Beverly Mae Six, age 77, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2016.
She was born on Nov. 5, 1938, in Hilliard, to the late Joseph and Ruth (Miller) Campbell.
In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her brother, Ronnie Campbell.
She leaves behind to cherish her memory her husband of 56 years, William Six; son, Brad Six; daughters, Brenda (Mike) Stephens and Beth Johnson; grandchildren, Scott Johnson and Samantha (Cody) Adams; nephew, Scott Campbell; and sister-in-law, Virgie Vause.
Bev was retired from the Teays Valley school district where all her children and grandchildren attended grades 1 through 12.
Beverly was the featured star in many Ashville community plays, where she loved to sing, dance and “ham” it up. She was a member of Hedges Chapel outside of Ashville and lived in the same house in Little Walnut down “our” Pine Drive for 51 years. She was also a member of the Lions Auxiliary and mentored the dog 4-H Bow Wow Pals Club.
She collected many things but most notably Campbell’s soup items and was even featured in a local newspaper for this.
She loved Bill and her kids, dogs, Lake Erie, amusement parks, making crafts, traveling (but not flying), making holidays special for her family and making people laugh. We all miss our mother, grandmother and wife, especially at Christmas. But her number one joy was spending time with her grandchildren from the time they were born, living in the house directly next door most of their lives, watching them grow up and become young adults. She truly had a zest for life and has been and will be missed.
Visitation will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 24, 2016, with a memorial service at 5 p.m. at Oliver-Cheek Funeral Home, 420 Main St., Ashville, Rev. Ken Marckel officiating.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions are made to the Heartland Hospice, 116 Morris Rd., Circleville, OH 43113; or the Alzheimer’s site (www.ALZ.org), which is the terrible disease that took her and her brother, Ron’s, minds long before it took their lives. Now she is with him and their parents in a much better place in heaven.
