Was just sitting here wondering how many feet of my hair Beverly cut off.

Hey, thanks for the live stream. It meant the world to Susan and I that we were able to join you, if only from afar.

To Bev’s family...I am so sorry to learn that Bev is not with us any longer. I know how you all will miss her positive attitude and love that she had in her heart for her family. Bev and I go back a long way and our closest time was the years we spent ay MHS in the Class of 1952. A lot of her time the last few years was spent organizing our class reunions with the help of some of the members still in Muscatine. The last I spoke with her she was disappointed the reunion for this year had been cancelled but with her positive attitude she was continuing on hoping the cancellation would be reversed. Rest In Peace Bev your bad days are now gone along with you but you will never be forgotten by any of us who love/loved you.

So sad that my longtime friend Bev has passed on. Bev believed in God and I know she is in a better place. Bev always had a positive upbeat attitude even when she wasn't feeling good and I know she had plenty of those days with the battle she fought with cancer. I don't ever remember Bev having a bad word to say about anyone. I know that she loved her family, she would talk of them often. Rest in Peace sweet friend. Marie LaRue.
