    Great Gal…always happy and not complaining…In the 47 years I knew her, I did NOT know she played the oboe and bass clarinet!! (I did, too). Although me miss her, I am sure she is enjoying an Endless supply of Chocolates in heaven, and smiling at all of us.

  • Melba Derrick says:

    Our Pinebrook coffee group will never be the same without Bev. She loved to look at pictures of our great grandchildren. She never drank coffee, but she always enjoyed the treats that were brought from time to time, and donuts on everyone’s birthday.
    She willed so much.
    I read once that when someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure. Bev is a treasure.

  • Melba Derrick says:

    That should say she will be missed so much.

  • Patrick Ellsworth says:

    Bev, growing up in Parkway was made easier because of your dedication to all of us kids in the neighborhood! There were times during the summer when I truly believe I spent more time at your house than my own and never felt like I had overstayed my welcome (but I’m sure I pushed the envelope)! Thank you for all you did and for allowing me into Gary’s life all those years ago, he is still my friend today! 🙏👍♥️

  • Linda Kessler says:

    I was so privileged to know Bev in our little coffee group at Pinebrook Village. I’ll remember the fun-loving sparkle in her eye and the beautiful look on her face which testified to a life lived in such positive ways. She loved her family, friends, her work and her wonderful life with her very best friend. We all miss her so much.

  • Pat Dowd says:

    Bev and Gene have been my wonderful neighbors for only ten years but no one could ask for better ones. I will remember Bev with a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eye!
    My prayers go out to Gene, her special beau, and all her family.

  • Tony and Linda Perez says:

    We were so lucky to have met Bev last year in the Pinebrook exercise class. Bev is a beautiful lady inside and out and we will miss her sweet, kind spirit that always shined. We loved walking with Bev out to the lobby and seeing her face light up with so much joy and love when she saw Gene waiting for her. We’re sending our love and gentle hugs to you Gene and to your family.
