Beverley M. Elsmore | Morris Nilsen Funeral Chapel

March 28, 1930 - July 11, 2020

Beverley May Elsmore, age 90, of New Hope, MN, passed away on July 11, 2020. Survived by: children, Michele (Tom Elliott), Mike Elsmore, Patrick Elsmore (Pamela), Terry Elsmore, Chris Elsmore (Cheryl); 16 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren, 1 great-great-grandchild, and many step-family members. Beverley was preceded in death by husband Arthur and 2 great-grandchildren.

She defied the odds (of which there were many) her whole life - her heart being the one that finally just got too weak and tired after 90 years of living. She loved her family more than anything else and said she was truly blessed by her time with them. Recently upon receiving the diagnosis that her days would be short, she accepted the news acknowledging that “she has lived a full life, feels very blessed by her family and is ready for heaven”. Her final days were spent surrounded by most of her kids in The Villages, FL where she had resided (and loved every minute she was there) since the spring of 2019.

As per her wishes, she was cremated and will be buried at Fort Snelling in Minnesota with our dad at a later date (TBD).

  3. Rick Bailey says:

    Reeny and I are very sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. She, and your Dad, were remarkable neighbors and friends.
    I remember her, and your Dad as very wonderful couple that put up with us neighborhood kids always being around your house on Pennsylvania. From tether ball in your back yard, having all the kids over for Monopoly in the basement, and just being Great neighbors. She was a wonderful model of a Mother and parent.
    I know that your Mom is looking down and is so thankful for the Wonderful family she raised.
    You are in our prayers
    Rick & Reeny Bailey
