I met Bev in 1980, when we moved to the neighborhood. She and Doyle quickly became good friends. She was a genuine farmer's wife and she loved every moment of it. The farm life seem to fit her so well. Her love of dogs and cats and wildlife in general helps to explain her sweet nature. It wasn't surprising to walk in the house for coffee and there would be new pups or kittens (birds!) in the kitchen. It was always fun listening to her talk about all the animals she & Doyle had collected over the years. We will miss her.
