Obituary for Beverly Gentry

Beverly Gentry
Beverly Joy Peters Gentry
July 23. 1933-- July 7, 2018

Please join with friends and family as they celebrate Beverly’s life well-lived. Known for her warm, welcoming heart, she was deeply loved and enjoyed by all who knew her.

Raised in Sedalia, Missouri, she fell in love with God and His ways as a child, and while in high school, she met the other love of her life, Jack. They married on June 6, 1951, and moved to Rolla, Missouri (1952), where they raised their 4 children and lived for 34 years.

Beverly was a homemaker extraordinaire—lovingly creating a warm homey atmosphere, cooking, canning, baking, and sewing clothes for herself and her girls. She loved hearing the slam of the screen door announcing the arrival of a neighbor or friend.

Always the server, she served not only her family, but her church and community. Vacation Bible School. Clean-up after potluck dinners. Volunteering at a school for special needs children. She started a preschool and taught little ones. She served as a church secretary and an administrative assistant for a college ministry. Bev consistently made a place in her heart and in her home for new friends, son-in-laws, a daughter-in-law, college students, and her PEO sisters (a PEO member for over 50 years).

After Jack’s retirement, they moved to Northwest Arkansas to serve at the Mt. Sequoyah Methodist retreat center. For over 25 years, together they encouraged families in crisis at the Samaritan Community Center in Rogers. Her greatest joy in her senior years included her morning hours of study in the Bible, her times with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, fellowship within many community groups at Fellowship Bible Church-NWA, and sitting on her porch-swing enjoying Jack’s flower beds.

Words that best describe her include: devoted, unassuming, sensitive, and always seeing the best in everyone.

Her gracious companionship will be sorely missed by Jack, her husband of 67 years, her children—Cam & Laura Gentry (Rogers), Rebecca & Michael Mulvaney (Rogers), Karen and Robert Ward (Ada, OH), and Lisa and Willie Chavez (El Paso, TX), along with her 10 grandchildren, and her 21 great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, her family requests donations be made to Samaritan Community Center (www.samcc.org).
