Beverly Joyce Davis (nee Broadwell), age 85, went home to be with her
Savior on September 2, 2021. Born in Heidelberg, Pennsylvania, Beverly
attended Eastern Pilgrim College where she met her beloved husband of 65
years, James Davis. After faithfully serving alongside her husband during his
pastorate, they settled in Glassboro, New Jersey in 1972, where she lived
out the rest of her years. She earned a Master's Degree in Education and
Certification in Administration from Glassboro State College and finished out
an accomplished career at Gloucester County Institute of Technology. She
was also an active member of the Richwood United Methodist Church where
she enjoyed singing in the choir.
Beverly had many titles throughout her life, but her favorite was "Nana." She
loved nothing more than spending time with her grandchildren and her great
grandchildren, her "greats," as she affectionately called them. She always
made sure that they were the best dressed kids at school. As she often said,
her family was her treasure.
She is survived by her husband, James H. Davis, daughters; Kathy (Joseph)
Drissel, Susan (Scott) Donaldson, and Amy Davis, brother; David (Brenda)
Broadwell, grandchildren; Ryan (Marcela) Drissel, Samuel Drissel, James
(Stephanie) Donaldson, Emily (Jeff) Smith, Joshua McCraw, Abel McCraw,
and great grandchildren: Alec, Derek, Dominic, Gabriela, Isabela, Avery,
Wyatt, and Jamie.

Richwood United Methodist Church, 104 Richwood Rd, Richwood, NJ
08074. Funeral service will be held at 11am. In lieu of flowers, donations
