    We are so very sorry to learn our dear friend, and fellow classmate, has passed away. We have known Bev since 1950. Went to grade school and high school together. She was one of my best friends. Some of us “girls” would go on vacation trips together. Yes, Bev always ordered her dessert first and didn’t share. She loved her desserts. The last time we saw Bev was when met at the Cracker Barrel in Wesley Chapel, Florida. Her brother, Douglas, drove her to meet us. Judy Jones was there too. Bev did whisper to me that she had Dementia. Going to miss her so much. Gail & Willis Dahn.

    May God give Peace and Comfort to you, Susan, Sara and family. Your Mom and Dad are together again at last. We always enjoyed visiting your mom! She was always happy and full of life! During one of our visits to Crete a few years back, we drove around town while she did a running narrative of who lived and/or had lived in each house on street after street. Your comment “Remember to eat your dessert first!” brought happy tears of many memories of eating out with her! HUGS to all of you! Wish we could there today for the funeral.

    Much love to you all from the Johnsons in Arizona. I called her “Aunt Bev” as a kid because the concept of a 3rd cousin didn’t compute in my brain as a kid! Now she is with Uncle Ralph, Uncle Curtis and my dad Dave Johnson probably standing on her head and laughing. All good memories of her and you all. Sue, call anytime. Love you all–Matt and Deb
