sherri Verilli and Kim Tamburelli. Scott S. Cuskaden (Holly) predeceased Beverly dying in 1997 of cancer. Beverly had many interests. Chief among them was caring for her family and working with George to build and decorate a series of beautiful homes for them to enjoy, first in New Jersey and then in North Palm Beach and Jupiter, FL. She loved to read and completed the New York Times Sunday Crossword Puzzle each week. She loved Ella Fitzgerald, swing music, the theater, movies and socializing with a life-long circle of friends, most of whom she outlived. She was gracious, generous, and stylish to the end. She loved to entertain and was loved by all who shared her company. She will be sorely missed by all her friends and neighbors. Her passing will be forever mourned by every member of her family for she was their cherished matriarch. She will be interred in a private ceremony at Riverside Memorial Park in Tequesta joining her beloved George, adored son, Scott and treasured mother, Katherine Morris. A Memorial Service for family and friends will be held at a later date. Condolences may be offered at www.aycockfuneralhomejupiter.com
