Beverly Kingston Garrett, age 62, formerly of Cleburne, passed away Friday, March 31, 2022. She attended Stephen F. Austin University as well as Tarleton State University earning her degree in Elementary Education. She was passionate about children and helping others in need, which were evident in every aspect of her life, including her career choices. She started her career as a teacher, before entering into the medical field, where she worked for most of her life. She was a pharmacy tech at Methodist Medical Center in Dallas for 18 years as a hardworking, dedicated employee, and a friend to anyone lucky enough to meet her. Additionally, she also worked as a phlebotomist at Methodist in the early 1980’s.
Beverly was exceptionally smart, those who knew her would say she was a walking encyclopedia. When you need an answer to a difficult question, “ask Beverly was always the answer” since she was right 90% of the time. Beverly was also a child magnet, if children were around, they flocked to her. Must have been the beautiful aura that surrounded her. Beverly was a beloved wife, mother, and grandmother (Maw Maw) as well as a mother to many other children that crossed her path in distress. She was also a friend to everyone and loved to entertain. She loved to watch the Dallas Cowboys and was a diehard fan and could talk football like the best of men. One of her passions was cooking, and what an awesome cook she was. Beverly adored her grand babies most of all.
Beverly was proceeded in death by her parents, Wayne and Helen Kingston. She is survived by her husband of 35 years, Lance Garrett; her sons, Kingston Garrett and his wife, Kristen and their two children, James and Chance, Michael Basham and his wife, Kaddie and their three children, Sadi (Bug), Bonnie Blue and Danni Basham; sisters, Allonna Norberg, Cheryl Nichols and Karen Tedder; and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
The family would like to express their thanks for all of the prayers and support that friends and family have given in this difficult time. If desired friends can make a memorial contribution to ASPCA or American Heart Association in Beverly’s name.
From Lance: “Thanks for being Beverly’s friend. She was my best friend and soulmate and I simply adored her. I will miss you baby, until we will meet again. I Love You.”
