Bev­erly worked at the West Vir­ginia Univer­sity (WVU) li­brary and the WVU School of Nurs­ing, while her hus­band, Jerry, at­tended the Univer­sity. They moved to Hunt­ing­ton, West Vir­ginia in 1965, and a few years later set­tled in White Plains, MD, where Bev­erly and Jerry lived and raised their fam­ily for over 40 years.
