On Mother’s Day, May 14, 2023, Beverly Rue Douglas, age 73, of Brownsville, PA, transitioned to an eternal life of peace with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The Scripture in 2nd Corinthians 5:8 tells us “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord”. She is now resting in peace in her Heavenly home.
Beverly was preceded in death by her loving grandmother, whom she called mom, Rebecca Berry Douglas.
Born on April 7, 1950, Beverly was raised in Allison, PA and was a graduate of Brownsville Area High School. Soon after graduating, she moved to Washington, D.C. and became a civil servant, working for the Federal Government’s United States Information Agency.
God blessed Beverly with many gifts. She spent much of her time drawing, writing poems, and singing. As a young child she sang in the choir at Community Baptist Church in Allison, PA and in the last few years she sang with the Praise and Worship Team at Confirming Word Ministries in Masontown, PA.
Beverly also had a great sense of humor, she loved to laugh and make others laugh too. As the saying goes, “laughter is good for the soul”, and Beverly had a way of making others feel good.
Beverly leaves to mourn her passing her beloved daughter, Erika Shauntai Douglas; two brothers: Reginald Douglas (Valerie) of New Carrolton, MD, and Edward Douglas of Brownsville, PA; nieces: Nicole and Shanae; her confidant and aunt, Constance Douglas; a host of cousins who will also cherish her memory, including Terri Douglas, Geoffrey Douglas, Charles Bush, Kendra Douglas, Anthony Settles, Rendie Settles, Elston Settles, Bruce Douglas, Jr., Walter McKeithan, Donna McKeithan, Janet McKeithan, Devin Douglas, and Branden Douglas, Carol Johnson, Dayton Settles & Sally Smith; special friends: Joy Frye-Thompson, Kathleen Woods, Juanita Harris and Cynthia Hackett.
