Memorial for Fall City homemaker Beverly Sams, 81, is Saturday

A celebration of life for Beverly B. Sams of Fall City is 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22, at Raging River Community Church, 31104 S.E. 86th St., Preston.

Beverly, 81, died Monday, Feb. 10.

Born April 3, 1932, to Lydia and Chris Septin Walla Walla, Wash., Beverly was the oldest of three children.

Before her marriage to Ray Sams, she worked at the Walla Walla Cannery, a dime store, a dry cleaner, and at Whitman college, where she cleaned dorms.

She had always wanted to be an at-home mom, and enjoyed being at home with her family. She loved crafts and sewing, and did what she could to help people in need.

Beverly is survived by her husband, Raymond Sams of Fall City, son Ron Ward of Renton, sister June Regula of Stanwood, brother Bud Sept of Walla Walla, and numerous neices, nephews, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She is also survived by two cousins she was especially close to, Harvey Rink and his wife Sharon of Rathdrum, Idaho, and Loris Schmidt and his Marilyn of Richland, Wash.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may go to your favorite charity in Bev's name.
