She was born on April 23, 1929 to George and Vera Moldenhauer joining an older sister, Shirley. Beverly grew up in Downers Grove, IL and attended nursing school at Chicago Wesley Memorial Hospital School of Nursing in Chicago, IL. It was during college that she met her future husband Philip T.

Bev returned to her career in nursing when she joined the Walworth County Visiting Nurse Service, where she worked for over 30 years until her retirement in 1995.

Music was very important to Bev throughout her life and she sang in community and church choirs as well as performed as a soloist for many weddings and special events. She cherished her role as a grandmother and great-grandmother spending as much time as possible with her family. She and her husband both loved to travel and took their children camping across North America each summer as they were growing up.
