Beverly was a lover of the great outdoors. From camping to swimming, riding her pony and running the wheels off the Go-cart her brother once bought her. She spent her youth growing up in Grundy county and graduating from Trenton High School. Beverly moved around to Kansas, Oklahoma and Arizona before settling in Springfield, Missouri where she worked for several years making hard surface counter tops. She was a Girl Scout leader for a few years when her children were at home. In 2006 she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and later returned home to Jamesport. Beverly was a wife, mother and grandmother who enjoyed collecting owl and angel figurines and loved house plants. She enjoyed spending time with her family and always took pride in her work. While in the nursing home she loved to read her bible, attend morning devotionals and the Sunday afternoon services. She was a fighter, and someone who never gave up hope.
