Obituary of Beverly Ann Frates

Beverly Ann Frates passed away peacefully Wednesday morning, Feb. 2, 2022. With her husband, Brent, and three children Tim, Brenda and Shelly close to her side, we said goodbye after Beverly endured many years with dementia. Beverly was a Christmas baby, born Dec. 25, 1943. She will be dearly missed by her husband Brent, who was her caregiver from the very beginning of her illness. He never left her side just as she was by his side for more than 60 years of marriage. With the exception of the time spent building houses during Brent's working career, you rarely saw them apart. Beverly was a stay-at-home mom raising three children. She is the daughter of Clarence and Ellora Wilson. She is preceded in death by her parents and an older brother Roger Wilson. Beverly is survived by her husband, Brent Frates; three children, Tim Frates (Catherine) of Montrose CO, Brenda Kyle (Kenny) of Fruitland ID and Shelly Carter (Bryan) of Meridian ID; a brother, Robert K. Wilson of Mesa AZ; and one other sibling. Beverly is also the grandmother of six grandchildren and four great grandchildren. She spent an adventurous childhood traveling all over the West with her family. Traveling continued with family and in-laws all over the western U.S. She enjoyed creating all kinds of crafts. Beverly crocheted a number of afghans and her painted ceramics enliven the homes of her children and relatives. Beverly loved to garden. She would plant annuals every spring and tend to them throughout the summer. Beverly would spend time with Brent's sisters, going to the mall, enjoying lunches out and playing dominos. She also loved to meet up with cousins, such as Mona, for more all-day shopping and lunch outing trips. Beverly also enjoyed and was very creative in crafts, sewing, painting and ceramics. One of the final creative things was crocheting lots of potholders until she no longer had the ability. Most important, Beverly's legacy lives on as she was an amazing teacher to bless her daughters and granddaughters these timeless crafts. Travels included North Carolina to visit with her son, Tim and his family. Also with her daughter Shelly, son-in-law Bryan and grandkids Emily and Sydney, to Disneyland. Beverly and Brent would often go for a ride and would stop by to visit with Brenda and Kenny. Most of all, Beverly adored and loved her husband Brent, always loving to be with him, make meals for him and cook huge family holiday dinners. While it may seem simple, even just taking care of the house with such grace to enrich the lives whom she loved dearest, her family. Grandchildren include Tim and Catherine's daughters, Amber and Meredith; Brenda and Kenny's daughters, Kimberly and Kaci; and Shelly and Bryan's daughters, Emily and Sydney. Great grandchildren include Kenley, Brayden and Karlee, Kimberly Pirrie's children and Genevieve, Meredith and David Leslie's child. A family memorial service will be held later in the spring.
