While studying for her RN at Ellis School of Nursing, the students were recruited by the US Army to serve as Cadet Nurses at Bellevue Hospital in NY City, to provide care to the soldiers returning from the European Front during World War II.
Upon graduating with her RN, and the end of the War, Beverly returned to Schenectady where she was married and raised three children. A very devoted and loving mother, Beverly was able to balance motherhood while still pursuing her career as an RN. Beverly worked as an RN and at times Head Nurse at Ellis Hospital for 32 years.
Although always a dedicated nurse, Beverly always expressed that her greatest joy was raising her three children. Beverly always loved the outdoors and nature, and took us children, camping and swimming, and she loved to garden and travel in her later years.
