Beverly Jean Kurek, 88, of Bristol, passed away in the early morning on Thursday, January 19, 2023 after a brief stay at Sturgill Hospice House in Brooksville, Florida.

Bev/Betty as her friends called her was born in Rutland Vermont on April 6, 1934. She was the daughter of James and Christine (Guyette) Decker. She grew up in Pittsford. She moved to Bristol with her husband Frank and her children in 1964. After living in town and then on Route 116 she then moved into the home they built on Carlstrom Road in 1968. There she raised her family. Bev loved to read, crochet and play bingo at St. Ambrose Church. You could always find her there on Tuesday nights there. Bev loved the warmth so in 2008 she moved to Florida to become a snowbird. She would spend her winters there and her summers in her camper in Vermont. She had several different jobs over the years but none more important than raising her 7 children. She will be deeply missed by all. In her final days she said she saw the Lord and now she is in his presence.

She leaves behind her children and their spouses, Donna Gagnon, Dolores Brown and her husband Allen, Darlene Booska and her husband Earl, Frank Kurek and his wife Michelle and Christie Grant and her husband Mark.
