Beverly always enjoyed riding motorcycles with Buddy, they were members of the Christian Motorcycle Association and Retreads. One of her favorite rallies was the “Changing of the Colors Rally” in Mena, AR. After Buddy’s passing she learned to drive the motorhome on her own and she would venture off to Mt. Rushmore where she would work the tourist season and then head the motorhome south to Yuma Arizona where she wintered. She also enjoyed reading and rarely missed her daily Bible reading. She loved spending time and keeping up with her grandchildren and great-grands.

Well, old friend, it was fun with 3 of us standing up at Roosevelt when the teacher called "Beverly" wasn't it? I had been searching for you and Dana online but couldn't find any addresses but when my daughter searched today, we found you. That must have been why you have been on my mind so much lately. Rest in peace old friend. My blessings are with your family.

It was an awesome privilege to work for Mrs. Blagg at the First National Bank of Coffeyville. Her professionalism was equaled only by her tremendous kindness to all of her employees. She is a great lady and our prayers are with you at this time of loss.

Beverly was a wonderful person & a big influence while I was growing up in KC. The Blaggs were our neighbors & our best friends. I’m sure our parents are delighted to be together with Buddy & Beverly. I hope card games are allowed in heaven. Blessings to you all.

I remember Bev's determination to be independent. When I tried to help her by moving a chair closer to her, she almost fought with me LOL because she wanted to do it for herself. As I get older now, I can appreciate her determination and tenacity to always do for herself. That is something to be admired. We all miss you Bev.

Our family will always have fond memories of Beverly and Buddy through their many works in the Central Baptist Church in Indian Village, Coffeyville and remembering them smiling as they'd be on another trip with their motor cycle group. The blessings they brought to others are many and Beverly and Buddy will be missed.
