Beverly Lane, age 78, passed away peacefully on Dec. 31, 2016.
Born in Kingston on Aug. 11, 1938, to her parents Charles and Mildred Lane, Beverly was a fun-loving child who enjoyed spending her summers back in Kingston with her grandmother and sister. In her adulthood, she would spend her time ironing for people, or assisting in the clean-up of North Court Barbers.
Beverly had a talent for puzzles, able to complete jigsaws with a swift hand and a smile. She also had a love for animals, but especially dogs, with her beloved Fifi as her latest companion.
Beverly also loved children, and children loved her. She had a child-like wonder about her that the kids just loved. She was all-around fun to be around, and she loved to be around people. Beverly looked forward to the Pumpkin Show every year, and she loved stopping at Wittich’s candy shop for a butter pecan milkshake.
Beverly is preceded in death by her parents; her nephew, Kyle Piper; and her brother-in-law, Carl Martin.
Left to mourn her passing is her loving sister, Kay Martin, who was crucial in Beverly’s care; as well as her nieces and nephews, Tammy (Gary) Garner, Mark (Kristy) Martin, Christina Piper, Tony (Kyann) Martin, Carla (Paul) Murray and Holly (Ron) Szymczak; great-nieces and nephews, cousins, many friends and neighbors.
