Beverly was born in Kinmundy on February 18, 1935, a daughter of the late Paul Gray Hanna and the late Alice Audrey (Telford ) Hanna.
Beverly worked as a telephone operator (1950’s), elementary education teacher (Kinmundy, 1960’s) and as a homemaker. Over the years she enjoyed baking, canning, making crafts, sewing, crocheting, quilting, reading and spending time with family.

Also surviving are sister Whitney Mahnke of Iuka, her brother John (Linda) Hanna of Kell, and many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Earl Teal, and her brother Bob Hanna.
Beverly is now with Jesus and the angels.
