Graveside services for Marion Lee Beverly of Delta, Alabama will be held on Sunday, January 28, 2024 at 2:00 P.M at Lineville City Cemetery. There will be no public visitation prior to graveside services.

Marion passed away at UAB Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama on January 25, 2024. She was preceded in death by her mother, Mavis Johnson of Coldwater, Alabama and her brother, Wayne Vardaman of Toledo, Ohio. Marion was also preceded in death by her infant son, Joshua Lee Beverly in 1988.

Born in Mobile, Alabama, Marion is survived by her husband, Fred Beverly of Delta, her daughters, Rachel Beverly of Coldwater and Katherine Beverly of Eastaboga, and a brother, “Butch” Vardamen of Mobile, Alabama.

Marion was an educator, beginning her teaching career in Lincoln, AL. for a year and then teaching at Millerville Elementary and finally Lineville Middle School until her retirement in 2010. She loved teaching while touching the lives of several thousand children during her 30 year career.

Marion and her daughters were world travelers, first visiting all fifty states, including Alaska and Hawaii, and then over the years visiting countries in six of the seven continents. Some of the places visited by both sea and air including China, Croatia, Egypt, England, Finland, France, Estonia, Italy, Russia, Scotland, and the Holy Land. Their last big trip in 2023 was a cruise to Antarctica by way of South America. Their plan was to visit Australia, their only unvisited continent, when poor health intervened and the trip could not be made.

Marion was the best mother, wife, teacher, and friend. She was brave, kind, funny, smart, and loved by everyone. Words cannot describe how badly she will be missed. We pray that when “the roll is called up yonder” we will all be together again.
