BASS, Beverly Jane (Cole)

Bev, as she preferred to be called, attended Rogers High School where she sang in the choir, twirled baton and performed as a majorette. She met Howard Bass while skating at Dishman's roller skating rink. Their first date took place at Hillyard Baptist Church where Bev was a member at the time. Howard, an airman stationed at Fairchild AFB, wasn't met with overwhelming family approval. However, after 14 months of courting she agreed to an elopement and 58 plus years of romance began with their union in Coeur d'Alene, ID. She loved children and had two sons and three daughters: Howard A. Bass (deceased), Danny Bass, Carol (Bass) Hanna, Kathy (Bass) Warren and Mindy (Bass) Cass. Bev's kids gave her a total of 15 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. Each and every one was special in Grandma's eyes. Her love came from the Lord whom she served as a member of Trinity Baptist church from 1967 until her joining him. Bev is survived by her soulmate, Howard; sisters: Fran Simantel and Shirley Wolf; brothers: Richard, William, Donald and Ronald Cole; and her children listed previously. A Funeral Service will be held at Trinity Baptist Church on Friday, February 11, 2011 at 12:30PM. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to Trinity Baptist Church or the Union Gospel Mission.
