Dear Family,
I am so saddened after seeing the passing of Bev. I am so sorry I had to work, but my sincere sympathy goes out to her family. I worked with Bev at L.S. Ayres (Macy's) for many years and I can't say enough about how nice she was. Her smile truly described her personality!!!
It's hard to understand why people are taken from us, but find comfort in knowing you were all a very special part of her life!!! I will miss her a lot and keep her memories close to my heart!!! A wonderful lady that will truly be missed!!! Many thoughts and prayers, Shelly Springer

Beverly (Bev) was such a wonderful, fun and faithful friend. Our friendship goes back to at least 1948.
All our EHS club "girls" will never forget the good times we had together with her. We will always cherish the memories. All of you have our deepest sympathy.
