Bev was born in Hunter, ND by a midwife in 1935 to Carl W. and Agnes E. (Wedberg) Carlson. They lived and farmed near Gardner. She graduated from Interstate Business College, Fargo, ND. Bev worked at Gardner Farmers Elevator, the ASCS Office in Fargo, 8 years at St. Luke’s Hospital in the Pharmacy Department, and worked at the Boy Scouts of America office in Fargo for 26 years until her retirement. Throughout the years, Bev enjoyed crafting, shopping, and always the challenge of being able to make something out of nothing. She made many friends at the local auction sales she attended. Bev loved watching her grandchildren in many school and sport activities. She especially enjoyed playing with Trey, her great-grandson. After she moved to Hillsboro, she spent a great deal of time with Hannah and Logan, and thoroughly enjoyed their busy schedules. She also helped with trimming duties at First Choice Apparel. She earned the award of best garment folder! Throughout her life she was always willing and eager to help friends, neighbors, and especially her family. Her kindness will be greatly missed.
