    I was shocked and sadened to hear just today 9/16/23 that my Godmother and namesake had passed away. What a beautiful long life. She was a force and a guiding light all of my life. My parents Bob and Charlotte Crouse always said there would not be a saint Beverly until she took her place in heaven. I extend my deapest sympathy to the Nieberding children and their beautiful large family. A legacy to respect from Ken and Bev.

    My Mom Doris Reeves was Beverly’s college friend. After Mom died in 2011, I exchanged notes with Beverly for several years. I am so sad to hear of her passing. What a beautiful life and legacy.
