" I was so sorry to hear of Bev?s passing and wish to extend my sympathy to her family and friends. Gene and Bev were such a blessing for our family and were always there to help in any way they could, taking care of our children and helping us move so many times. She will be greatly missed by the Huff family."
"My heart felt sympathies to Beverly?s family. I remember my cousin had the most beautiful red hair and the kindness she always showed to others. You?re in my heart.

"Beverly, Although we lived miles apart I always looked forward to your Christmas Cards. I?m so glad we shared our conversation via a card for many Christmas seasons. I will miss you. Thanks to you & Gene?s kindness to my parents, Ann & Bill, your Aunt & uncle.
God?s blessings to your family & our heartfelt sympathy to them all.
Your cousin Henrietta & husband Charles Volk."
"So sorry to hear this. I met Beverly working at Algona Plumbing and Heating. Very nice lady and enjoyed our visits at the plumbing shop!"
"Bev, missing you. I stopped by Monday night to check on you and see if you could use any of the coronavirus supplies I picked up on the way home from work. You didn't open the kitchen door like usual. A while later Kevin told me you died that morning. I wish I had known you were sick, I could/would have spent time with you in the morning before work. I could have had the chance to tell you one more time how important you are. I'm sorry. I miss you, your smile, conversation, hugs. You are loved."
"So sorry to hear of Beverly?s passing. She was a thoughtful and caring neighbor to my parents. Blessings to her family. Helen Skow Scuffham"
"So sad to hear of this. Bev was a very good friend to my aunt who was her neighbor. My aunt so enjoyed Bev coming over and reading the Bible to her. I?m so sorry for your loss."
"Was saddened to see this. Bev and Gene were our neighbors out on the farm, when we were first married. Both such kind and quiet people, and very generous with their time. I enjoyed visiting with Bev whenever I would see her out and about. I?m sure she is rejoicing being reunited with Gene. We will always remember them fondly."
"The TLC Quilters are heartbroken... Bev was always such a ray of sunshine for all of us! She worked very hard and loved what she did. There are sew many little ones and those of all ages that have been blessed by a quilt that Bev worked on, her love and prayers neatly tucked inside never to be seen, just felt. Her bright smile, her sweet laugh and her wonderful hugs will be very much missed by all us... Bev will always be with us, she, just like her quilts with her love and prayers will be forever tucked within the TLC Quilters hearts...not to be seen but felt...forever, what a gift..."
