During her teen to early adult years she was an accomplished roller skater earning a bronze medal.

In addition to serving alongside her husband Charles as a pastor’s wife, Beverly’s home was filled with artistic expression that she shared with her family. Beverly had a creative and artistic heart. She spent many years sewing and hand crafting clothing and decorations for her home and family. She later expanded her creativity to painting and music. Beverly painted on canvas, ceramic pottery, fabrics and even her cupboards.

In her later years she participated regularly in The Range Country Show, a local community music production put on monthly in Northern Minnesota. Beverly enjoyed singing and would spend many hours practicing with friends and family. For many years Beverly also enjoyed opening her home to church friends and family.
