Beverly was born on December 6, 1964 to Linda Holen and Melvin Starr in Dickinson, ND. She graduated from Twin Buttes Elementary School and Halliday High School. Bev fell in love with Darcy Lone Bear in her teen years. They were together for 13 years before getting married. The couple spent 30 incredible years together before Darcy left this world in 2012. By her senior year in high school, the good Lord called home their first born son, Timothy. Bev went to FBCC for many years. Following FBCC, she started her career as a paraprofessional with Twin Buttes School until 2012. Bev and Darcy welcomed their miracle baby, Stacy Ann Louise on July 3, 1985. Stacy was the light of their life, until their grandbaby Kaydence Jazzlyn was born on November 17, 2005 along with Kyler and Keegan. Bev loved all of her grandbabies and stole them from their parents often.
Some of Bev’s enjoyments in life were playing softball (the best player around!). She loved being with Darcy at the lake to catch fish for a fish fry. She enjoyed playing basketball with her sister and traveling with the Hackers just for the fun of it. She also loved to play horseshoes with Darcy and the family, playing darts for the Red Horse Tavern (“Win or Lose, We Booze”) and hanging out with her sisters, brothers, nephews and friends. Hanging out with Bev was an event, there was always laughing and doing crazy stuff.
Bev loved everyone and made everyone around her feel special. Everybody was her favorite person. She was a second mom to Annie Cayla and James Beston along with many more. She often spoke of the good Lord, quoting Bible verses and telling people to pray and helping those who needed more understanding of the Bible. Bev was also known for giving her loved ones crazy nicknames, for example: Nemo, Spody Lynn, Heifer, J-Nug, B-Bug, Heavy D, Shay Shay, Kat-Rice, Maria Lavo, Twin, Black Betty, Dream Arrow, Lightning, Bri-Cherie, P-Ness and many, many more.
