Beverley H. Koll passed away peacefully of natural causes on February 15, 2017. She was born July 13, 1928 in Boise, Idaho; a daughter of Jack and Geneva Hayes. Bev graduated from Boise High School in 1946 and later attended Boise Junior College and the University of Idaho, where she excelled in having a full social life filled with many wonderful friends and Theta sorority sisters.
Beverley married Ray F Koll on December 2, 1950 in Boise, Idaho. They resided in Boise the majority of their married life. Bev enjoyed keeping the books for Ray’s insurance agency.
Bev’s favorite pastimes include: watching sports (especially Boise State football), playing bridge, bingo, and most of all spending time with her family. She could always be found at her grandkids sporting events and was their biggest supporter in any endeavor they took on. Some of her fondest memories were spent traveling and playing golf with their many friends. Bev treasured her many friendships and considered Robert and Esther Henderlider as family.
Bev was preceded in death by Ray, an infant son Thomas, her parents, and brother Jack. She is survived by her daughters Jan Whitt and Lynda (Jim) Vance, and grandchildren Tom, Kris, Scott and Alex, Megan, and John.
