What a sad day for so many. Bev was my dearest neighbor and was a special to our grandaughter. Over many years my memories of Bev go from our bike accident trying to light a cigarette while riding. We got lost going to her sister virgina, we had to take a turn because a black cat crossed our path. Doing exercises, visits daily,laughs galore and how she loved her kids and grandkids. No greater love could a mom have. Covid messed our visits but she will be sorely missed for smile,joy for life and generous heart. She will be holding her dogs on her lap now. God bless her and the family and may God be holding her in His hands. We loved her dearly

Bev was as kind as she was beautiful! I too worked with her at Syncom. I always wanted to learn the art of cross stitching as she was the master of that art! RIP dear friend! See you on the other side of the moon!

Have known Bev for over 50 years and will miss her smile and personality. Sorry for your loss Mike, Kelly, and extended families.

I loved and adored Bev. I got to know her near 60 years ago when we all hung out at the Knit & Purl Shop when I was very young. She was the the life of the group and always had a smile. Several years ago she was trying to make afghans for her great grandchildren. She would get stuck and I had the honor of going over to her house to get her started again. She was so proud of being able to make them and I know she loved her family very much. We always had a great time and lots of laughs of "old" times. RIP Bev, we miss you.
