Sacramento, CA – Beverly Ann Forest of Marina left this earth in peace and took the hand of the Lord on February 3, 2013 at Kindred Hospital, after an extended illness. 
Beverly Ann Snow was born on August 24, 1957 to Beatrice Zeno Snow and Clyde Snow in Fresno, California. She graduated from Monterey High School in 1975. She was a devout Catholic and attended St. Jude Catholic Church in Marina. She met her soul mate, James Forest, Jr. in 1977, while he was stationed at Fort Ord, and they married in October 1980. She and James traveled throughout the country as his military career advanced, with long-term stays at Fort Lewis, Washington and Fort Ord, California. She accepted the responsibility of being an Army spouse with grace, and she took her role seriously as she welcomed and counseled new soldiers and their wives to the military lifestyle. Beverly and James have been blessed with three children, Angel, James Hugh, III and Audrey, all of Sacramento, California and two beautiful granddaughters, Avaya Marie and Nina Simone.Beverly loved spending time with her family, preparing meals with flair from her Louisiana roots, and listening and dancing to Zydeco music. Her wide smile and friendly nature created a large circle of friends both at home and work. She enjoyed her work in the juvenile and criminal justice system in both Washington State and most recently with the Monterey County District Attorney’s office. In addition to her immediate family, she is survived by her parents, Beatrice Phillips and Clyde Snow, Sr.; brothers Clyde Snow, Jr., George Phillips, Jr. and Ricky (Ameena) Snow; sisters Jada Snow, Kelle (Robert) Jones and Kim Snow; godson Kazuo Scott and goddaughter Elizabeth Lamark, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles and friends.

    I thank God for having known Bev for a very long time. I also thank God for the last time we were in Monterey and we got to spend some time with our husbands and go out to eat and do some walking around in downtown Monterey. A joyous time. I thank God for preparing Bev’s mansion in heaven. If we all accept Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour we will see Bev again.
