On August 22, 1933, amid the Great Depression, Beverly was born in Dupree, South Dakota. Bev was a kind and giving person who made friends quickly and had a lot of close friends for life.
She went to school in Montana’s Corvallis. In the Spokane Valley, she spent the majority of her life. She enjoyed spending her retirement years with numerous friends at her house in the Cascade Manufactured Home Park.
She spent her final days living at Avamere South Assisted Living before passing away on March 20, 2023, at Faith Adult Family Home, a full-service private facility.
She received warm, welcoming, and exceptional treatment in both locations.
The Babcocks were Beverly’s parents, Edward and Hazel. Bev was close to her sister-in-law Doris and had one brother, Keith, who died before her. She is survived by her Hamilton, Montana-based nephew Joseph Babcock.
From middle school through high school, Bev studied in Corvallis, Montana. Mary Bly, a close friend of hers for life, was her teammate when they played tennis. After high school, she relocated to Spokane, where she studied bookkeeping at Kinman Business School.
She later worked for the Spokesman-Review, Trudeau’s Marina, and for a while, Women at Large as a part-owner. She worked as Trinity Catholic School’s bookkeeper from 1992 until her retirement in 2005.

She participated actively in St. John Vianney Parish as an advisor on the parish council.
Bev enjoyed hanging out with friends, watching the Gonzaga basketball team, the Seahawks, and the Mariners, going to the casino, and playing bingo.
She always had cats or dogs because she liked animals. Punky and Buttons, her two orange tabby cats, made it through her.
