Condolence: Beverly was a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a great grandmother, a friend, a student and a co-worker.
She was our sister and we are sure that we probably upset her world when we were born. Twins were not what they were expecting. To be the only child for 12 years and then two babies come into her life took some adjustment, especially since all three of us shared the same bedroom until she was married. Debbie and I have talked a lot about those days this past week and there are only good memories. The only thing Beverly did not like was when we would pull out her record player and play her 45’s which included Elvis Presley, Paul Anka, Pat Boone, Peggy Clark and others.
Beverly was born in Florida and while our father was overseas serving in the Army. Our mother and sister lived with our Grand Parents. Because of the war several grocery items were rationed for example butter. There was a day when our mother could not find Beverly and she was beginning to get concerned. Someone found her hiding underneath a table eating the 1lb piece of butter. Beverly enjoyed it but there was no way to go back to the store for more butter until the following week.
When our father was discharged from the Army they relocated to Manville, New Jersey and all three of them began building a new life. When she was 7 or 8 Beverly decided to invite all of friends to her Birthday party with one request that they not buy a gift but give her money. She wanted to buy herself a cowgirl outfit. Our Mom found out and she did have the Birthday party and she did receive a special gift of an outfit with a cowgirl hat, vest with fringe and if our memory of the story is good even a pair of boots. From pictures of Beverly she was involved in Dance Lessons and Baton Lessons when she was young long before we came along. She had lots of friend in High School and was always busy. After moving to California Beverly often came back to New Jersey to attend her High School Class Reunions. She always had a great time and caught up with old friends.
Our mom was a great cook and one of Beverly’s favorite meals was pork and sauerkraut over mashed potatoes.
Our sister has always had a strong faith and believed in the Word of God. When we were in 7th grade for Christmas she gave each of us a new Bible. Her love for God was evident by her involvement in church and her service to others. She was always telling Mom about a Missions Trip she was going to on or how she was going to help a friend with a need. Often times she gave more than she could afford.
In 2009 our Mom was ill and home on Hospice. We called Beverly and asked if she could come to Pennsylvania for two weeks or more to help care for mom. She came without any hesitation. For two weeks we shared, loved and laugh a lot taking care of Mom. Those two weeks were filled with so much joy for all of us even Mom because all of her daughters were together for the first time in over 20 years.
Sister you will be missed but our loss is heavens gain.
We would like to share a poem from Mary Alice Ramish
Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on, and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone. Those we love can never be more than a thought apart, far as long as there is memory, they’ll live on in the heart.
This Book of Memories brings those affected by loss together by encouraging communication and self-expression. By giving friends and family a special place to tell their stories and express their feelings of loss, it helps them care for one another during a very difficult time.
