Bev was full of mischief and loved playing pranks on people. She loved the outdoors, especially watching sunsets. She once saw an airplane make a cross in the sky. She claimed she saw “the finger of God” that day. She loved rollerblading, riding her bike, hiking, walking her dog, and feeding the squirrels. She enjoyed visiting with her neighbors in her later years. She played Yahtzee any chance she got and also enjoyed listening to country music.
She loved her church and her church family. Her favorite bible verse was Psalm 121: I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
She was preceded in death by 9 siblings and her husbands, Pete and Chuck. She is survived by her sister, Lorene Kidder of Colorado, sister-in-law, Jean Mitchell of Minnesota; along with several nieces and nephews.
