    Bev was so kind to her neighbor lady (my friend), when she lived in Buffalo. She loved doing good things for people♡

  3. Beth Biskup

    I loved the year I picked up Bev for Awanas. She always had a bag of cookies ready for me, even though she knew it wasn’t necessary. She was such a blessing to me as she always had a smile and kind words.

    Well done good and faithful servant, you will be missed.

    I was so fortunate to know Bev my whole childhood. She and Art would have my sisters and I over once a month and we’d paint, play at the park, eat Pizza Hut, and read books through the library. I also remember playing with some of her grandkids once in awhile. It became less frequent as I got older and became involved in school activities, but I still remember going over in high school and heading into the basement or the front room and getting the paintbrushes out.

    I am so thankful to have known her, Art, and Bandit.

    I’m so sorry for your loss.

    Deb,so sorry to hear of your mothers passing.met your mother just a few times and remember her as a very kind lady. I knew your Dad and Doug quite well as they took us up in the plane to check things out! Brother Jim and I think of them often. They were all wonderful people!

  6. Roger and Melanie Reiners

    Roger and I offer our sincere sympathy to Deb and the entire family. We so loved the times we spent with Art and Bev, even making the trip to Sierra Leone when we didn’t realize he was already ill. Bev was a wonderful role model to so many people sharing her love for her Lord and Savior wherever she went. God bless your precious memories of your mom, grandma and great-grandma.
