Beverly Jean Godfrey - wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother passed from her earthly life to her eternal life on June 18th 2023. She was born on October 13th, 1930 in Prairie Village, Kansas. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Duane, of 64 years. Beverly and Duane were high school sweethearts and married March 17th, 1951. As newlyweds, Duane served in the United States Air Force for the next 4 years they were relocated to live in Hawaii. Their son Duane Jr. was born in Hawaii during that time.

Beverly and Duane were long members of Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church. Beverly was able to witness her daughter married there, the baptism of her two granddaughters Jordan and Ryanne, and the baptism of her two great grandsons Tripp and Ford.

When their children were young, Duane and Beverly enjoyed many camping trips to Colorado. “MeMe” and “Papa” purchased a lake house at Cedar Creek Lake, where countless weekends spent and great memories made. After Duane’s retirement, they traveled to Europe and took several cruises including Greece, Alaska and Hawaii. On their 50th wedding anniversary the entire family went on a Caribbean cruise to celebrate!

Beverly had many hobbies throughout her life. She was an avid bridge player, a Red Hatter and played a mean game of tennis! She was an accomplished painter and well known for her ocean scenes painted on Sand Dollars. Beverly was invited many times into the prestigious Cottonwood Art festival to display her art. Her favorite group of friends were called “The Seven Sisters” which was her quilting group that met every Wednesday night from 1982 to 2015. They were a very special group of ladies, who bonded like a sisterhood, and took several weekend trips together!

She is survived by her son Duane, her daughter Cheryl Lewis and husband Hal; granddaughter Jordan Watson and husband Mat; great grandson’s Tripp, Ford, and Miller; granddaughter Ryanne Lewis.

Her Celebration of Life will be held on July 21, 2023 at 10:00 in the morning at The Wildwood Chapel at Restland Funeral Home, Dallas, Texas.

Beverly was a devoted wife who loved her family, friends and life unconditionally. We will miss that cute smirky smile of hers!
