She would read updates about them in the paper and have her TV on ready to go when they played. If you talked bad about them, especially her Chiefs, while she was trying to watch them she would be sure to let you have it. Her and Joe moved back to the Richmond, Missouri area in 2004 to be closer to old friends and especially old friends from church where they once raised their kids. Beverly was baptized into Christ when she was 19 years old. Her true devotion was being a faithful Christian. Praying and studying her Bible and listening to sound gospel preaching. Whether it was in church or just gathered with a few Christian friends she loved singing spiritual songs. When traveling she still wanted to stop and gather with other Christians on the Lord's Day to remember her Savior's death by partaking of the Lord's Supper and to praise God. She also loved to be in Bible class teaching the little children back when her health allowed. She loved her family and friends, but especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren who she thought the world of.
