Beverly A. Pelkey 80, a longtime resident of Marlborough, NH, died on Sunday, December 2, 2018 at her son, Francis’ home in Harrisville, Rhode Island, following a courageous battle with cancer.

Her parents, Henry A. and Maude I. (Putnam) Davis, proudly welcomed their daughter into the world on October 24, 1938 in Amherst, NH.

A very hard worker, Beverly’s work career began at the former Princess Shoe Company in Keene, and AC Lawrence Leather in Winchester, NH. Her most recent job brought her the greatest joy in being able to help many in the community as a driver with Monadnock Developmental Services bringing many to New Hope New Horizons in Keene. The relationships she fostered with many created a special bond with Beverly, with so many being like family to her and many times accompanying her on special trips and vacations.

Beverly’s passion in life was helping others, and she was rewarded two-fold in the special bonds she shared with those in return.

Beverly was an avid floral gardener, and she enjoyed camping in Connecticut as well as playing bingo. She became friends with many while watching her daughter, Debby’s softball games, as well as of most recent, her granddaughter, Lindsey’s softball games.

She will be greatly missed by many especially her son, Francis L. Clark, Jr. and his wife, Tina, of Harrisville, RI; her daughter, Debby Clark and her wife, Robin Nelson, of Keene, NH; grandchildren, Ryan Clark, Lindsey Clark, Christopher Nelson and Ciarra Monty; a great-grandson, Brayden Donahue; and many nieces and nephews. Beverly was predeceased by her husband of 43 years, Franklin D. Pelkey, on November 24, 2013; a daughter, Donna Clark; and her siblings, Marvis, Robert, Eunice, Clara, Bernice, Fred, Hank and Jackie.

Family and friends are invited to call on Saturday December 8, 2018 from 2:30 to 3:30PM at the Foley Funeral Home, 49 Court Street, Keene. A funeral service and celebration of her life will be held at 3:30PM in the Foley Funeral Home. Rev. Lance Nelson will officiate. Burial will be in the spring in the Westport Village Cemetery, Westport, NH.

In lieu of flowers, for those who wish, donations may be made in Mrs. Pelkey’s memory to New Hope New Horizons, c/o Southwestern Community Services, PO Box 603, Keene, NH 03431-0603.

The sad passing of a Wonderful woman, that touched so many lives. As she joins her friends and family she hasn't seen for a while, I'm sure my brother Danny Town will be close to the front to see her. Danny went to New Hope and Bev was his van driver, but more than that she was one of his best friends. We always drove past her home to see Bev's Christmas lights, Danny always wanted to seeing her home 1st. A sad goodbye to a Beautiful Soul.
