Obituary Please share a memory of Beverly to include in a keepsake book for family and friends. View Tribute Book LONG, Beverly Anne (Bev), a lifelong resident of Goochland, was born October 15, 1957, and left us last week 17 days after her 65th birthday. She graduated from the University of Richmond in 1980 and began working that fall with Goochland Social Services. She loved her job, the people she worked with, but most of all, she was motivated by the opportunity to share her passion for helping people. Throughout her school years, she played the flute, and has, since the early 1990s, performed with the Richmond Concert Band as a way to collaborate with dedicated individuals who share her excitement and commitment. Her parents, Tom and Helen; and sister, Dale Long Jackson preceded her in death. Bev shared the last 25 years of her life with Wesley Childress “Wes.” They genuinely loved each other, but the real magic was how they looked at each other…time and again as if it were the very first. Five years ago, a simple muscle ache led to the discovery of multiple myeloma. Her life now had the added regime of blood draws, infusions, chemo and radiation…but she never allowed myeloma to identify her. Bev had nothing but respect, admiration and faith in her team of oncology doctors at St. Mary’s and VCU Health. We all come into this world without prejudice. Overtime we learn jealously, greed, envy and the like. Bev never did. It is not what Bev said or did that we will always remember, but we’ll always remember about the way Bev made us feel. Thank you, Bev. I will always love you. And I can hear her reply…Promise? To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Beverly, please visit our floral store. Read more
