She was an active and enthusiastic member of The Children’s Museum Guild, The Metropolitan Opera, The Indianapolis Symphony, The Columbia Club and Hillcrest Country Club.

She also loved to attend her grandchildren’s activities as they were growing up. Beverly will be remembered for her dedication to her children, and grandchildren, but most notably, for her determined care of her daughter Julia. She loved reading, crossword puzzles, travel, her years at Lake Wawasee, listening to opera, attending the symphony and all things Indiana University. She had a permanently positive outlook, a smile that lit up a room, a quick wit and a fiery determination. Always the gracious host, Bev cared more about what was going on with others than with herself. A private family service will take place at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church followed by burial at Crown Hill Cemetery. Arrangements are being handled by Leppert Mortuary (https://www.dignitymemorial.com). A gathering to celebrate Beverly’s life will take place at a later date.

Brad, Carol, and Nick,

We were so saddened to hear of your mom’s passing. Nick, you were blessed with the “best Grandmother in the World”. She was such a JOY to be around! I have fond memories of those trips to Lake Wawasee. She will certainly be missed.

Brad, Bill, and Phil,

Not sure all of you remember me, but your mom was one of the nicest people I knew when I moved in and went to Belzer. We went to football games together and always had a blast. She will be missed. Please accept my condolences at her passing. God bless you all.

Fondly,
Dan Vawter and family
