Beverly Anne Hallman Alexander, 73, of Columbus, Georgia died at Emory Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia on November 23, 2021.

A visitation for family and friends will be held on Sunday, November 28, 2021 from 3:00 PM until 4:00 PM at Grace Presbyterian Church of Columbus, Georgia. A memorial service to celebrate her life will be held at 11:00 AM on Monday, November 29, 2021 at Grace Presbyterian Church with Pastor Charles Hasty officiating.

Beverly was born in Miami, Florida to the late Arthur Emmett Hallman and Helen Ann Walsh, moving to Columbus, Georgia as a young child. She graduated from Jordan High School and married her high school sweetheart, James Dennis Alexander. She went to work at AFLAC when she was 18 and served as the assistant vice president of human resources. She retired from AFLAC after 30 years of service and began working at Peachtree Natural Foods as the Human Resource Director. She worked there for 15 years.

Beverly was a great cook and loved to host family gatherings. She enjoyed painting with acrylics and oils and was an active member of the Columbus Artists/Art Guild. She was an active member of Grace Presbyterian Church and generously contributed to her community by volunteering at the Safe House of Columbus. Her Gentian Elementary classmates were dear to her heart and earned the nickname, “Gentian Ladies.” However, her most enjoyable and precious role was that of “MiMi” to her four adored grandchildren.

She is survived by her son Jason (Jessalyn) Alexander, her daughter Ashley Alexander Mobley, her four loving grandchildren: Ansley Elizabeth Mobley, Mary Preston Alexander, John Robert “Ian” Mobley III, and Anna Frances Alexander, and her brother Eugene Nelson Hallman. Beverly was preceded in death by her husband James Dennis Alexander, her son James Preston Alexander, her parents, Arthur Emmett Hallman, Sr. and Helen Ann Walsh, and her brothers, Arthur Emmett Hallman, Jr. and Edward Lowel (Nancy) Hallman.

Memorial gifts can be made to The Safe House via Grace Presbyterian Church, 7211 Britton Dr. Columbus, Georgia 31904, www.gracechurchcolumbus.org.

My sincerest condolences to Beverly's family. She was a patient of mine before I moved away, and we also went to church together at Grace Presbyterian. She was such a sweet and talented person and will be missed by all whose lives she touched. Prayers go out to all the family in the days and weeks ahead. Sincerely,
Richard Straus, Sr.

I met Beverly in the 1960’s, when her brothers Emmett, Gene and I were in Boy Scouts together. Fast forward to early 80’s we met again at Aflac and worked together until she retired but we were neighbors for years too. A true and great friend, coworker and I had the privilege of being her City Councilor for several years. We had great conversations over the years sharing memories of the neighborhood and Family. She bragged on the grands often! RIP My Friend!

Jason and Ashley,
We are so very, very sorry for your loss. Our family has wonderful memories of your mom (from all of us kids growing up in Windsor Park and also of working at Aflac - my dad, husband and me - with your mom) and she will be greatly missed. Many, many good memories of catching a ride to CHS with Jamie and of seeing your sweet mom around the neighborhood. The Thompson and Garrett families send our love and sympathy to you and your family.

I worked for AFLAC many years ago and remember speaking to Beverly on numerous occasions by phone. She left a lifetime lasting impression that she was a very nice lady. Always ready and eager to help the field force in any way she could. My Deepest Sympathy to her family!
