She was born in Des Moines, Iowa and was the: daughter of the late Rex and Doris Lewis; daughter-in-law of Helen Bassoli and the late Henry Bassoli, Sr.; mother to Stephen (Katie) Bassoli of Prospect, CT, and Kyle (MaryKate) Bassoli of Cheshire, CT; sister to Lynette Haaf of North Haven, CT, Cathy Abbott of Colorado and Cheryl Anderson of Pennsylvania; and grandmother to Ivy Bassoli, Evan Bassoli, Rheya Bassoli and Jack Bassoli. Her family moved to Northford, CT, in 1967, where she graduated from North Branford HS in 1972. She met Bud, the love of her life, in 1975 and they were married in 1977. They were meant to be with each other for an everlasting, love-filled and happy marriage. Bev's passions included family, dancing, flowers, gardening, cooking with Bud, photography of nature and architecture, movies, visiting the U.S. National Parks and being with her beloved dogs Hayley, Colby and Macy.
