Beverly Ann Bille was born February 9, 1939 to Stanley and Eva (Thompson) Crocker in Webster, South Dakota. The family soon moved to Big Stone, Minnesota, where Beverly spent much of her childhood. She acquired her GED in Big Stone and then moved to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where she met the love of her life Gordon Bille. On May 1, 1959 the couple were united in marriage. The newly married couple moved onto the Bille farmstead, where they remained for the next 45 years. They lived, worked, and raised four children on the farm, Beverly working hard as a loving mother and dependable farm wife. Beverly then moved to Danebod Village in Tyler, where she resided from the age of 65 to 80. She then moved to Avera Sunrise Manor in Tyler where, on November 2, 2022, surrounded by her loving family, she passed away at the age of 83 years, 8 months, and 23 days.
Beverly was always the life of the party. Whether dancing with Gordy, camping, playing cards, or working on puzzles, Beverly brought a love for life and for her friends and family that will be deeply missed. She enjoyed listening and dancing to country music, especially Alan Jackson and Meryl Haggard. Her favorite thing to do was spend time with her friends and family, whom she loved unconditionally. Beverly and her family will be forever grateful for the care, attention, and love she received from the doctors and staff at Sunrise Manor.
