Beverly was the beloved wife of the late William Henderson; Loving mother of Joanell Henderson; Cherished grandma of Michael (Savana) Forkum and Jamie Lynn Blanchard; Adored great grandma of Jayden, Damien, Landen, and Brentley; Dear aunt and great aunt to many nieces and nephews.

Beverly was born on January, 6, 1927 to Ernest and Frances Conley in Rock Falls, IL. She spent her childhood growing up in Rock Falls where she met the love of her life William and they got married on January 25, 1946. She and William were blessed in 1954 with the birth of their daughter Joanell. In 1958 their family moved to Rockford, IL where Beverly and William lived out their years together, loving each other and traveling the world. They went to Florida every summer together. On June 29, 2015 William passed away. Beverly found comfort in a new puppy that she named Molly and her friends that she played cards with once a month. Beverly was a true lady, who always looked her best; making sure her nails were done and that her hair appointment was set for Thursday (which her daughter Joanell always made sure she made it to).
