Beverly Jean Alvarado passed away peacefully 8/20/12 after a brief battle with cancer. Born 7/30/35 in Council Bluffs, Iowa, she relocated to Southern California where she later retired after working 20 years for Robert Shaw. She was preceded in death by her husband John, her son Abel, and son in law Theron. She is survived by her faithful dog Champ; her children Mary (Joe), Sue (John), Rick (Jan), Sherry (Frank), Sandy (Bob), Betsy (Chicklets), Ted, Dorothy (Gene), Tim (Michelle); 35 grandchildren; and 52 great grandchildren. The family will always remember her smile, especially while playing the slots or after completing a puzzle. Most of all we will miss the annual Christmas Eve celebration at her home. The pain of our loss is softened by the knowledge that she has been reunited with her beloved husband.
A viewing is scheduled for Thursday 8/23/12 from 5-8pm and services will be held Friday 8/24/12 at 1:30pm. Both will be at Crestlawn Memorial, 11500 Arlington Ave, Riverside CA. (951) 689-1441.
