Beverly was beautiful inside and out. An accomplished pianist who could play anything from a concerto to ragtime, she was Miss Louisville in the Ms. Kentucky beauty pageant. She loved watching Jeopardy and would blurt out the question while you were still processing the answer. She loved her many cats in her life: Odyssey, Cujo, Alex, Woody, and Sophie. She loved musicals. But what brought her the most joy in life was being a mother and grandmother. Interment was at Riverview Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to the Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton or Temple Israel.
