The Story


Ms. Beverly Anne Burley, age 49 years, one month and four days, passed away peacefully with family by her side in Houston, Texas on Saturday, January 10, 2015.

Born on December 6, 1965, in Houston, Texas, to John Donald and Delores Mae Glass Burley, Beverly lived most of her life in Houston and its surrounding areas. She graduated from Clear Lake High School and went on to acquire a teaching degree from Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos. She returned to the Houston area and taught elementary students for many years before leaving the teaching profession. Beverly's final employment was as an office manager for Carmen Kamas Dentistry where she worked for several years.

Beverly believed in living life to its fullest. She never met a stranger and had an uncanny ability to deeply impact those around her. Beverly loved music, animals and, of course, cheering on the Texans. Most of all, she cherished her time with friends and family. The goodness of Beverly’s life will live on in our hearts, and her bubbly spirit will be dearly missed by us all.

Beverly is preceded in death by her mother, Delores Glass Burley, her sister, LeeAnne Shearin and her nephew, Jason.
She is survived by her sister, Patricia Rhodes and husband Alan; her sister Jan Cowan and husband Rick; her sister Maureen Hicks and husband Donald; her sister Christine Fowler; her brother John Burley; her nieces, Mauriah, Sarah, Darcy, Kelsey, Charrise and Cassie; her nephews, Donald and Ryan; and many other relatives and numerous friends.
As family and friends, whose lives Beverly touched, we gather today and rely on God’s strength while we reminisce, grieve, support each other and celebrate Beverly’s life. Let us remember her with grace and love.

It's been over 10yrs since I saw you last, I wish I would have seen you one more time, you were always kind to me and truly loved me as a friend, I'm sorry we lost touch and I'm ashamed of myself for just finding out you passed! Life is not fair, we all have debts to pay for the privilege of living on this earth, you Beverly paid those debts, depts for others that did not deserve your kindness! I hope you are in a better place God bless you girl You will be missed, Love you Jody

I am in shock and carry deep regret for not having kept in touch with you, Beverly. We were friends for nearly 2 decades before we lost touch. RIP my dear old friend. Till we meet again. Love, Cass

I remember Beverly from my visits to Carmen's dentistry office where she worked. I am visually impaired and Beverly was always willing to help me with paper work and such. That may seem a small thing, but I have been to businesses before, that more or less, seem to put up with that as an inconvenience. Beverly approached it as helping a friend. Beverly always gave me a 'Hi Henry' when I came to the office. My guess is that she did that for everyone, but it made me feel special, anyway. I was telling someone the other day that when you left Carmen's office, you felt like you were really leaving a friends house. That is true of everyone that works there, and Beverly was a big part of that feeling. I will remember Beverly, from the last time I saw her with a smile on her face. She was always good to grin at my silly jokes. I can't think of a better last remembrance, than to remember someone with a helpful attitude and a smile on their face. Henry Ratliff

Beverly... I know I will see her in heaven one day, because she knew how to get things done. She will be there smiling. I always think of her when I see a "carnival" . One of my favorite memories with her.... we went after work (Children's Dentist in Baytown) & had dinner.... and then we went to the mall and rode all the crazy rides in the parking lot. ( Just me and her and we had a lot of fun) She loved life and she loved helping others "Love Life"!!!

I’m missing my good friend, friends for over 10 years. In those 10 years we lived, loved, laughed, cried, praised and worshiped together. The tears I now cry are not for Beverly for God has called her home and he is never wrong, but for myself not having her a phone call away or a few exits down. Beverly was good listener and always made things better. I will cherish our friendship for the rest of my days. Her beautiful spirit will Forever live within me. “I Love you my girl” Rest in Peace now. Felicia
