Beverly Jean Allen Reid

ROY - Beverly Jean Allen Reid passed peacefully away in her home on her sweethearts birthday Friday, June 3, 2011 surrounded by her loving family at the age of Eighty. Bev was born September 20, 1930 in Ogden Utah to Kenneth and Leona Wagstaff Allen; older sister to John K. (Jack) Allen.

Raised in Ogden as a child, Beverly later moved with her family to Sunset where she graduated from Davis High school in 1948. Beverly was sealed to Donald Holt Reid on June 9, 1948 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. They were happily married 55 years; Don passed away in June of 2003.

Beverly was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints serving in many capacities such as Primary President, Young Women's Counselor, Relief Society Counselor, and especially enjoyed serving over 20 years as Home Making Leader in the Roy 2nd Ward.

Beverly was very talented and loved sewing and make crafts. She enjoyed making Christmas gifts for each of her children and grandchildren; and was known to wear many of her hand made clothes. It was often said that she could make something out of nothing. Beverly was fun loving with a keen sense of humor and had the ability to make light of any tough situation. Her and Don enjoyed traveling together and she loved shopping for a bargain.

Bev and Don lived in Roy Utah for over 30 years. It was here where they raised their family of six children and she had many friends that she loved. After Don retired, they moved to Surprise Arizona during the winters where she enjoyed more friendships and returned to Utah for the summer months. Beverly had a zest for life and a love for the people around her. After the passing of her husband Don, she was diagnosed with Inclusion Body Myositis and slowly declined physically, yet continued to enjoy life with friends and family and developed an expertise in genealogy and family history work. Her passion to search out family ancestors brought countless blessings to many and is a great part of her life's legacy.

Beverly is survived by six children, George Allen Reid (McCall Id), Debra (Kenneth) Arave (Roy), Becky Reid (Park City), Chris (Lisa) Reid (Clinton), Tamera Parker (Chris) Bell (Kaysville) and Scot (Shauna) Reid (Logan). She leaves behind 30 grandchildren, 38 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandchild. She is also survived by her brother Jack, brothers' in law Stephen (Pat) Reid, Paul (Colleen) Reid, Stan (Pattie) Reid and a special friend Loren Jensen. Bev was preceded in death by her husband Don, son-in-law Evan Parker, two grandchildren, brother in law Richard Reid and sisters' in law Ila and Carolyn Reid.

Bev wishes to thank those who cared for her in her last years of life; Dr. Johnny Cook, Trudy and Lola along with those at Legacy Village Assisted living.
