Beverly Ransom Winger, our loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother returned to her Heavenly Father on July 19, 2018. She was born May 25, 1936 in Preston, Idaho to Heber James and Velma Prescott Ransom. Her parents didn’t think they were able to have anymore children so they were thrilled when they found out she was coming, and they were delighted to get their 1st and only daughter. Her parents doted on her and her brothers; Max, Jay, and Ted spoiled her.
Beverly spent most of her life in Idaho except for a few short years she lived in Utah. She enjoyed traveling whenever she could. She especially enjoyed spending time in the mountains. She married Joseph Larry Winger May 4, 1955. They were blessed with five children: Robyn (Reed) Blau, Richmond, UT; Todd (Georgia) Winger, Clifton, ID; Melanie (Deceased), Laurie Jo (Michael) Earley, Hyde Park, UT; and Shawn Winger, Salt Lake City, UT.
Beverly worked many years serving the community as a nurse. She worked for 9 yrs. for Dr. Hale and 20 years in the Franklin County Nursing Home. She and Larry were also EMTs for Franklin County for a short time. Beverly was an avid reader which kept her busy when she had rheumatic fever as a child, and later was a source of comfort in the years she spent alone. She was an excellent seamstress, sewing a lot of her children’s clothing when the were young. She also enjoyed doing crossword puzzles and scrapbooking. Beverly loved spending time with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Family was very important to her. Beverly was active the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She enjoyed serving in all auxiliaries. She had a strong testimony of Jesus Christ and the plan of salvation, which was a great source of strength to her family. We know we will all be with her again.
Beverly lost her beloved husband, Joseph Larry, in 2008. She missed him dearly. Beverly was also preceded in death by her parents Heber and Velma; brothers: Max, Jay, Claude, and Ted; daughter Melanie; granddaughters: Jennifer, Heather and Holly Jo Hollingsworth; Great grandchildren: Larry Joseph Blau, LaCayden Jo and Preslee Cayde Rodriguez.
