Beverly Vera Travis (Buelow)
Beverly Travis (Buelow) was born November 30, 1932 in Duluth Minnesota to Helen and William Buelow. She adored being the older sister to William (Bill), Mary and Neil. She married Dale Travis after high school and they had three beautiful daughters - Victoria, Cynthia and Patricia. As Beverly's family multiplied, so did her love that spread to include her five grandkids - Natalie, Stephanie, Alison, Matthew and Candace and eventually six great grandkids. She peacefully transitioned to reunite with loved ones who preceded her in death on June 2, 2019. She will perform her new angel duties from above alongside her parents, husband, brother Bill and daughter Patricia.
Beverly was known for her quick laugh, sweet disposition, lessons in grace and the best smile around. She gave back to her community in many ways from knitting baby blankets to be given to newborns, assisting Habit for Humanity and working with other community organizations to help those in need. She was an avid learner and could never turn away a book. She took senior college at Alexandria Technical & Community College into her 70's. This knowledge led her to win so many contests on the local radio station that she was asked to give others a chance to win. Her unique voice and fun banter with her cousin Romaine was featured on a local commercial for all to enjoy. She was also known to have an eye for a bargain, regularly looked for good stuff and then would go back on Senior Day to buy the item(s).
Beverly and her dog, Maya, were blessed by Craig Mische who became Maya's caretaker, walker and personal trainer, after Patty's death. Beverly was blessed with two wonderful son-in-laws, Danny and Pat. Pat spent a full week taking care of her home and dog while Bev was hospitalized this winter.
Her family is grateful to Kendra, her nurse from Knute Nelson, and all of the Alomere ICU staff who were beyond kind, attentive, professional and loving to Beverly who assisted her in leaving this world to join her Heavenly Father.
Her death leaves a hole in our heart just as her life had filled it up. We mourn and we rejoice and give thanks.
A memorial service will be held on Friday, June 14, 2019 at 1 PM at the Anderson Funeral Home in Alexandria with a visitation for one hour prior to the service.
