There were many activities she did to express her creativity including painting classes at Hamilton House with an emphasis on making vibrant still lifes and watercolors. Beverly was happiest when she was doing activities with her friends or family and had many happy times on trips to the beach, hiking or sightseeing with them.

Beverly was an involved, loving, and deeply caring mother to her children Brauna Rosen and Jennifer Edge. She is also survived by her three grandchildren, Alex, Joel and Rebecca.

The family would like to express their gratitude for the excellent care and incredible staff at Hope Health Hulitar Hospice Center. Donations can be made to the Hospice Center at 1085 N Main St, Providence, RI 02904 in memory of Beverly. Please visit
