The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted.

Beverly Ann “Bev” Shaver, 86, entered in to Heaven October 21, 2015 in Sweet Home Oregon after a courageous battle with cancer.
She was born August 1, 1929 in Madison Wisconsin to John and Lorraine Heffron and was the eldest of two children. The family moved to California in 1943 and settled in the Los Angeles area. Beverly graduated from Saint Monica’s High School 1948 and during her junior and senior years was the esteemed captain of the girls’ basketball team. She was also honored with the title of best all-around player.
In 1954 she married Robert G. Shaver (“Bob”) and they made their home in Capistrano Beach where they raised their 5 children. Retiring in Sweet Home Oregon in 1983, Bev spent her time fishing with Bob and enjoying her grandchildren. She is remembered for her feisty, competitive nature on her bowling league and playing spirited card games with her family.
Bev is survived by her sons, John, David and Robert Shaver; daughters Tracy Lapham and Mary Cope; and sister Rosemary Dorazio. She has 13 grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband Bob in 2007.
Services were held at St. Helen’s Catholic Church in Sweet Home, October 27.
