After living most of her life in the Orlando area, Beverly moved to Deland, Florida in 2001. She was active in the Garden Club in Deland and was an avid butterfly lover, searching out milkweed, creating waystations, protecting caterpillars and releasing new butterflies into the sky.
She was a homemaker, loved to shop and had an amazing eye for home décor. She had a green thumb and loved adding extensive flower beds all over her yards. She was a foodie, spending hours in the kitchen trying new recipes and cooking with her husband. Nothing made her happier than hosting parties and spending time with family and friends. She was known for her festive Christmas displays, filling her homes with multiple elaborately decorated trees.
