Dear Glenn, Kim and Colleen,
We are so sorry to hear about the loss of your wife and mother. We have fond memories of our times at Sky Lake where we first met and the visits we made to one anothers homes. I served on an Emmaus team with Bev. We always had lots of laughs together. Somehow time got away from us and we didn't keep in contact which is sad. Just know you are in our thoughts and prayers. We know Bev was a good wife, mother, grandmother and friend.
Love to you all,
Debbie and John Craig

Pastor Beverly was an inspiration to many people at the South Auburn Methodist Church. Her preaching was wonderful as she didn't need to use notes during her sermons. I was so sorry to hear that she has passed. Our sincere condolences to Ken and family. Arden Tewksbury of Meshoppen, PA

Rob and I and our family are very saddened to hear of Bev's passing. She was not only a colleague but a great friend. She and I had many fun times when we worked together in Camptown and Laceyville Elementary Schools. She gave us much support and comfort when we suffered our family losses. When she and I were able to meet for lunch to catch up she always spoke about how proud she was of her daughters successes' and also how much she enjoyed her grandchildren. She will hold a place in our hearts and I will miss her always. Our deepest sympathies to all of you.
