Beverly Radford passed away peacefully on Friday, October 18, 2019 at 2:29 PM. She was with her oldest son Joel, his wife Laurie of Caldwell Idaho and her sister Arlene Bruns of Lakewood Colorado.
Beverly was born in Chappell Nebraska on May 26, 1938 to Violet and Russell Younglund. She grew up on the family farm near Oshkosh, Nebraska where she attended school in a one room school house. She and her family were active in the Foursquare Church in Chappell. She graduated from Chappell High School in 1956 where she met her future husband Ronnie (Roland) Radford. She attended L.I.F.E. Bible College until she and Ronnie married on September 12, 1958 at the Foursquare Church in Chappell, Nebraska.
They started their family of four boys in Southern California and in 1967 moved to Northern California eventually settling in the San Francisco Bay Area. After her boys were all in high school she went to work for Macy’s in San Jose. It was a job she enjoyed and stayed with for twenty years. Somehow after retiring they wound up in Emmett Idaho (she was not amused!).
Beverly was a devoted wife and loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother who started every day with a personal bible study and devotional. She loved the Lord and her family. She loved to laugh and have fun. She was loved by all who met her. She will be remembered by her faith in Jesus, her gentle spirit and loving kindness.
Beverly is preceded in death by her husband Ronnie (Roland) her parents Russell and Violet Younglund and her brother Gary and his wife Ladena Younglund. She is survived by her sister Arlene Bruns (Irven), sons Joel (Laurie), Rodney, Bobby, Micheal (Cindy), eleven grandchildren and four great grandchildren, with one on the way.
