Beverly was a proud graduate of Geneva College class of 1944, often reciting her alma maters’ fight song to her grandchildren. She continued into graduate studies at University of Pittsburgh focusing in biology.

In 1946, Beverly met Charles J. Loll and the two quickly fell in love marring on October 23, 1946. While Charles earned his CPA credentials and licensure, Beverly taught science at Freedom High School and later Hopewell High School. Students of Beverly recall that she was a fair and generous teacher – spending time helping her students grasp the material.
Beverly throughout her life had a deep passion for education and was a prolific reader. She often had a book in hand. Throughout her life Beverly was also involved in her community – she was a woman who valued the importance of bringing people together. She would often reach out to her neighbors and provided what help she could – be it a heartfelt conversation over tea or a shoulder to lean on. Beverly was also an avid camper; traveling throughout the country with her family. Although she was notoriously not a fan of cooking and cleaning.
Beverly will be remembered by her family, friends, and loved ones as the kind-hearted, compassionate and clever woman she was. Memories of her sharp wit along with her devotion to family will be shared by those who mourn her passing.
A private ceremony was held in honor of her final wishes.
