Beverly and I were in the same fourth grade class at Paradise School, occasionally in classes together after that. When we chatted and danced for a minute at the 40-year reunion she mentioned her family, how proud she was.  We were never close friends, but I remember her as serious, quiet, intelligent, a contributor.  I'm sure she was a wonderful elemntary school teacher.

I remember Beverly from JC Fremont and High School. Always happy and it showed. She lived up to her married name and before that. I can see what a wonderful family she has.

As I read yet another In Memory entry, I am humbled by the accomplishments of our class. 

What a full and fulfilling life Bev had!  We were in Pep Club together our junior and senior years.  She was a serious student, but yelled with the best of them at football games.  Such a beautiful family she had.  I am sure Bev will be greatly missed.  Rest in peace in the hand of the Father, my friend.
