She’s my aunt bev always I love her with all my heart and whenever I go to the ocean I will think of her. I would go to her house and spend nights with when she came to get me we would always stop to get ice cream on the way home her house was my second home I had my toothbrush left at her house for when I spent the night . We would take rides to the ocean , go out to eat , she would tell me story’s of her and when I was little , she told me no matter what I will always be her baby girl . Once when she was in the hospital when I was little I sat right in her bed with her and didn’t leave her side my mom left to go to the store or something and I stayed with her . I miss her and will always remember and love her I miss are shopping Trips , long car rides , Christmas . Everything 🥺❤️

I was so saddened by the news of Beverly's passing. ,I have had to refrain from attending the services today with great dismay due to the weather and further storms expected today. I had planned to be with you to express my condolences to you (the family) at this time.... .Beverly will be sadly missed by us all . I will always remember her quick wit and kind words of wisdom for us all. Thanksgiving was not Thanksgiving without going to Aunt Elsie's and enjoying the Feast of Feasts and the popcorn balls.....oh so good. The quiet times of a ride to the beach to sit by the ocean and reminisce and chat about our younger years. We always had wonderful times and i will miss her dearly as I know each of you will. We now have another Guardian Angel to watch over us from above .

My thoughts and Prayers are with You All today and always...May God Bless You and Keep You in His Tender Loving Care now and always to give you the strength and faith to carry on as she would want us to do. Love one another ... Hug one another.
Love ,
Carol Crane (cousin) .

How well I remember Beverly’s infectious smile and hearty laugh! My first three years of teaching were at the Consolidated School in Kennebunkport, and the staff, there, were so supportive. “Beve”, especially, made me feel so welcome. Carol Hamalainen

She was always Aunt Bev to me ,even though she was really my cousin,I will miss her joyful attitude and sense of humor,And I will always be grateful for her words of wisdom she shared with me during a difficult time a few years ago. We will miss our short visits with Bev,whenever we take a ride up to Maine. Our sympathy to all her family members, I know she will be missed. Ann Medeiros and David.
