During her life she worked for the Natrona County Health Department. She also used her talents in the offices of Dr. Harland Meyers, Dr. Rowan Tichenor, and at the Wyoming Medical Center.
She loved being outside in the sunshine, and spent most of her time out in the garden. She always had a fishing pole down at the river with a worm from the garden. You could hear her across the river calling the dogs in with her trademarks. She loved taking walks with Scott and the dogs.
Her grandkids were the light of her life. Every one of them had many a sink bath and she would do just about anything to make them happy. She loved cooking with Nevaeh and could cook about everything. Watching the boys play outside brought her many happy days.
Bev also loved being on the beach. Many summer weekends she took her kids and grandkids to Alcova. She also loved her Mexico trips. She always had a special spot with a book listening to the tide.
Bev started working at the Casper Natrona County Health Department in January 1998. She worked over the years in the Maternal Child Health department and the Disease Prevention Clinic.
