Beverly’s love for her God and Jesus Christ was evident in her life. She loved her family and friends with her whole heart. Prayer was the basis of it all. Beverly enjoyed spending time with family and friends. She was known for her stories and remembering many details. Beverly would always want to check up on people, even people she briefly met. She remembered every birthday, phone numbers, dates, and names. She always left a phone call with “God willing.”
Beverly accomplished many goals in her life. Beverly started as a secretary in the Puget Sound shipyard in an admiral’s office. Beverly obtained a degree in applied science, human services from Tacoma Community College in 1999. She also obtained her bachelor of arts degree from Evergreen State College in 2001. Beverly accomplished obtaining her degrees with the loss of her eyesight; which never held her back.
One of her loves is music. She often had smooth jazz playing in her home. She has many pictures with musicians she saw in concert. She remembered every detail of that concert and what songs were played.
Beverly did not let the loss of her eyesight hinder her from contributing to the community of Kitsap County. She offered support to others that are blind in her own community in her nonprofit business: Beverly Independent Blindness. She received a certificate of recognition in her community for being an inspiration and sharing her gift of crochet. Beverly also enjoyed volunteering with The Salvation Army, Cancer Society, and Kitsap area food bank.
