Beverly cherished being retired and spending time with her granddaughter, Taylor and other loved ones.

She was a communicant of Saint Augustine’s and participated in volunteer work for the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants. She enjoyed completing the daily crossword puzzle and her mid-morning walks. Most of all, she loved travelling, particularly visiting her family cabin in Vermont.

Beverly was of kind and giving spirit who gave selflessly of herself to help others.

She was predeceased by her mother and father, Jack and Lois Graber, her brother Gary Graber, and her niece Becky Graber.

Helen and I are so saddened by Bev's passing. She was always so upbeat and happy, with a truly infectious smile. We are most appreciative that she and Jeff gave us such a wonderful and talented son-in-law. It is particularly sad that we will never have the opportunity to get to know her even better, as we were looking forward to many years of combined family activities ahead. Man plans, God laughs. Rest in Peace Bev.
