December 9, 2008 UPDATE from Cathy Nicholls Coyle
John and I attended the Memorial Service for Beverly Warner Richards today. It was a very nice, heartfelt service. The following is an excerpt that her brother Courtlandt (Corky) Warner (BHS '62) wrote on her Memorial program:
"Beverly N. Richards was a resident of Burbank since birth. She graduated from Burbank High School and USC. Beverly was a dental hygienist for 25 years and held a patient relations/accounting position at Burbank Hearing Clinic (owned by her brother Corky) for 12 years. Beverly is survived by son, Chad, daughter, Kara, five grandchildren and two brothers, Joseph and Courtlandt Warner. Beverly was a devoted daughter, sister, mom, wife, grandma, mother-in-law, friend and employee. She loved her family. She will be remembered for her vibrant and compassionate personality. She had the most beautiful and engaging smile. She loved to give and receive a warm hug. As an optimist she fought to overcome her set backs. She understood God's love for her and allowed God's love to shine through her."
Rest in Peace Bev.
May the Lord bless Bev's family during this difficult time of loss. Below is an email from Pam and Jon Kirkwood:
