Beverly was united in marriage on August 31st, 1957, to Arnold J. Bitterman and they spent 55 happy years together before his passing on December 8th, 2012. Beverly had a wonderful sense of humor and a big heart. She loved listening to Elvis Presley and dancing with Arnie and her friends. She was sincere and kind, cared for her family deeply and served her community, along side Arnold and friends, with pride as an active member of the Ladies Auxiliary Legion Post 489 in Yorkville, IL and a devoted member of Cross Lutheran Church. She took great joy in supporting her family’s pursuits and was actively involved in celebrating the things they loved to do. She embraced challenges including starting and operating her own business, Bob’s Upholstery, for years, and took pleasure in her work. Fred Neiser is a special part of our family and her life. She also enjoyed spending time with her loyal companion, Pumpkin (her cat). She will be dearly missed by her family and anyone who experienced her generous and loving spirit.
