Her love for gardening can be seen in every area of her yard with all of the beautiful trees and flowers that she planted and cared for over the years with her husband.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Sybil and Chester St. Amant Sr.; one sister, Wanda Lessard; and two grandchildren, Sara Marchand and Robby Rhodes.

Gayne, although I didn't know Beverly in person, I always heard the nicest things about her from you at our French Classes. We all prayed for this beautiful, courageous lady at class, and we now pray for you and your family.

With deepest sympathies,
