At the age of four, the family moved to Goodlettsville, Tennessee. It was here, at a place out in the country, and at this age, that Beverly asked Jesus to come into her heart and save her. When Beverly was sixteen, the family moved to San Bernardino, California and she graduated high school at the age of seventeen.
Beverly went on to Bible College in Cost Mesa, California and then to San Bernardino State University where she took classes in Home Economics. Following this, she went to Pasadena College for a year. After college, at the age of twenty, she traveled to the Apache Reservation in San Carols, Arizona to see her parents.
Lee Clark, a young man she had met earlier, has just finished his tour of duty in the United States Air Force, and came to see her at the reservation. When he saw Beverly, he knew she was “the one”. They married on November 7, 1952. He preceded her in death on April 15, 2008.
In 1961, Beverly and Lee adopted their son, Martin Reid Clark and in 1963, they adopted their daughter, Michelle Lorraine Clark. Beverly and Lee went into the insurance business in San Bernardino, California and were in business for all their working years.
Beverly’s son, Martin, passed away on September 28, 2001 and her sister, Bonnie also preceded her in death.
In 1988, Beverly moved to Lake Kickapoo, Texas and lived there for twenty-six years. In 2012, she moved to Archer City. In 2018, Beverly and her daughter, Michelle moved to Midwestern Health Care Center in Wichita Falls.
Survivors include, her daughter, Michelle of Wichita Falls; two grandchildren, Matthew Reid Clark and Brianna Elizabeth Clark McNair; and two great-grandchildren.
It was the desire of Beverly’s heart to live for the Lord. She always said that she didn’t want to miss what God had placed her here to do.
