Beverly's life was exemplified as a school teacher. She taught with desire and love. She established her rule that no child was left behind. Her creative insight for teaching not only brought awareness to her colleagues but parents as well. Parents requested their children to be in her class which resulted in filled and an overflowing classroom. She had clout and the ability to get what she needed for her students in order to teach them properly. She taught with creative insight, fun and rules and love. Her students embarked on lessons in mask making, stained glass, puppets, ornaments and many other projects, never to be duplicated by her next class.
After teaching her youngest son, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and many friends children, she hung up her degree, 33 years of pure enjoyment and laughs. She travelled with her husband, children and friends. She baked fabulous cookies, cakes, pies and made candies, which she joyously shared with her family, friends, neighbors and anyone who stopped at her door.
