Beverly Jean Rigsby

August 31, 1929 — January 14, 2024

Beverly Jean Rigsby passed away on January 14th, 2024, after a long struggle with illness.

Beverly was born on August 31, 1929, in South Gate, San Francisco.  She certainly went through countless historical times and events during her ninety-four years on this earth, and each filled her with knowledge and life experiences that attributed to her strength, and vast and interesting stories. From watching the ships leave the Bay Area of San Francisco at the begging of WWII, the Great Depression, survival of massive earthquakes, drought, tornados, and the recent pandemic, she lived a turbulent and tough life, but she always recalled the memories as stamina builders and looked upon each as a challenge they overcame.

She was preceded in death by her devoted husband of thirty-seven years, Willis Eugene (Gene) Rigsby in 1988. She missed and mourned for him daily. Her Mother and Pop Carrie and Sylvester Terry, Brothers Al, and J.D. (Katherine) Terry, Sisters Rosemary (John) and Olive June (Jack).

She is survived by two daughters, devoted son-in-law, two grandchildren and one great grandson. They include her daughter Karen Rigsby-Ferree, Daughter and Son-In-Law Pam and David McBroome, Granddaughter Brittany McBroome, Granddaughter and Husband Trista and Keith Taylor and her treasured Great Grandson Jett. She also leaves behind a multitude of nieces and nephews, who she loved dearly and were always there for her.

Beverly, most lovingly remembered as Mom, Grandma and Aunt to many, valued her family and friends. She lived and loved her time with family and extended family more than life itself. Nothing made her happier than time spent with everyone loudly circled around, playing cards, eating delicious food, and tons of laughter. You were never safe from her cunning and talented card playing ways.

It did not matter if she had ever personally met you, if you were a friend of the family, you became her friend and family member. She genuinely loved each of those in her life. She also had a huge passion for Nascar racing and during the season you would often hear her yelling at the television and clapping her hands if her favorite driver had taken the lead or booing if they had issues. She was strong willed and stubborn at times, but she had an enormous hart and wonderful sense of humor that will be dearly missed.

Celebration of Life services will be held on January 22nd at 2:00 pm at Lockstone Funeral Home in Thomas Oklahoma, with visitation beginning one hour prior at 1:00 pm.
