Beryl graduated from Calvin Coolidge High School and attended the University of Maryland. She worked for The National Institute of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. She and Carl lived in Glen Cove, NY for 30 years. Carl was Head Golf Professional at North Shore Country Club and played professional golf all over the world, while Beryl managed the golf shop and raised their three children. They moved to Dandridge, TN in 1989. She was a dedicated and loyal Christian, wife, mother, grandmother and friend.
Beryl was the eternal optimist and a free spirit. She traveled the world and all over the country with Carl and her family. She never met a stranger and her smile would light up a room. Beryl lived a wholesome life and was an excellent cook, gardener and homemaker. She had an avid thirst for knowledge, wanted to read everything, and even went back college to take a history class. Beryl had capacity to enjoy everything life offered her, from the simple beauty of her flowers to the majesty of the smoky mountains. She was proud of wherever she lived and was the consummate tour guide, whether, it was a small town in Long Island, a road trip into NYC or trips to the Smokies and Knoxville’s Market Square. Beryl was an animal lover and had a special place in her heart for all veterans and service personnel. She had an ear for music and enjoyed dancing. Her happiest moments were spent with family and friends on the holidays. Beryl loved God from a very early age and raised her family with strong Christian values. We believe she will be told well done, thy good and faithful servant.
