    Ed and Beverly were such good Friends to us. We met every Christmas at Laughlin Nevada, and talked each week on the phone. Beverly lived on after Ed’s death. And my daughter Shannon was like her granddaughter. We miss her so much. Rest In Peace. Bev. We loved you miss you and Ed very much. kay

  • So sorry to hear of Beverly’s passing. Her first husband was my Uncle OJ, and I have many fond memories of him and of their son Patrick. Rest in peace, Beverly!

    Looking through my mom’s address book and found Bev. She was such a great friend to my parents. I’m sorry to hear of her passing (mom passed in 2020). Hoping those two found each other…along with their sons.
