Bev was born in Norwich, NY on January 13, 1936.  She was the daughter of the late Harold and Winifred Thornton Anderson.  Beverly attended Norwich schools. She married her lifelong love, Lyle L. Peak, on June 28, 1952.  They were married for 62 years.  Together they raised their three daughters.  Beverly was a seamstress.  She worked for many years at Crescent Corset in Cincinnatus and ended her career at Vesta in McGraw.  After retirement she volunteered for many years at Cortland-Chenango Rural Services in Cincinnatus.  Beverly was first and foremost a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother.  She devoted herself to the care of her family.  Her home was always filled with love and laughter.  She loved music.  She supported Lyle all of the many years that he played in country bands.  Saturday nights were her time to dance to Lyle’s music at the Solon Sportsman Club.  She had a beautiful voice and often sang with the band.

She is survived by her children, Sherry (David) Knickerbocker of Taylor, LuAnn (Neil) Glassford of Willet, and Teresa (Corky) Carr of Cincinnatus.  She also leaves behind her grandchildren, Kiplind L. Angle of Whitney Point, Kristopher William (Kate) Angle of Cortland, Kyle Brandon Angle of Sherburne, Kodie Lee Angle of Taylor, Rebecca (Shawn Rowe) Knickerbocker of South Otselic, Tracie (Del) McKee of Greene, Cory (Cristal Dudek) Glassford of Willet, Amy (Kevin) Guernsey of North Pitcher, and Natasha (Luke) Burhans of Sempronius; 18 great-grandchildren; 6 great-great-grandchildren; a sister, Cheryl (Ron) Johnson of North Norwich, brothers, Roger (Diane) Anderson of Wolcott, Randy (Karen) Anderson of Weaubleau, Missouri; and sisters-in-law, Catherine Svenson of Oxford and Jeanette Anderson of German.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Lyle Peak, on August 6, 2014, and siblings Carl Svenson, Jr., Robert Anderson and Matilda Reynolds.
