We have known Beverly for many years. Tom met her in 8th grade. She was a warm, loving woman.
We are so sorry to hear of her passing. Love to Joe and Adam.

My name is David Ward.
Beverly, as well as Shirley and the late (Margie) were/are my first cousins. Their Mom Gladys (Ward) Negus and my Dad (John Ward Jr.) were siblings. When Bev and her sisters were young we lived on the same (Barnaby) Street in Fall River, Ma. and in 1952 my parents purchased our Grandparent Ward’s home at 46 Hanson Street, also the child-hood home of my Aunt Gladys, father John and the rest of the Ward siblings.
My older sister Jo-Anne (recently deceased) and myself were often visited by Bev and Shirley as they rode their bikes from “down North” up New Boston Road to spend the day with us. My Dad would put on a cookout and we had a grand old time.
When the family moved to Florida we were devastated to say the least.
There were no other Ward children of our generation and their weren’t for several years to come.
Other then seeing the family when they visited Uncle Eddy in Somerset, I recall vividly taking time away from College at Spring Break, visiting Aunt Gladys, Uncle Russ, Bev, Shirley and several others.
In fact, my stay was quite a bit longer than allowed which did not go over too well with my folks.
Through the years, we have always kept in touch.
It was just a few years ago, I had a medical problem while in Miami’s MS Hospital. Joe and Bev came to see me and even chauffeured my wife, my dog and me to MIA for emergency transport to Boston’s Logan Airport and on to MGH. I’ll never forget that.
Well, I guess there’s still a lot of us Ward’s hanging around, but I think only Uncle Larry Levy (yes, a Jew) and a wonderful man living in Boynton. Beach.
His son Mark, who I never met, is in my and Bev’s generation and as first cousins, I hope that I get to meet him some day.
So in closing, my condolences and love to Joe and to Bev’s family. I loved Bev and hope to see her again, but not too soon.
