Beverly Rosella Holmes Lemperle
"BEVERLY LEMPERLE...COME ON DOWN!" You're the next contestant on the Price is Right!" And boy did she ever manifest her luck by winning the double showcase showdown. She proudly drove the car she won complete with a personalized license plate "WINNER". A fitting word to represent our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend and her impact upon us.
Beverly passed away December 26, 2022, after complications from surgery joining her sweetheart, Alvin, and daughter, Suzanne.
Born on July 11, 1935, to William LeRoy Holmes and Pearl Rosella Andersen. She was raised in Salt Lake City attending Jordan Junior High and graduating from West High School. Go Panthers!
As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she served as Relief Society President, Young Women's President, Primary President, and various other callings including ordinance worker in the Salt Lake Temple.
Beverly met Alvin in high school. They attended a dance with different people and left with each other. That was the beginning of their courtship. Beverly and Alvin later worked at the Arcade theater, their romance did not begin on the silver screen, however, Mom and Dad kissed the first time in the projection booth- so it was a cinematic event. They were married and sealed shortly after his mission in the Salt Lake Temple on January 10, 1958
Her natural leadership style, positive attitude and hard work marked her 36-year career with Intermountain Healthcare where she worked as Director of Communications. She originated the physician answering service and paging system. Her successes in communications grew out of her early beginnings working at Mountain Bell and Holy Cross Hospital as a telephone operator.
Mom loved to travel and see the world from Europe to New York to Hawaii, but her favorite place was with her family. She made all of us feel special, loved, and supported.
She would remember the names of each person she met and would know something of their life. How better could you make someone feel loved? With her trademark smile and twinkle in her eye; She loved and influenced many people and will be missed by all of us.
All in all, Beverly's life was a great big win.... she shot the moon!
