Beverly Anderson was born and raised in Sacramento, CA.
She moved to Bandon, OR in 1990, where she lived for 10 years. She was the Librarian for the PFLAG chapter there, and
helped start it up, with Myrna Dawson. When she moved to Freeland, she started a PFLAG chapter, which she kept going until
her health issues got to be too much. She was diagnosed with liver cancer in November, 2006. In the first picture below,
she is in the scooter with the "Debbies" at the Seattle Pride Parade; her daughter Terri is on her left.
Terri writes, "My favorite memory of mom was when
I was 10 or 11. I was practicing the piano, had made a mistake I guess, and was berating myself. I didn’t know mom was
in the room. A pillow hit me on my head. Surprised at this, I turned around. Mom was standing there with a very serious look
on her face. I thought, in a flash, I was in big trouble for something. No idea what. She then admonished me, “Do not
talk to my daughter like that!”
