She is survived by her husband, Gordon; children, David (Carmie) Behrens, and Marcie (Ed) Fiala; and grandchildren, Alex and Holli Fiala.

Beverly Jean was born March 7, 1931 in Tama County to Ernie and Vernice (Bredfeldt) Nation. The family moved to Mount Vernon in August, 1936. On August 16, 1952, she married Gordon Behrens at The First Lutheran Church in Cedar Rapids; they celebrated 66 years. When Gordon was in the Army stationed at Fort Devins, Massachusetts, Bev joined him there.

She started to work at Hugh and Iva’s Photo Shop as a young woman before finding her work home at Mount Vernon Bank and Trust beginning in 1958. When she retired in 1994, she was the Senior Trust Officer.

A diehard Cubs fan, Bev loved all God’s creatures, including her family and her pets. She was a long term member of First Methodist Church of Mount Vernon.
