Beverlee Ann Brady, 72, of Kingfisher, passed away and went to be with the Lord, her parents and son Kasey Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019, following a hard-fought battle with leukemia.
Beverlee was born April 21, 1947, in Enid to Boyd “Bud” and Vera Turner of Loyal.
She attended school in Loyal with her younger brother, Ed “Bub” and younger sister Sherri.
She graduated from Loyal with the class of 1965 as valedictorian and she left Loyal to attend business college in Kansas City, Mo. Following graduation, Bev accepted a job with TWA Airlines where she traveled abroad.
Some years later, she returned to Oklahoma where she met and married Kenny Brady.
The couple had two sons: Kennt in 1979 and Kasey in 1982.
The couple later divorced and Bev moved back to Kingfisher with her sons and she began her 33-year career at Pioneer Telephone Cooperative, retiring in 2014.
Bev’s boys kept her very busy for many years with various sports activities. She was always their biggest fan and never missed an event to cheer on her boys.
Everyone that met Bev learned that she was a vocal person who always spoke her mind. You knew where you stood with Bev.
On Oct. 16, 2004, Kennt Married Jennifer Oppel and Bev happily welcomed her daughter-in-law to the family. In 2008, after Bev’s requests and wishes, she was blessed with her fi rst granddaughter, Katelynn (Katie).
This filled Bev with much joy and started a new, cherished adventure in her life.
In 2013, Bev gladly welcomed the arrival of her second granddaughter, Kortnee.
Her two grandbabies truly were the loves of her life and her two best buddies. This trio enjoyed many special activities together and were often inseparable.
As her two girls began participating in sports, Bev was always there to cheer them on too. She loved it.
Beverlee also enjoyed various shows and plays, OU athletics and Thunder basketball games with her family and close friends.
To say that Bev will be missed is an incredible understatement.
Beverlee is survived by her son, Kennt, his wife Jennifer and their daughters Katie and Kortnee. She is also survived by her brother, Ed Turner and wife Jan; younger sister Sherri Shepherd and husband Dave; many close friends, cousins, nephews and nieces.
Bev was preceded in death by her son Kasey, her parents and by other relatives and friends.
