Beverly was born Feb. 19, 1928 in Solon, in her grandparent’s home, the daughter of Ronnie and Mildred Gleusing Kessler. No matter where she went, Iowa was always her home. She graduated from Solon High School, class of 1946. After high school, she worked at Killian’s Department Store, and Collins Radio both in Cedar Rapids. Bev married her high school sweetheart, Cliff Lamansky, in 1947. Cliff passed away in 1949. Bev was remarried to Darrell Rebik in 1952. They lived in Illinois, Minnesota and Iowa. She worked at West Clock’s in Illinois and Dayton’s Department Store in Minnesota. In Minneapolis, their daughters Kim and Jill were born, and so was the best job of her life, mother and homemaker. Her love was endless for her family. Her family and friends were always in her heart. The last years of her life were made so special and fun, having Jen and Sam, her grandchildren, living with her. A lot of their friends became like family. She always felt blessed.
Beverly is survived by her daughter, Kim (Ben) Griffith of Cedar Rapids; granddaughter Jen Corrigan of Cedar Falls; grandson Sam Corrigan of Cedar Rapids; and a son-in-law Bob Corrigan of Solon.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husbands; a daughter, Jill Corrigan, who died August 16, 2003; and her grandparents.
Memorials may be directed to the Solon American Legion and or the Solon Public Library in her name.
