Beverly was an ER nurse working the night shift in Houston for over 30 years. Starting at Alief General Hospital, she went on to work at Rosewood Hospital and eventually retiring from West Houston Medical Center. She loved nursing and the countless doctors and nurses with whom she got to work with. She had a great sense of humor that was a requirement for working in the ER and her stories of ER patients were both funny and educational at times. Beverly loved dogs, especially poodle(s), her latest named Ginger, and had a rescue dog named Harry. She also dearly loved Alaska. Alaska was the only place she would vacation and had a special love for going to Turnagain Arm and watching the Bore Tide from Beluga Point.
