Educated through the public school system, she would graduate high school with honors in 1982, furthering her education she would enroll in the Southside School of Practical Nursing at Longwood University where she earned her LPN certification in 1983. The pinnacle of her life came on Dec. 16, 1983 with her then husband, Paul Daniel Boyers (Honorably), she gave birth to her son, Paul Daniel II, known to all as “Boone”. 

Later entering the workforce primarily as a caregiver, she served her community at Heritage Hall, Trinity Mission, The Woodland Inc., completing her service with Centra Health at Southside Hospital. Notably her favorite, and last, “job” of all was in the Pulmonary Dept. Southside Hospital under the direction of Dr Sunil Rajan, whom she admired and loved. 

In 2015 ,she and her husband would relocate to Green Bay into a home and mini farm that they constructed together. It is there that she flourished, finding peace and happiness tending to her herb garden and caring for her animals, chicken, a turkey “Albus”, goats, dogs and cats. 

Beverly will be sorely missed by scores of co-workers, nieces, nephews and cousins. Her last worldly hope/wish was for all to get early health screening. 

Memorial contributions may be made to any animal rescue foundation of your choosing in her name. 

As per Beverly’s wishes her service will remain private.
