Beverly JoAn Bianchi

November 20, 1939June 24, 2019

Beverly JoAn Bianchi, 79, of Ankeny, Iowa, went to be with the Lord on June 24, 2019, surrounded by her family at her home. Beverly was born on November 20, 1939, in Bondurant, Iowa, to Burton and Blanche (Stemler) Justice.

Visitation will be held at the Ankeny Baptist Church on Friday, June 28, 2019, from 6:00-8:00 pm. The funeral services will be at the same location on Saturday, June 29, 2019, at 10:00 am, with the burial to follow at Greenwood Friends Cemetery.

Beverly graduated from Ankeny High School in 1958. She married her high school sweetheart, Joseph, on April 4, 1959, and they recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. Beverly loved being a homemaker and enjoyed spending time with her family, entertaining family and friends, gardening and treasure hunting. Her faith was very important to her, and she truly believed that “having somewhere to go is home, having someone to love is family, and having both is a blessing.”

Beverly was preceded in death by her son, Joey, and is survived by her loving husband, Joe; daughters (and their spouses), Tami (Cuong), Trina (Robert) and Tarry (Tom); four grandchildren and three great grandchildren. She was proud of her family, and she will be missed dearly.

2 Timothy 4:7-8: 7I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the LORD, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day-and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.
