Beverly A. Minter
Beverly Annelle Rudd Minter passed away peacefully on Sunday September 6, 2020 surrounded by her adoring family.
Beverly was born in Ft. Worth in 1942. She was the only child of Meveric Clyde (aka Jimmy) and Wanda (née Underwood) Rudd. Both of her parents preceded her in death. Her childhood home was filled with love, music, hard work, and impeccable taste. She continued to spread these things around the world throughout her life.
She attended Polytechnic High School, graduating in 1960. After a few semesters at TCU she gave up her academic career to become a wife and mother.
Beverly married Roland W. Miller in Ft. Worth in 1961. Together they had two sons, Wesley and Reagan. They moved to Corpus Christi in 1969 where she owned and managed a Kwik Kopy franchise until 1984.
During her time in Corpus Christi, Beverly was very involved in Zonta International, a service organization with the mission of advancing the status of women. She served as a delegate for the Republican Party in Nueces County and was also a member of Mensa International there.
After she and Roland parted and her sons had moved away, Beverly returned to the Ft. Worth area to be near her ailing parents whom she loved and cared for in their last days.
Beverly married Edwin Daniel (Dan) Minter in May of 1989. This union brought her two instant daughters, Michelle (Mikki) and Kim whom she loved as her own for over 30 years.
Dan and Beverly enjoyed an exciting life of world travel for many years. While living in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia during the First Gulf War, they had opportunities to travel and enjoy far flung places like Singapore and Scotland to name just a couple. After retiring, they continued to travel in their RV whenever possible.
Beverly’s love, laughter, and grace will be missed for a long time by all who knew her. Left behind is her loving husband of 31 years Dan Minter.

Memaw was one of a kind to say the least. Everytime we drove down to her house she was always waiting for us by her screen door. I loved spending time with her an talking to her while she sat on her chair next to the fridge drinking a Pepsi.
Thanksgiving was always my favorite holiday to celebrate at her house. We would all sleep in the den an wake up to the Macys Thanksgiving Parade and the smell of a delicious breakfast cooking. I would tell her when I walked in the kitchen "Happy Thanksgiving Memaw" and she would tell me "Happy Thanksgiving darling."
I love and miss you Memaw so much. We will see you again ❤️

Beverly was my best friend in the whole world. She was so loyal forgiving understanding and when need be brutally honest. I treasure all the memories we made.

Beverly and I had a dear friendship for several years in the ‘80s and only became distant when she moved to Saudi Arabia. She graciously opened her home and invited friends in for parties, and we both enjoyed close friendships with Mary Ann Diamond and Joan Newland. When I can back into her life in 2000, she warmly welcomed the renewal of our friendship and we picked up right where we left off! I love Beverly for being genuine and sharing her life with me.
