Dec. 28, 1955 – July 23, 2018
We introduced Beverly Brewer McCombs to Extol readers in October 2017 when she was one of several breast cancer survivors we featured in the issue. Vivacious and funny, Beverly lit up the room during her photo shoot and caused some of us to wipe away tears when she shared her story – but not out of sadness. Beverly’s positivity, love for God and her family and desire to uplift others was powerful and palpable.
Beverly passed away on July 23, which prompted us to take a look back at the words she once shared on these pages, a single sentence standing out among the rest: “Cry and grieve when you need to, but don’t stay there.”
