Born in Cameron, Texas, Beryl lived in many Texas cities including Galveston, Palestine, and Houston.  In 1984 she moved from Houston to Omaha to be closer to her daughter Linda and family.  She had a successful real estate career well into her sixties, then worked another ten years in retail.  When Beryl was young, she loved to travel, fish, and hunt.  She loved to play cards and games of all kinds where, of course, she always had to win!  She also loved small dogs she could carry around and have sit in her lap.  Beryl lived a very long, full and, for the most part, happy life.  She will be very missed and remembered always for her very sassy yet loving spirit.
