Bev was a very sweat lady. I will always remember that she help me get my first car loan when she co-signed a loan for me so I could build up my credit. I will also remember that she made the best chicken pie I ever ate. I used to love when she made that and invited me over for dinner My condolences To Sue, Dale, and Jim and the rest of her family. Also to my daughter Kayla. Love you so much. Thoughts and prayers to all and god bless. Marc and Dianna Perras.

Visiting our dearest family friends each summer for the July 4th week was and still is my fondest memories. Camping at the Historic Valley Campground since it opened with the entire Brown family coming each day to visit making many wonderful memories that have lasted through the years. Sue, Bev, Harry, Cindy, Jim and Dale we have always considered our family. Generations have grown up together due to the deep friendship of Bev and Harry with my parents Shirley and Maurice MacDow. It didnt matter how many miles there were between them, the friendship remains strong to this day. Bev will be missed deeply, however the sorrow is overshadowed by all the wonderfully happy times that were spent with her and family. Love to you all in your time of grief. Love Lisa, Patrick, Shirley, Maurice, Megan, Kaitlyn and Gabrielle
