Beverly was born on October 9, 1934 in Humboldt, Iowa, the daughter of the late Bliss A. and Dorothy V. (Knop) Beebe. She served in the United State Air Force during the Korean War, serving from 1953 to 1960 as a First Sergeant.

Beverly and Connie had a wonderful life and a beautiful home in Big Flats. She was known for her green lush lawn - never a blade of grass out of place. Beverly and Connie enjoyed summers in their lovely home in the Adirondacks on the river in Indian Lake, NY. They took many trips out west to visit relatives and enjoyed the sites. Beverly was an animal lover, she had beautiful persian cats and many wonderful border collies over the years. She was a great friend and she was admired for her dry wit and straight forward honest approach to life. She will be greatly missed.

She is survived by cousins: Paula Williams, Penny Johnson; nieces: Suzanne Kosick, Lisa Curtis, Michele McSorley; brother and sister-in-law; Peter and Carol Vail; close friends: Mary Gail Lee and Nancy Williamson.
