Beverley Jean Garber of Grace Village Retirement Community of Winona Lake, Indiana went to be with her Lord on Wednesday, July 15, 2020 at Grace Village Health Care in Winona Lake, Indiana at the age of 94.
She was born on January 22, 1926 in Modesto, California to Bertha and John Wooley. On October 18, 1946 she was married to Reverend Martin Murray Garber. They shared 71 years of marriage together before he passed away on August 1, 2018.
Beverley had been a resident of Kosciusko County, Indiana for the past 30 years, moving to Winona Lake, Indiana in the early 90’s to retire. She and her husband, Reverend Martin, spent their lives serving the Lord as Missionaries in the Central African Republic for 40 years where she taught the native women and children. She was a past member of Winona Lake Grace Brethren Church and New Horizon Community Church in Winona Lake, and she had attended Oak Grove Community Church in Warsaw. Beverley was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and a friend to many. She would most want to be remembered for her steadfast faith in her Savior Jesus Christ.
She will be lovingly remembered by her son: John (Kelly) Garber (Warsaw, Indiana); two daughters: Joyce Garber (Pasadena, California); Lynda Garber (Winona Lake, Indiana); seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband.
