I grew up in the North End and have known Bev since childhood. She was a kind soul. In recent times, she was a dedicated volunteer for The Capitol Center for The Arts. I have always returned to the old neighborhood for the annual Memorial Day Parade and every year there was Bev standing at the end of Pearl St.
