     Bev was a woman of faith who attended the St. Anthony Parish in Cumberland. She was a loving, kind, and generous woman who cherished her family above all else. Bev especially loved being a grandma! Her faith in God and her loving family were the driving forces in her life, particularly during her final chapter.
     Bev worked at the Cumberland Hospital for 30+ years as an account clerk. It was there where she met many friends. She enjoyed spending time in her garden and flower beds tending her gladiolus. Bev often went on walks with her family, friends, and her dogs. She also enjoyed watching the Green Bay Packers and Badgers. Bev loved cooking for family and friends and spending time on the lake. Like her parents, Bev devotedly watched Wheel of Fortune on a nightly basis and relished traveling throughout North America.

     Funeral services were held Thursday, April 29, 2021, at St. Anthony Catholic Church with Father Tom Thompson officiating. Burial was in St. Anthony Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, Bev would ask that you consider making a donation to the American Melanoma Foundation in her honor. A special thank you to Dr. Markovic and the staff at the Mayo Clinic, Dr. Carlson and the staff at Cumberland Healthcare, the St. Croix Hospice staff, and Father Tom Thompson.
