Beverly was a great example of what Paul encourages in Philippians 2:3: "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves."

Beverly was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. She loved the Lord with all of her heart. There was not anything that she would not do for her family and friends— going the extra mile, exceeding expectations. She had a servants heart, always wanting to serve others and bring happiness in their lives. Ever since she was a little girl she dreamed of being nurse. Her goal in life was to make a difference in other’s lives. She was the life of any party!
