Born July 8, 1932 to Walter and Olive Summers Henderson, she grew up and went to school in Grantsdale, Darby, and Hamilton where she graduated in 1950.

Married in 1956, they spent 63 years together. In addition to working alongside her husband in various Anthony stores, upon returning to the valley in 1988, Bev volunteered as a Pink Lady and worked in reception at Marcus Daly Hospital for many years until health forced her resignation.
