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

The one chore I managed to crank out last night after work, and the weekly meeting of the mother loss grief support group, was to send out all the reminder emails for the writing group regulars before I went to bed.  Already have two responders saying they'll be there this morning, so that's a good sign.

I'm the host, which is super useful, because it makes me clean and reorganize the house.  It will force me to shift the boxes and suitcases full of Mom's stuff (with more to follow), into the basement guest room for now.  That, and the writing room, and my bedroom to a certain extent, all need to be reclaimed from the boxes.  But that's a project for Tuesday.  For Monday, I need to get the first floor of the house, and the two bathrooms, ready for guests.

And I need to write something.

Before I left for Dad's funeral, I had a meeting with David, the artistic director of Threshold Theater, about the TV Boyfriend script, and turning it into a two person play.  And of course I printed out a fresh copy to work off of and took the script with me to PA, for all that downtime I was going to have (which never materialized)

Tonight I have a meeting with James, the director of the Threshold production of my play Spellbound, hopefully this spring if the funding comes through.  We're just going to have dinner and talk over the script, see what questions he might have, look at things to potentially revisit for new rewrites.  They want to try and have a public reading of the script sometime in January, to start raising the profile of the upcoming production.  I've got the script in the hands of some friends to read and respond to certain elements.  Need to follow up on that to.

Then get to work.

So that's a positive, forward-looking thing.

Gotta have those.
