Beverly had recently moved to Georgia to be closer to her daughters, leaving Southern Illinois where she and Bob had made their home at Lake Chautauqua for 43 years. Her passion in life was teaching. She was devoted to making an impact in the lives of her students and treasured any and all correspondence from prior students. She was also a loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and friend. She will be sadly missed by her family and many friends. A private graveside service will be held at the Jonesboro Cemetery. Crain Funeral Home in Anna-Jonesboro has been entrusted with the arrangements.
