Beverly J. “Mamaw” Lagore, age 77 yrs, of Whitehall, passed away peacefully with her family at her home on Monday, February 10, 2020.
Born January 17, 1943, in Bedford, Indiana to the late Glendora Kinser. Beverly was a dedicated and hardworking COTA bus driver for the city of Columbus for over 20 years. Beverly loved her time working for COTA, and spending time with her family. She loved shopping on QVC and Jewelry TV and snuggling with her pets. Tragically, Beverly lost her mother at a young age and was lovingly raised by her Aunt Wanda and Uncle Carl, and came to refer to them as “Mom” and “Dad”.
Beverly is preceded in death by her adoring husband, William Lagore, of 12 years until his passing, beloved Aunt Wanda and Uncle Carl, best friend; Sylvia Cornelius and treasured fur babies; Charlie, Buddy, BJ, and Fender.
She is survived by her two daughters; Lori (Jorge) Hernandez and Tammy (Stacey) Arnold-Gressett. She is also survived by her fur babies; Snoopy, Daisy, and Whiskas. Whom she cherished greatly. She was a loving grandmother to five grandchildren: Julianne (Edgar Uc) Dishongh, Jeff (Heather) Bender, Jesse (Jennifer Burns) Martinez, Angel Gonzalez, and Samantha (Zackery Billings) Hernandez. And many great-grandchildren; Erya Uc, Ryean Uc, Jeff Jr. Bender, Wyatt Gonzalez, and Meilani Gonzalez. Beverly is also survived by her Aunt Norma and cousin; Julia and mother to her great-grandchildren, Sydnie Geelen.
She will be missed very much by her family and friends, to whom she would always say “I love you more”.
