Obituary

Beverly Armstrong Stafford Chambers Davidson Edwards was called home on January 15, 2020 in Parksley, Virginia. Beverly was seventy years old.

Beverly is survived by her husband, Zachary Edwards; her children, Vaughn, Nakida, Daleek, Darrell, Jerris, Jantrice, and Dayvette; her sister, Sharon; and brother, Garnet; twenty-one grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; two aunts; six sisters-in-law; two daughters-in-law; two sons-in-law; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Beverly was born on January 18, 1949 in Brooklyn, New York, to Simeon and Hazel Armstrong. Beverly’s mother died when she was two years old and she was raised by her grandparents, Willie and Mattie New. Beverly attended George W. Wingate High School and studied Social Work/Addictions at SUNY Empire State College.

Beverly’s grandparents raised her in the way of the Lord. It was mandatory that she attended religious instructions and church every Sunday. In 1976, Beverly was introduced to Alcoholics Anonymous, there, her life through God's Grace miraculously changed.

Beverly was loving and giving, not only to her family, but also to her community. Over the course of her career, Beverly worked for the Children's Aide Society, The Graduate Center of CCNY, CUNY York College, the Cumberland Diagnostic Center, and was the Director of The Jericho Project (a Women's Shelter in New York City.)

In 1993, Beverly moved to Parksley, Virginia and opened Dave's Corner, a crafts and event planning business. She later accepted a position as Supervisor of Family Support at Resource Mothers, a support program for teen mothers. She retired from this position in 2013.

Beverly helped people the majority of her life and her love for helping people did not stop with her friends and family. She enjoyed everything from writing, music, dancing, event planning, and traveling with friends. We will all remember Beverly as a thoughtful, loving, caring, and comedic person.

Beverly was preceded in death by her parents, Simeon and Hazel Armstrong; grandparents, Willie and Mattie New; brothers, Larry and Wayne; and husbands, George M. Stafford, David L. Chambers, and Gary Davidson.

As I sit here tonight after the burial of my Mommy/Bestfriend/Twins. I am remember all the times we shared with my 3, Turtle Dove, Lil Man and, Mini Me. My husband and Mommy had a relationship that I thought my mom would not approve of. She always asked about him and when is coming with me, we had most of the grandbabies,

Memories are gifts out hearts receive to bring gentle comfort as we grieve. My memory of Beverly is Beverly going to Carter Cadets drum and bugle corps to practice every weekend, socializing at Stuyvesant Community Ctr., preparing her homemade Swedish meatballs (my favorite) and Ms. New making cornbread stuffing. Can smell it now! Beverly is gone now and definitely willl not be forgotten. Rest in peace my friend.
