Beverly Jean Throop (Doll) passed from her family’s embrace to the Lord’s, on April 1, 2023. She never did suffer Fools, and was gone in two shakes of a lambs tail.
Beverly was born in Los Angeles, California, on August 29, 1934, as a proud daughter of the Golden West, to Adna and Emma Doll. She later moved to Sacramento, where she met and married the love of her life, Wilbur, after a long correspondence while he was stationed overseas. She briefly lived in Washington before hopty-doodling on over to Klamath Falls, Oregon. She made this her home in 1967, and lived on the lakeshore until her death.
An avid lover of golf (we predict she’s on the back nine right now), she told anyone standing still, and quite a few on the move, about her three holes-in-one. A one-time ladies club champion at Reames Golf & Country Club, she adored being on the green and (unsuccessfully) teaching her grandchildren the finer points of the game. While at Reames, she could also be found poolside with her grandchildren and a glass of Sprite.
When the weather was inclement, you could find her indoors as a regular bowler with a local Ladies League.
Beverly loved volunteering for her church, Peace Memorial Presbyterian. She could often be found assisting with the bazaars, quilt shows, and other special events. She was also a regular Red Cross volunteer.
Her favorite pastimes in recent years were watching QVC, chippies and other wildlife, bird migrations on the lake (of which she had a particularly good view), working in her yard, eating popsicles, and shouting at drivers she deemed recklessly speeding.
Beverly is preceded in death by her parents; her brothers Bob Burnside and Don Doll; her husband Wilbur Throop, and her beloved daughter Tina Throop.
She is survived by her children Tim Throop and wife Janet, and Tammy Cosand (Throop) and husband Steve; her grandchildren Mariah Cosand and spouse Kirsten, Savanah Cosand, Talythah Peña (Cosand) and husband Tavo, and Kalistah Cosand, as well as her great-grandchildren Alyanah Peña, and Fynn and Rye Cosand. All have agreed to become warriors in Beverly’s vendetta against pinecones.
She is loved and will be missed. Oaky-doaks.
