She married Ross Thompson and had three children: Brad, Melanie, and Lorelei. Later divorced, she married Robert Benjamin Mudd and had two more girls: Roberta and Alison.

Beverly moved to SLC and put herself through nursing school while raising her children as a single mother. Beverly was always very self-sufficient as a single mother and worked as a nurse for over 50 years. She lived in the avenues with her three children and walked to Holy Cross Hospital where she worked. She then worked at Cottonwood Hospital and continued to raise five children. Beverly had an amazing listening ear that drew people to her. She loved the gospel and served valiantly in her church callings throughout the years. She enjoyed quilting, canning, genealogy, and being with family. She loved playing SORRY and was ALWAYS Yellow! She had the most beautiful head of white hair, like an angel and stunning baby blue eyes.

Beverly is survived by her son Brad (Wendy) Thompson, daughters Melanie (David) Hedgpeth, Lorelei (Paul) Adamson, Roberta (John) Catmull, Alison (Tom) Knapp, 8 grandchildren, 15 great grandchildren, and numerous extended family. She is loved by many and will be missed by all.

The family would like to extend a special thanks to the many hands that helped take care of Beverly, Elevation Home Health and Hospice, Golden Living Center, and Welcome Home Assisted Living.

We use to live in Taylorsville and Bev was one of my favorite people. She was so kind and loving to all of us. I haven’t seen Bev in years and what a beautiful woman she was inside and out. Thinking of you.

Growing up in Taylorsville was great. I was blessed to have good friends in Sister Mudd's son Brad & Tim Boss. Although I didn't spend a lot of time in her home (us kids hung around outside), when I was there she emanated a peace & love I have always remembered.

My condolences to you Brad, little bug & you other girls. I'm sure you will miss your mom.

Lots of great memories from the neighborhood, girls camp and the activities our girls were involved in. We loved her! LARRY will never forget the fast trip the two of them had going down the canyon on their way to the hospital to get burn care for the Ashby girl.
