Beverly was a trustee of the Thompson Hill Cemetery Association and secretary of the Lander Alumni for many years. She was an avid card player. She enjoyed wintering in Avon Park, FL for 15 years, and her best memories were made at her cottage on Chautauqua Lake, NY with her family and friends. She was very proud of her children and grandchildren’s accomplishments.
