Beverly was born in Marysville, Kansas on January 11, 1954 to Jerome and Lois Lueers, and grew up on the Homestead Farm south of Herkimer, Kansas. She enjoyed raising calves and becoming a 4-H fair prize-winning knitter. Graduating from Marysville High School in 1972, she attended KSU where she honed her mechanical engineering skills and spent summers working at the old Marshall County Courthouse. In 1976 she graduated and worked for Southwestern Bell Telephone Company where she was exposed to the latest in video call technology and became an area manager supporting the field techs starting in Hutchinson, Wichita and finally in Topeka. Her ability to troubleshoot and solve problems was cherished at the company. As Southwestern Bell became AT&T, an early retirement allowed her to pursue other interests. As a philanthropist and avid animal lover, her constant array of dogs and cats enjoyed her love and attention, leading to support for the Northeast Kansas Animal Welfare Foundation. She remained active with Kansas State University and the Jerome Lueers Cancer Research Fund, providing scholarship opportunities for students studying cancer research. As a member of the church council at Lowman United Methodist Church she cooked meals before the Wednesday night service and planted a memory garden. Her faith inspired her to research medical healing and seek healing head to toe from God in her battle with cancer. Beverly enjoyed work projects on her home and knitting hats and sweaters for friends and charity. As scorekeeper and head cheerleader for the Topeka Horseshoe Association, she became a most ardent fan of Earl Romine. She was preceded in death by her parents; and sister, Nancy Lueers. Beverly is survived by 5 cats, a dog named Ima, and brother Jim Lueers of Pittsburgh, PA. Donations are suggested to the Northeast Kansas Animal Welfare Foundation or the Jerome Lueers Cancer Research fund at KSU. Contributions may be sent in care of Kinsley Mortuary, Marysville.
