Beverly had many hobbies. She really enjoyed gardening and taking care of her house plants. She loved cooking for family and making her famous fried chicken. She would have fried chicken everyday if she could. She enjoyed baking and would spend many hours during the holidays to ensure that her children, grandchildren and friends received a Tupperware dish full of cookies. Beverly would also make her famous pepperoni rolls to share with her family. Lastly, Beverly enjoyed sitting down and making quilts by hand. She ensured that each of her loved ones received a quilt, and this will be something that will be cherished by her family from generation to generation. We will miss her food and baking but most of all we will miss her.
