I knew Bev for over 60 years. She was an amazing, friendly and warm lady with a great heart. She was a wonderful neighbor, the best. I am so happy to have shared some time with her and have so many great memories of her. Of course, after Chick passed away Bev had a difficult time with her memory and mood and when she arrived at Silverado, she seemed to find a measure of peace and happiness again. It was so good to see her feeling calmer and relaxed again in spite of her condition. Paul and David, you and your families took great care of her. My condolences to all her wonderful extended family. Love to you all, Betty

Paul and David,
I was so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. Beverly was a wonderful, wonderful woman and will always hold a special place in my heart. She was such a part of the fabric of my childhood in Utah. I smiled at the idea of her reunion in heaven with those who parted before her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. xoxo

Dear Davie & Paul,
I’m sad that I haven’t been able to tell you in person how much I loved your Mother. Wynn and I are out of town for a special aunt’s funeral.
In 1988 I asked Bev to be my counselor in the Ensign Stake Primary Presidency. At the time, I didn’t live in the 4th Ward and didn’t really know her, but of course, I’d heard wonderful things about her. I absolutely loved getting acquainted with Bev and working together! Her ‘over the top’ stash of treasures and visual aids was put to good use in the stake’s six primaries. She was always willing to help and her ideas and experience were invaluable. In 2000 we remodeled a house on Northcliffe so have been in Bev’s ward since then.
Bev and I both loved to play tennis and I have sweet memories of picking her up several times to play with my group of women. It was visiting as usual and then she was focused on winning–great competitor and into serious fun/competition!!
The last time I visited Bev she was busy feeding and making sure the 3 men at her small table got their vegetables–serving and focused to the end!
I loved Bev and was honored to be her friend.

Ed and I are saddened to read of Beverely’s passing.
She was always so gracious when we would come and visit everyone in the Keeley Family.

Mrs. Reed, was my Kindergarten teacher from 1982 to 1983 at Woods Cross Elementary School. I didn’t realize how long she taught school! I remember her class like yesterday and remember how nervous I was the first day going to her class. That nervousness didn’t last long though. I remember learning alot and having fun and playing in her class at age 5.
She was a special person to handle teaching young children as long as she did. Thank you Mrs. Reed for for your service and dedication to teaching and for your good and kind spirit!
