Bev and I were BOWLING LADIES together for many many years. As the league finally ended we managed to see each other once in awhile for lunch with the other gals. She was a joy and someone I cared for very much. The world is a beautiful place having had her in it. Rest easy Pretty Lady.

Bev was always a joy to be around. She and I played as partners for a yearly Solheim golf challenge and had a lot of fun together. We always had fun with our group of gals who met monthly for our Whiner & Winers group, as well as our Thursday golf group. She will truly be missed by all of us girlfriends. May her family find comfort in knowing we all feel blessed to have called her friend.
