Bev was very outgoing and loved her family and friends so much. She was so funny, blunt, and crazy, and we loved her so much for it. She always had these wild ideas and she never held back, she just went for it. But she lived her life the way she wanted to and it was a beautiful thing. She loved to shop for her family and gave gifts whenever someone stopped by her place. She was an amazing cook and she passed her love of cooking on to her kids and granddaughter. Her niece always called her “Aunty Bev”, and soon her niece’s daughter started calling her that too. Now all her niece’s kids call her that, it made her laugh and she said it made her feel younger. Bev always reminded us to relax and enjoy life. She had big dreams but also cherished what she already had. She always accepted people for who they were, she was never one to try and change people. Everyone who knew her, knew she was a rebel through and through. She had the most innocent face but there was that wild streak that drove us crazy. But that’s who she was, and we loved every moment with her. We are so grateful for having her for this long. Ever since she was born she struggled with health problems. She always tried to live her life as a free spirit and now she’s truly free, she’s not suffering anymore.
She will forever be loved and missed by her children, grandchildren, her mom, sisters, brother, nieces, nephews, and all that knew her.
