Bev was a smiling face at the Holliston Superette deli counter for over 20 years where she loved her work family, who were all so good to her. She was a great crafter who could whip up scrubbies, costumes and pinatas in no time. She loved trips to Disney and spending time with family. Visits from her grandkids were so special to her and she enjoyed every minute. Beverly is predeceased by five siblings; brother, William, and sisters, Fran, Elaine, Betty, and Dottie.
