Bev is predeceased by her previous spouse Gerald Davis, her son-in-law Michael Cobleigh, and her longtime companion Tom Crowdis.

A devoted mother of five children and an active volunteer in the community, Bev was known for her unwavering dedication to her children and her love for sports. As a long-time resident of Acton, she left an indelible mark on the community with her hard work and selflessness.

In her golden years, Beverly found a new home at the Acton Senior Center, where she was not just a member, but a beacon of energy and enthusiasm. She loved volunteering, participating in numerous workshops, and attending social activities. Beverly was a staunch advocate for the center and the opportunities it offered area seniors.

Beverly's later years were brightened by the companionship of Tom Crowdis, a fellow member of the Acton Senior Center. Their bond transformed her life as they went for drives and walks, and spent countless hours on her back porch, watching birds and simply enjoying each other's company. Their shared meals at the community supper became a cherished tradition. Both Beverly and Tom had a keen interest in history and genealogy, a passion that further deepened their connection.

Beverly's heart was always full when she spoke of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchild. Her love and care wove a strong bond that keeps the family united. The pride in her family is evident in every story she told, every photo she shared. Her legacy lives on in the hearts of those she loved and those who loved her. Beverly's story is a testament to a life well-lived, full of love, laughter, and an enduring spirit.
