Beverly was a favorite Aunt to many of her nieces and nephews.  She was the Aunt who remembered everyone's birthday with a greeting card and or a phone call.  She was remarkable in that way, taking time at the start of each month by addressing all of the birthday cards at once and mailing them as the month progressed.  She accomplished this task well into her eighties until she moved to Chateau de Notre Dame Nursing Home in 2014. She loved living there because she loved everything she could about life. Her example of making the best of every situation was the legacy that she left with all of her family. We are all enriched by having had this special woman in our lives.
 
She was a great friend to her many friends throughout her life.  Her young years were taken up with volunteering at her childrens' schools.  She was a founding member of the Pontchartrain Garden Club. After her children were grown she took up the game of bridge with a cadre of friends who supported one another through the ups and downs of life. She was a long time volunteer at the Audubon Zoo with a dear friend, Jane Lueke.  They both volunteered for over 25 years. One of the things she will always be associated with is her love of all things chocolate. When gifts were given to Beverly, she would always have chocolate at the top of her list.
 
Beverly will be missed by many.  But all of us will remember her positivity, her selflessness, and her devotion to God and family.  She was a devout Roman Catholic, having been educated at Holy Angels Academy K-12 by the Marionites of the Holy Cross.
 
Beverly's lasting effect on everyone she encountered will be the memories we shared because of her giving nature. Her key to living a happy and long life was her ever-present spirit of kindness, always bringing out the best in those she touched.  May she rest in the arms of Jesus and Mary .
