Obituary

 

Beverly Joanne Denslow (nee Briggs), age 58, of Willowick, passed peacefully in her sleep on January 21, 2022 in Willowick, OH. Born on September 24, 1963 in Euclid, OH to Arlene Balash and Jack Richard Briggs.

Born and raised in Mentor, OH, Beverly spent a short time of her childhood in Florida and graduated from Mentor High School in 1981. Most of her adulthood was enjoyed in sunny Southern California where she met her first husband Mark Rutherford with whom she shared the love as parents of their one and only beautiful daughter, Danielle. She also obtained an Accounting Degree from San Jancito, spending her entire Career as Professional Accountant. Eventually, she returned to her home state where she spent many days reunited with her twin sister and mother, and her surviving spouse Jim Denslow of Willowick.

Remained an active member of her chamber of commerce and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church where she enjoyed volunteering. A lover of all animals, particularly farm animals, Beverly held a special place in her heart for her horses whom she dedicated many years of her life caring for. Beverly was an avid “closet” Republican as she often feared disappointing her Democratic Grandfather whom she adored dearly.

She is survived by her husband, Jim Denslow; her mother, Arlene and father, Jack; twin sister Barbara Briggs, younger brother Jack Briggs and older sister Kathleen Briggs; beloved daughter, Danielle Ruiz; son-in-law, Diego Ruiz; grandchildren, Jessica, Juliet and Diego and many other loving aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews as well as many life-long friends near and far.

Beverly was preceded in death by wonderful grandparents, Ed and Irene Balash who passed in 2009 and 2020; her dearest niece, Brittany Ann Malia Ruiz who passed in 2012; and her uncle Will who also passed in 2020.

The family will receive friends at The Orlando-Donsante-Previte Funeral Home 29550 Euclid Ave., Wickliffe, on Thursday, January 27th from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. with a funeral service to follow at 4:00 p.m.

“You don’t get a gold star for just doing what you’re supposed to!” Beverly will always be remembered for the fun-loving, quick witted, and admirable woman she was.
