Obituary of Beverly Lorenz

Beverly Lorenz was born December 21, 1933 in Los Angeles, California to David and Laura Mason.

Beverly grew up in Los Angeles, and met Robert Lorenz in 1957.  They were married August 2, 1958. They bought their first house together in California and had two children, Larry and Crystal.

Beverly's faith was very important to her.  When she married Bob, she was baptized in the Catholic faith.  Bev was an active member of the Holy Disciples church in Puyallup and the Holy Disciples Prayer Shawl group, leading the shawl group for many years. Beverly enjoyed sharing her love of knitting with people, including her daughter and the shawl group. She frequently gave new shawl group members needles or yarn to help get them started. Over the years, Bev loved making socks and hats for family and friends, and working on the prayer shawls was relaxing and very rewarding for Bev.  Her eyesight was fading over the last few years and it was more difficult to do knitting herself, but she still enjoyed talking about knitting and seeing what projects other people were working on. 

Beverly enjoyed life and doing things for others. Family and friends were an important part of Beverly's life and she loved making special occasion cards for them. She loved cooking, especially around the holidays and made wonderful caramels to share with family and friends. She traveled to various places around the US and Hawaii with friends and family. One of her favorite places to visit was Disneyland. Her older brother worked for Disney and visiting the park brought back good memories for Bev of her brother.

After a short battle with congestive heart failure, Beverly passed away on May 13, 2023 at Good Samaritan Hospital in Puyallup, WA at the age of 89.

Beverly is survived by her husband of 64 years, Robert, her son Larry and daughter Crystal (Juan). She is preceded in death by her parents, David and Laura Mason, brother Ed, and sister Gail.
