She is survived by her children and their spouses, Pam (Tony) Wuthrich, Scott (Claire), Dennis (Denise) and Jeffery (Rachel), her 23 grandchildren, 32 great-grandchildren and 3 great-great-grandchildren.
Beverly married James Vernon Glade Jr on July 8, 1942 in the Salt Lake Temple. Vernon soon left for service in WWII. Returning to his bride three years later, Beverly was holding their daughter Pam, anxious to meet her father.
She was a dedicated room mother for children's classes at Sherman Elementary and served as president of the PTA for several years during the fifties. She spent several delightful years as a docent at the Church Museum. She took care of newborns for Salt Lake County. She loved the Relief Society where she ran the gamut of assignments ranging from pianist to president. With her husband, she fulfilled a Service Mission to Welfare Square demonstrating the skills that had amassed over a lifetime of problem solving.
She was a great grandmother. She became the "Muzzer" to three generations of adoring children. She was a serious cook. Her chocolate cake with white fluffy frosting was legendary.
Having spent most of 93 years within a two mile radius of her East Millcreek home, she was at peace with herself and world. She rarely complained or found fault with others, opting instead to love her family, support her friends and preparing to "graduate" to the next phase of her existence.
