Beverly J. Kasprzyk, (Beverly Rowe) age 81, passed away peacefully surrounded by family, at her home in Tichigan, WI on April 29th. Bev was born August 10th, 1938, the daughter of the late Edward and Arlene Rowe, and sister of the late Robert Rowe. She graduated from Bayview High school, and married at the age of 20, on September 27th, 1958.
She and her beloved late husband, Carl Kasprzyk, (Kasper) were able to celebrate over 50 years of loving marriage during their lifetime. Together Bev and Carl successfully operated their business Kasper Auto Trim, and they regularly enjoyed attending car shows, forging countless meaningful friendships over many happy years. Bev also owned and operated Hidden Valley Greenhouse and spent many seasons sharing her talent and passion for growing beautiful flowers.
Bev was a devoted and loving mother, survived by her daughter Karen (Perry) Gosselin, & son Don (Cherie) Kasprzyk. She expressed gratefulness for her family and friends generously and spoke often about how proud she was of her grandchildren. Bev was a supportive and encouraging grandmother to Rebecca, the late Jacob, DJ, Jesse, and Hannah.
Bev also had a genuine, and reciprocal affection that she shared with animals. She nurtured many pets throughout her lifetime with patience and care, most recently her faithful dog, the late “Buffy,” as well as her feral country-side cats that returned to greet her outside her home for over a decade.
Bev courageously battled cancer over the last year, and yet her trials and times of long-suffering manifested in ways that magnified her resilience, joyful optimism, and hopeful spirit. With each encounter she continued to bless others around her. She lived her life selflessly and treated everyone she met with kindness.
Bev openly expressed at times how much she missed Carl, though without regret, as she reflected on her devotion and tenderness toward him until their final moments shared together. She lovingly remembered and shared how Carl had once told her, “Bev, you’re my angel.” She shared in a moment of fond laughter and smiles with her surrounding family while looking upon a button Carl had once created for her which read, “God loves you, and so does Carl.”
Bev’s empathy for others never exhausted. During conversation, and even from afar, her smile and warmth could be felt through her gentle and cheerful voice. She spoke often to express gratitude, extend appreciation, encourage, and many times, to help comfort another. Her incredible strength was quietly and calmly revered, veiled by the loving softness of her heart and graceful compassion she extended to all she knew. She approached death and transition to heaven in the same manner she lived all her life, with courage, love, and incredible grace.
She is further survived by loving family and countless friends. Special thanks and deep appreciation to the dedicated staff in the oncology department at Greenwold Clinic, and her loving nurses Pam and Suzy.
Mom…Deep in our hearts you’ll always stay, Loved and missed every day.
