    Wow! This is such sad news. I loved Miss Bev (her name at Lincoln School). She was one of the first people to help me when I started teaching at Lincoln. I loved being around her, joking with/roasting each other (she toughened me up…which I needed), discussing the NFL (she always tried to get me to convert to becoming a Steelers fan), and pro wrestling (especially The Undertaker). The kids, the parents, the teachers and the administrators all LOVED Miss Bev. She WAS Lincoln School. A true icon of a great school. Miss Bev… You’ll be missed dearly.

    Love,
    Mark Adkins

    We went to Jefferson School, MJHS and MHS. Would go over to her house to play. Spent many hours at Goofy Golf together. She will be missed.
    Prayers for the family at this difficult time.

    Our family loved Miss Bev. She had a way of making each child feel special and even after 20 years, she remembered them. A true angel on earth.

    She was quite the character! What a gal. I’ll always remember her being at Lincoln school, working and helping out any way she could. She always asked about my family when I would see her and how I was doing. She had a heart for that school and the kids. My thoughts and prayers for the family.

    Miss Bev will be missed by so many people. She volunteered countless hours helping out teachers and children alike at Lincoln School, and had such an ability to minister to the needs of others. Please accept my heartfelt sympathies in the passing of such a precious lady. She was a sweet friend and will be remembered by many.
