Beverlee "B" Shields--loving mother, civil rights activist, and devoted wife for 52 years to Dr. John A. Shields--passed away after a long illness. B was a free spirit and wholly unique individual. She was a talented artist, musician, and equestrian. The Shields family moved to Reno in 1978, where B and John started his medical oncology practice. Always interested and passionate about other cultures, they travelled the world together and spent family vacations at their home in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. She is survived by John and her three children Ski, Lisa, and Sara, and her granddaughters Ava and Presley. She will be terribly missed by all who knew and loved her.
Donations in her memory can be sent to the Reno Cancer Foundation.
