San Francisco Chronicle - Late Edition (Sunday) - - LIFE TRIBUTES -

Dr. Bev­erly Thomas passed away peace­fully at her home from nat­u­ral causes; thanks to the de­vo­tion of her lov­ing hus­band, Richard Traxler. Bev­erly was 83.

Dr. Thomas was a fam­ily prac­tice doc­tor for 50 years. She re­ceived her Doc­tor of Medicine from the Univer­sity of Wis­con­sin in 1961. She was one of only 6 women grad­u­ates in her class of 100. Bev­erly was de­ter­mined to suc­ceed even though she was told in grade school and col­lege that she couldn’t do it.

Dr. Thomas, an in­tu­itive, in­sight­ful, at­ten­tive pro­fes­sional chose fam­ily prac­tice be­cause she loved car­ing for mul­ti­ple gen­er­a­tions within a fam­ily. She main­tained a solo fam­ily prac­tice in San Ma­teo County for 50 years.

Bev­erly is re­mem­bered for her calm, com­pas­sion­ate and car­ing na­ture for her fam­ily, friends, pa­tients and an­i­mals alike. Her rep­u­ta­tion as a skilled physi­cian is echoed through­out the com­mu­nity from her loyal pa­tients who would change in­sur­ance just to keep her.

As a breast can­cer sur­vivor she was re­silient, hard work­ing and main­tained her un­wa­ver­ing ded­i­ca­tion to her fam­ily and prac­tice.

Bev­erly is sur­vived by her de­voted hus­band of 43 years, Richard. A lov­ing mother to three sons-their wives, daugh­ter-hus­band, 12 grand­chil­dren, nieces and neph­ews.

A memo­rial ser­vice will be held at 11:00 a.m. Tues­day, Novem­ber 6 at Sky­lawn, High­way 92 at Sky­line Blvd., San Ma­teo, CA 94402. Memo­rial ser­vice de­tails and more about Bev­erly can be found at www.sky­lawn­memo­ri­al­park.com
