In her free time, Bev treasured long lunches with family and friends, playing card games, where she belonged to several card clubs, playing golf, going to concerts and traveling. Bev was an avid fan and supporter of the Cleveland Browns.    

She was such a sweet and caring person that supported many charities including the Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley, the  Animal Charity Humane Society and New Lease on Life animal shelters.
