She sold the business after five years, and she and Virgil traveled the country with a group called Roving Volunteers in Christ’s Service for a year. She became a travel agent for 27 years. She was able to travel the world and loved every minute of it.

Beverly moved to Libby to be near her two sons, granddaughter and family after the death of Virgil. She was a member of the Libby Christian Church and made friends with a wonderful group of ladies.
