Beverly “Bev” Marburger, 69, of Beach City, passed away after a lengthy, hard-fought battle with cancer, Saturday, February 4, 2017 in care of the Kobacker House at Columbus, Ohio.

A daughter of Ethel Aschenbrenner, Beverly was born October 16, 1947 at Columbus, Ohio.

Beverly graduated from Washington Hospital School of Nursing and proudly served her community as a registered nurse for many years.  Most of those years were spent with the Park Village Health Care Center.  Beverly eventually became the Director of Nursing at Park Village and continued working there for over 10 years.  She also served as the President of the Beach City Community Improvement Corporation.

Beverly’s biggest joy in life was her family.  Her life was brightened with every minute she spent with her children and grandchildren.  Together they made many memories, including camping at Salt Fork and listening to her amazing stories while gathered around the fire.
