Bev's family has been greatly blessed by her life and the loving example that she set for others.
Bev was also cherished by her wide circle of friends, and she was very active in the communities in which she lived. Born in Brooklyn, NY to parents Dolores and Walter Olsen, she later moved to her childhood home on the Pompton river in Wayne, NJ, and was a graduate of Wayne Valley High School. She raised her family in Totowa, NJ and later lived in Lincoln Park, NJ. Continuing her life-long appreciation of nature, and especially the water, she retired with her husband Joe to her beloved Jersey shore and south Florida.

Bev was also known for her positive outlook, energy, and resilient spirit. She served as an inspiration to many, especially as she faced chronic pain and restricted mobility over the past several years.
Throughout her life, Bev was passionate about community involvement and service, most recently with community arts organizations, coastal wildlife preservation groups, and with her church.
