Beverley was blessed with many grandchildren and great grandchildren. She leaves behind countless nieces and nephews, and extended family.

Beverley was a talented woman who held a vast array of jobs. By many she will be remembered for her role as Administrative Assistant for the town of Gilead, Maine for over 25 years. Most of which she ran the town office right out of her own home. The phones rang for town business at all hours to which she seldom turned anyone away. In 2006, AVCOG of Western Maine recognized Beverley with an award in appreciation of ten years of continuous volunteer service.

In addition to raising her own children and extended family, her nurturing hands have cared for, caressed and corrected many generations. When she wasn't busy managing the duties of a bustling household, the ‘Frog Lady’ could be found faithfully by her husbands’ side throughout the many business endeavors of their lives. ‘Frog Man’ and the Tadpoles back at the ‘LilyPad’ will live on, blessed by the rich greatness of her Love. Memorial Services will be held June 1, 2016 at 2 p.m. at the Bethel Alliance Church, Walkers Mills Rd, Bethel, Maine. Memorial donations may be made to Belinda Glover, executor.

Arrangements by Cliff Gray Cremation and Funeral Service, 60 Andrews Road, Bryant Pond, Maine.
