Bev was one of the most helpful, friendly and professional people I ever dealt with in city hall. I am so sad to hear of her passing. My condolences to her family and friends.

I was fortunate enough to have grown up with Bev and lived just a few houses down the Street. Ironically, it seems, I was also blessed to have run into her at Holloween, while visiting my parent in our "old neighborhood". I'm happy to say, she was in such wonderful spirits and seemed truly happy. We'll all miss her and remember her very fondly as another "sister". God bless her family and loved ones.

So sorry to hear about Bev. I went to school with her at Fremont Elementary from probably Kindergarten until fifth grade. She was always bright, smart and friendly. I lost touch with her, but certainly remember her as mature beyond her age. I never heard her say a mean word about anyone.
My condolences.

Beverly was like champagne, fabulous, bubbly, and sweet. She was always grateful, kind, and helpful. A real angel.
