Our dear mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend, Beverley June Cavanaugh, passed away surrounded by family on Thursday, April 28, 2022, and returned home to her loving Heavenly Father and her husband’s open arms.

Beverley married the love of her life, Ray Cavanaugh, on September 10, 1964, in the Salt Lake City Temple. They were married for 57 wonderful years. He passed away last year on August 26, 2021.

Known as Momma C, Beverley was the business owner of Cavanaugh’s Casuals Inc. and a strong advocate of board sports. One of her favorite quotes was “If you’re unhappy with your lot in life, build a service station on it.”
