We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Roy
Beverly Evans Grover passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of August 7, 2022, surrounded by her loved ones, including those we couldn't see.
She was born December 9, 1936 in Castle Dale, Utah to Jasper "Jack" Tatton and Jean Marie Petersen. Beverly and her younger brother, Ronald, grew up in the coal-mining town of Kenilworth, Utah. The family later moved to California where Beverly attended junior high and high school.
She met Richard Neil Evans in California and the two returned to Clinton, Utah to be married in 1956. They continued to reside in Brentwood, California while Neil finished his last year at UCLA. During that time, they had their first son, Wesley. They moved to Orem, Utah and had another son, Lorin and daughter, Teresa. In 1970 they moved to Clinton, Utah as Neil started his own surplus aircraft business, Evans Aircraft.
While she held several interesting jobs in her life, such as a secretary at the California regional stock exchange, the job she enjoyed most was being at home and supporting her kids in their many adventures.
Beverly loved a good bargain and finding treasures for her family, and Deseret Industries was the perfect place to find both. It gave her such joy to be able to bring smiles to the faces of her kids, and later grandkids, with the treasures she would find there.
Beverly and Neil divorced after 19 years and she later married Gary L. Grover in 1987. They resided in Garland, Utah and enjoyed camping - trailer style! She lovingly cared for him through their marriage and his battle with Leukemia until he passed away in 2001.
She made it back to Clinton and moved in with her daughter Teresa and her husband Mont in 2013. She wanted to be closer to family and get back to her favorite job of participating in all of the adventures - this time as the grandma and great-grandma. She was affectionally known as "Gammy."
"I think my greatest time of my life is being involved with and watching my grandchildren and great-grandchildren grow up to be exceptional individuals."
Beverly was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She held many callings, some of her favorites were: Nursery Leader, Visiting Teacher, and Humanitarian Specialist (her most favorite). She spent countless hours sewing for many humanitarian projects. Her whole life has been centered around helping and serving others, and her callings only magnified her selfless qualities. She had a wonderfully kind heart and always put others' needs before her own.
She was preceded in death by her first husband Neil and second husband Gary; son Wes; and her parents. She is survived by her son Lorin, daughter Teresa Stevenson (Mont); 8 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and brother Ronald.
There will be a graveside service for immediate family members on Friday August 12, 2022. Friends and family are invited to gather at a Celebration of Life on Sunday August 21, 2022 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM at the Clinton Stake Center located at 1448 W. 1800 N. Clinton, Utah.
In lieu of flowers, Beverly would love for you to go out and have an adventure with your family. Seriously, she really didn't like getting flowers.
"I'm not afraid of dying as I believe this is only a small step in our eternal progression but I sure don't like the thought of missing being part of my family's lives and seeing them progress."
