Beverly Ann “Bev” Shaver, 86, of Sweet Home, Oregon entered into Heaven after a courageous battle with cancer.

She was born in Madison, Wisconsin to John and Lorraine (Lickel) Heffron and was the eldest of two children. The family moved to California in 1943 and settled in the Los Angeles area. Beverly graduated from Saint Monica’s High School 1948 and, during her junior and senior years, was the esteemed captain of the girls’ basketball team. She was also honored with the title of best all-around player.

In 1954 she married Robert G. Shaver (“Bob”), and they made their home in Capistrano Beach where they raised their five children.

Retiring in Sweet Home in 1983, Beverly spent her time fishing with Bob, enjoying her grandchildren, cooking, bird watching, and making crafts. She is also remembered for her feisty, competitive nature on her bowling league and playing spirited card games with her family.

Bev is survived by: her sons, John, David, and Robert Shaver; daughters, Tracy Lapham and Mary Cope; and sister, Rosemary Dorazio. She has 13 grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Bob, in 2007.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be respectfully made to Willamette Valley Cancer Institute (WVCI).
