Beverly J. Edwards October 3, 1936 – June 3, 2013

Beverly J. Edwards was called home June 3, 2013. She was 76.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, June 11, at Callahan-Edfast in Grand Junction.

A graveside service will follow at 3:00 p.m. in Carbondale, CO, at Evergreen Cemetery. A celebration of life will be held following the burial at the American Legion Post #100 in Carbondale.

Bev was born in Aspen, CO, to Harry and Velma Phillips and spent her childhood there.

She met the love of her life, Jack L. Edwards, and they were married January 17, 1958, in Carbondale. They were blessed with three children. Bev is now reunited with her soulmate.

Bev touched many lives with her huge heart, so comforting and kind. Her laughter was contagious. Always amazingly thoughtful and loving. She will be missed by many and cherished forever.

The happiest times were spent with family; fishing, boating, hunting, camping and family vacations.

Bev is survived by a son, Dan (Bobbie) Edwards; daughters, Terri (Roy) Watkins and Patti (Alan) Martinez; grandchildren, Suzie (Scott), Misty (Paul), Jamie (Justin), Cody, Joshua, Matthew and Anthony; eight great-grandchildren; and a brother, Larry Phillips. She was preceded in death by her husband, father, mother, infant daughter and grandson.

You will forever be the sunshine that lives within each of us.

Giving us hope, faith, laughter and love!
