Beverly Joyce Jones (“Bev”) of Huntersville passed away Thursday, April 26, 2012. She was 57. Born on Feb. 24, 1955, she was a lawyer and risk management executive.
One of Bev’s proudest business accomplishments was earning the honor to practice at the bar as a Solicitor in Wales. Beverly graduated from Memphis State Law School, then went in to private practice in Memphis. She eventually moved into insurance law, and made her home on the shores of Lake Norman.
Beverly enjoyed life to the fullest, and will be remembered as a devoted partner, loving sister and doting Aunt, as well as a sincere neighbor and friend.
Bev’s love of beaches, sun and water was legendary. She enjoyed golfing, traveling, fishing, and supporting her favorite sports teams with attendance and celebratory parties at her lakeside home. She had an amazing zest for life-she really did accomplish everything she set out to do.
Beverly is survived by her partner of 19 years, Barbara; her brother Jimmy, her sister-in-law Michelle, her nephews Matthew, Tyler and Brian, and her niece Kylie, as well as her extended family members: Kevin, Kelly, Andrew and Patrick.
Collectively this entire group referred to themselves as the “Griswalds,” a nickname they claimed on one of their many adventures.
Services and a gathering to celebrate her life will be held at James Funeral Home, 10520 Arahova Drive, Huntersville, N.C. 28078 on Sunday April 29, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. with Deacon Louis Pais officiating.
