Beverly Joan Michalek September 9, 1930 – July 24, 2020

Beverly Michalek was born in Hartford, Connecticut to parents Stanley and Sigrid Fleet. Her sister, Bunny, was born in 1932, a year and half later. The Fleet family moved to California in the mid-1930’s where the family settled in La Mesa. She and her sister loved exploring the La Mesa area together. Beverly graduated from Grossmont High School in 1949 and later that year married Gail Nunnery, with whom she had four daughters. Her marriage ended in 1964, leaving Beverly as a single parent. To support the family, she took typing at a night school, which lead to her first job as a private secretary to a real estate investor. Later, she worked for the County of San Diego as a welfare Eligibility Worker. In 1980, while out dancing with friends, she was introduced to Ron Emil Michalek. They were married on June 14, 1980, in Hawaii, on the island of Molokai. They enjoyed a long and loving relationship, going on cruises, traveling and spending time with family and friends. They took joy in walking together, at the beach in San Diego or around Lake Murray near their home in La Mesa –– always holding hands. Ron passed away in February 2020, just months before Beverly died.

Beverly is survived by her four daughters - Barbara Battisti, Debra Blankenship, Diana Dutton and Susan Stropko, seven grandchildren and six great grandchildren. She is now resting peacefully with her parents, sister and Ron at the El Camino Memorial Park Cemetery in San Diego - forever hand in hand.

The family suggests that any contributions or gifts be sent to the San Diego Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association* or your preferred charity. *https://www.alz.org/?_ga=2.136148149.56968171.1596104660-802811230.1596104660
