Memories Timeline


  1. Bev was my mother’s neighbor for many years. She was a warm and fun lady and I was saddened to hear of her passing. My condolences to her entire family and friends. She will be missed by many.

  2. Bev was a beautiful person inside and out! She was my neighbor and dear friend for more than 20 years. I will ways remember her many kindnesses to me as well as the good meals that she fed me. I feel very fortunate to have known her and had her in my life for so many years. May she rest in peace. My sincere sympathy to Bev’s children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

  3. I spent lots of time at Bev’s farm south of Kindred growing up. Bev was such a good host, and made sure we were well fed and kept somewhat out of trouble. When she volunteered at Innovis, I would see her at the info desk on occasion, and it was fun catching up with her. Bev was a great lady, always in a good mood and always looked so sharp!

  4. My Sympathy to Loree, Peggy, Dean, Rick, Mark and Families,
    I feel like I know you even though I have not met all of you. Your Mom was so proud of her family. She would often show me pictures of everyone. We had Grandchildren born a day apart,
    Brandon and Cassie.
    I met Bev through Carol Bohlken, whom I had just met and who had recently just met your Mom. We were in the same neighborhood. We spent many years as friends in Fargo. Gosh, I remember so many good times getting together with other friends, going to dances, parties and many good meals at each others homes. What good memories that We will never forget!
    I am relieved for everyone that her struggle with Alzheimer’s has come to an end and has now begin her eternal life with her God.
    RIP, Bev, our beautiful Friend,
    Love and Prayers,
    BJ and Jim Jacobson
