Beverlee’s Story

Site created on May 7, 2019

The journaling below continues.  I realize that just when people might want to reach out to either Mark or myself to offer condolences, I removed any address information by which you might contact us.  So, to correct that:

Mark Everett, 18 Foster Lane, Downingtown, PA 19335 - email - - birthday 9/23

Matthew Everett, 1802 10th Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55404 - email - - birthday 8/26

Mark is in the process of cleaning out the house to put it on the market, and then find a smaller place of his own.  This will be a process over the coming year.  As his contact information changes, I will update it here.  For now, that's where we are if you want to keep in touch.

Thanks to everyone who's been resourceful so far in contacting us anyway, either through those avenues or online venues like this one.  We really appreciate your memories and thoughts of Mom and your words of support.  It helps us feel less alone in this process of starting a new life without her.

There will be a more permanent update to the "Beverlee's Story" introductory part of this page in the coming days.

If you want to make some sort of recognition of Beverlee, in lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Beverlee's name to one of the following:

Baptist Church of West Chester -
Sue Hegarty, Baptist missionary in Costa Rica -
Encuentro Ministries - a ministry that provides pastoral care, coaching, training and resources to church planters, pastors, and Latino churches in Latin America, USA and Spain - for donations, please contact Rev. Carlos Dario Peralta, Encuentro Ministries, 6526 Old Brick Road, Suites 120-331, Windermere FL 34786, phone 321-323-9161,

These were where Beverlee made the bulk of her charitable giving.

UPDATE 7/1/2019 - 7:57am
She's gone.

For all intents and purposes she just never woke up. Died in her sleep. Which is, in its own way, a blessing.

So now, all the details. More when we know more.

Thanks to everyone for all your kindnesses and support these last couple of months. They meant a lot to the whole family.

Hug your loved ones. Take care of each other.

Journal entry by Matthew Everett

Today’s project was to find the music from the Christmas musical The Hopes and Fears of All the Years. I thought it was already loaded on my computer, but it wasn’t. Found the disc easily on the first try (phew). Got it loaded before going to work. Then at lunch I labeled all the tracks.

And realized this one’s going to be a little tricky. Because one of the plot lines is about the family’s first Christmas after the father’s unexpected death just a few months earlier. Even listening to the opening strains of any of the songs brings on a flood of memories and emotions.

I only have to email the music tracks to my Walking Shadow friends, not immerse myself in the music. Still...
