Beverly was one of a kind. She was full of fun and was always a joy to be around. She was born into a precious family and touched so many lives through her nursing career - she was dedicated and caring. She is now with Bro. Cliff and Ms. Inez and they are all happy and free of pain. God bless you all .

I am so sorry for your loss. Beverly was a year ahead of me in Nursing school at Matty Hersee. We all had great memories of living in the dorm and our shared nursing experiences. I am sure she will be missed by all. It was never a dull moment with her around. Jan Dorsey Mardis RN NAA
