On Oct. 29, 1954, she married Robert Bryan Reeves Sr. In 1965, Bev fulfilled a dream when she graduated as a Licensed Practical Nurse from the Bellevue School of Nursing. She worked at the Issaquah Villa for 20 years.

Even after her retirement, she continued her legacy of being a kind, compassionate and caring soul through the actions she showed to her family, friends and neighbors. Beverly was an active member of the Issaquah Senior Center, and volunteered at the Hutchinson House. She enjoyed a long, amazing and beautiful life in the city of Issaquah.

She was preceded in death by her parents Ross and Siama Wright, her brother Bill Wright, her husband Robert Reeves, her son Randall Reeves and her sister Brenda Carlisle.

She is survived by her sister Bonnie Sharp, and her children Shelly and Steve Croney, Robert Bryan Reeves Jr. and Denise Reeves, and Roslyn Reeves.

She leaves behind many nieces, nephews and cherished friends.

May we all take peace in knowing that this loving mother, wife, grandmother and friend is watching over the people she loved so much. Beverly was surrounded with love as she took her final journey.
