Her family was the most important part of her life. Beverly enjoyed culture, teaching art in grammar school and playing the piano. She spent many years serving on the Board of the Bridgeport Symphony Orchestra and dedicated endless hours of service to the Bridgeport Hospital Auxiliary. Her love of music, fashion, travel and antiques embodied her. She also loved to cook and garden and enjoyed spending a few months a year delighting the city of Boston with her smile and Lilly Pulitzer dresses.
