Bev will be greatly missed by her 6 children, 15 grandchildren, 24 great grandchildren, and sister-in-law Carol Welch.
Bev had a love for music, painting, baking, crafting and knitting newborn hats for Children's Hospital. She made a point to always help anyone with whatever she could. Her love of life was evident in the way she lived. Bev had a special gift of not only seeing the good in people, but also in bringing out the best in them.
