A loving wife and mother, she taught in the Jessamine County Schools District for 10 years, after which she traveled extensively with Maurice ministering in short-term mission work. She had a special love for the ministry of her friends, John and Theba Gollapalli, to tribal and orphan children in India.

In 1994, Beverly authored a book of her personal experiences in ministry called Passport to Joy. She was a member of the Nicholasville United Methodist Church at the time of her death. She is survived by her three children, six grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
