Beverly was my daughters teacher in highschool and she made such an impact on her. She had such a wonderful way of reaching into the toughest of students and letting them know she cared. A wonderful woman who touched so many lives will be missed by many.

My sympathies to Beverly's family. I visited with her several times during her stay at JRP when my mother was in the memory unit and ate with her. She was a joy to visit with! I went back several times and visited after mom moved out to the main area. Beverly always remembered me when I asked her what I did for a living and she said "fish"because I told her we have a aquarium store.I wish I could have known her in her earlier years. I am sure she was fun to be around. God Bless. Phillip Roe , Coal Valley, Il

My sincere condolences for the loss of Beverly. It was an honor and privilege to know her. She got me to be more politically active and taught me how to drink Scotch. She will be missed but live on in your hearts and memories. God bless you all.
