She enjoyed watching her hummingbirds at her window, loved her flowers especially marigolds, hens and chickens. During the winter months Bev and Uwe loved to travel to Florida in their motorhome.

She was an avid Motorcyclist, a member of the U.S. Motor Maid’s motorcycle club, enjoyed riding her BMW, and for 20+ years traveled, and supported sons Rick and Terry racing moto-x all over the east coast. She always had a bucket and rag in her hands at the racetrack, cleaning helmets, goggles and making sure everything was perfect. Above all she was a wife and mother who supported all her children in their endeavors and would give anyone the shirt off her back.
