She was educated at both Bath and Canton Schools, became a CNA after working at Forster’s Mfg. in Wilton for 15 years before retiring. Before that, she was a homemaker, which she thoroughly enjoyed. Being with her family and friends throughout the years was of the utmost importance to her. Her favorite thing was going on road trips, dancing and just being around those that she loved and cared about. Beverly was a very kind, strong caring woman whose door was always open to many at her residence in Canton which she made home for 33 years. Her open door continued at Whitney Brook for 13 years.

She is survived by her sons: Douglas Marsters and his wife Paula, Scott Marsters and his wife Denise of Canton. Kevin Marsters of Laurens, SC; daughters: Kelly Marsters, her partner Ernie, of Peru. Terry Marsters, Barbara Marsters of Dixfield. Her wonderful 18 grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren, and 1 great-great grandchild, many nieces and nephews and her best friend Annie Soda.
