Beverly J. Gesner, age 71, of Johnstown, passed away peacefully on September 26, 2012, at the Mountain Valley Hospice House, Gloversville.
Beverly's life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by her understood the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. She truly enjoyed life. She enjoyed knitting, baking cookies, gardening, and could spend hours enjoying the simple things, like sitting in the warm sun with a good book and her dog, Missy by her side. Beverly was a devoted mother, grandmother and friend.
Beverly was born on June 29, 1941, in Manhattan, a daughter of the late Theodore Leroy and Ruth Carr Leroy. She worked for many years as a medical assistant in Rockland County, N.Y. and worked at the Lexington Center in Johnstown until her retirement.
She is survived by one son, Roy Gesner and his wife, Caroline of Warwick; and two grandsons, Christopher Gesner and Matthew Gesner.
In keeping with Beverly's wishes, there will be no calling hours or funeral services.
Cremation was at Vale Crematory, Schenectady.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in her memory to Mountain Valley Hospice, 108 Steele Avenue, Gloversville, N.Y. 12078.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the Barter & Donnan Funeral Home, 1 N. Melcher Street, Johnstown.
