Beverly Jean Yaple, born Jan. 29, 1945, in Bend, Ore. left us on Sept. 15, 2017.

Beverly is preceded in death by her fathers, Carl Swanson and Aloysious Vizenor, her mother, Grace Swanson, grandmother Daisy Chamberlin, brothers Dale Vizenor, Charlie Swanson, Lynn Swanson and her dog Sarah Lee.

She is survived by her loving husband of 52 years, Weldon Yaple, daughter Carla (Jeff) Santsche, son Dewane Yaple, grandchildren Cameron (Ciera) Yaple, Curtis (Lindsay) Santsche, Lauryn Yaple, Aryn (Clyde) Dalton, Cassidy (Skylar) Sutsch and four great-grandchildren, several nieces and nephews, brother and sister-in-laws and many cousins.

Beverly grew up mostly in Eureka after moving here from Oregon. She was one of the Humboldt Hill gang and always had a special place in her heart for them. She enjoyed many years of bowling and being in the dance club with her husband, as well as the 4x4 club. Later on in life she loved playing pool with the girls — Linda, Darci, Barb, Karla, Debbie and Muffie. She also loved her trips to the casino with family and friends. Everyone who met her loved her for her infectious laugh and spontaneous humor. We will all miss this tremendously.

We would like to Dr. Matthews, Dr. Palmer, Dr. Michel and all the staff at Fresenius Dialysis.

A celebration of life will be held on Oct. 14, 2 p.m.- 6 p.m., at E&O Bowl in Glendale (Blue Lake).
