Beverly Anne Bosley, our beloved mother, sister, aunt and grandmother, died at home on Thursday, April 19, 2018 surrounded by her loving family. Born on February 11, 1949 in Sharon, CT, she was the daughter of the late Harold and Blanche (Dwy) Way. She attended Dover schools and was an accomplished student for attendance and citizenship, a four-year captain of the Cheer Squad and a superior athlete who represented the school at state-wide competitions. She was voted Most Athletic of her graduating class of 1967 and was also a former Miss Dover.
After attending Albany Business School, she worked for the State of New York for 37 years in the Personnel and Business Office administration. When the Harlem Valley Psychiatric Center closed in 1994, she worked at Hudson River Psychiatric Center in Poughkeepsie and at the NYS Division for Youth in Wingdale, NY until she retired in 2004.
An avid golfer, Bev was the secretary and treasurer of the Harlem Valley Golf Club in Wingdale for several years. She also enjoyed bowling and most recently was a member of “Annie’s Gang” at Lore’s Lanes in New Milford, CT and “The Good Old Timers” league in Fishkill. Bev loved to play bingo and board games and hosting Wednesday night poker with her friends.
Her family and friends treasured her fun and loving spirit and her particular fondness and special way with children. On Christmas and Thanksgiving, she hosted family who delighted in her delicious macaroni and cheese. Bev loved to travel with her sister twice a year to Texas to visit her family.
