Beverly Fuqua

Beverly Lue Flock Fuqua daughter of the late John Forrest Flock and Lulavon Belle Speer was born August 24, 1931 at their home on Indian Creek near Fiat, Kansas with Pappy John delivering her. She entered into eternal rest on November 13, 2022 at the age of 91 years.

Beverly’s happiest memories were spent on Indian Creek with her sister Margie and Brothers, Ronald and Donald. She loved entertaining others with stories from that time which included pushing Don out the barn loft and Ronald hiding in the rafters in the outhouse at Union Valley School to frighten anyone who might come in.

In later years, when memory had left her, stories of Indian Creek and her sister Margie stayed with her the longest.

Beverly was blessed with five children; Cindy, Denny, Andy, Bev, and Liz.
Sixteen Grandchildren and numerous Great-Grandchildren and Great-Great Grandchildren.
She was a wonderful Mother and Grandmother and many memories were made making and pulling homemade taffy, taking walks together outside and singing church hymns. She also loved sharing stories and poems with her Grandkids. The weeping willow tree she had in her yard was a special place in the summertime to tell stories underneath. Halloween was a favorite holiday of hers and she would dress up and tell trick-or-treaters a scary story before they got their treat.

Beverly was a longstanding member of the Church of Christ. She loved God and was a beautiful example of a faithful Christian woman. She was fiercely intelligent and had a love for politics and current events. She never missed her opportunity to vote and loved her country. She often spoke of being a child and listening to the men in her family discuss happenings in the world and how fascinating she found that. She had a unique sense of humor and a wonderful and joyous laugh that will be missed.
She was always fascinated by nature and God’s creatures. She loved flowers and working out in her yard. Her house was filled with African violets just as it was in her mother’s home.

She is survived by her children; Cynthia Crane and husband, Causie; Andy Peterson and wife, Roxanne; Beverly Kimbrough and husband, Travis; Elizabeth Peterman and husband, Jim; one brother, Donald Flock and wife, Judy; Grandchildren; Shilo Crane and wife, Priscilla; Shelby Crane and wife, Sandy; Suzanne Scott and husband, Wayde; Barron Crane and wife, Madeleine; Stacey Peterson, Crystal Gail Peterson, and Lisa Marie Peterson; Andrea Peterson, Zonya Wilson and husband, Josh; Marsh Peterson and wife, Marissa; Marietta Caldwell and husband, Chris; Forrest Kimbrough and wife, Kristy; Kate Prewett and husband, Alex; Hannah Hampton and husband, Aaron; Rachel Ralston; Her special friend, Sharon who looked after her like she was her own.
