Beverly A. Feehan ,66, of Johnstown, NY passed away Sunday evening August 22 from a sudden illness. With her fierce determination and sharp wit on full display , Bev waged a courageous fight against a final adversity while surrounded by her loving family.
Bev was born on July 3, 1955 into the Casper family of Buffalo, NY and was close to her devoted and hardworking muttie Paula.
Bev met Charles Feehan Jr and in 1975 they married. They soon welcomed Stefanie, Karie, Kelley, Charles III and Erin. Bev and Charles also welcomed her young brother, Baron, into their loving home where he became a big brother to their young family. Bev and Charles worked side by side for many years, first as a team driving trucks and then as entrepreneurs, to support their growing family. After Charles´ sudden passing on February 4, 1994, Bev showed her characteristic strength and will by becoming the sole provider, caregiver and parent to her still young family.
Bev wore many hats in life by choice while others were demanded by necessity. After raising her family Bev went back to school and earned her bachelors in psychology. Bev continued to work toward her masters degree and was currently enrolled in pursuit of that goal.
Bev was always willing to give the shirt off her back. She was a champion for the underdog. Her love of all, especially animals in need, knew no bounds. Her soul was young and vivacious. She lived with a vigor and vitality at a tempo that few could match. All the while overcoming any obstacle that dared to challenge. Bev left a mantle that will be carried by all of her children, grandchildren and dear loved ones, always with her presence by their side
