Bev was born on October 31, 1934 in Flint, Michigan. She was the eldest of a large family and after graduating high school, she headed to California where she raised her two daughters. Once in retirement, she settled in Montana to be near her grandchildren. Bev loved her family and friends, playing card games, and arts and crafts. Never one to shy away, she reveled in healthy disagreements and enjoyed a good progressive conversation.
Bev is survived by her two children, Gloria Ann Pierson and Cynthia Rae Tudball as well as her six grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brothers, Butch Abernathy and Russell Weller.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Hubert and Olive (Pebworth) Abernathy, husband Richard Tudball, brother Louis Ray Abernathy, and sister Juanita Lucas.
Her love, her wisdom and wit, and her great sense of humor will be missed.
Arrangements are under the care of Franzen-Davis Funeral Home and Crematory.
