The family moved to Richland, Washington when she was twelve years old, then to Kennewick, Washington. She grew up in Kennewick and went to Kennewick High School. She worked part-time as a telephone operator and during school, she met Richard Dean Pyle. Beverly graduated high school in the summer of 1954. On November 5, 1954 she married Richard Dean Pyle. Beverly lost her father, William, in 1971 and her mother, Helen, in 1995.

Bev worked in the food industry and started in the kitchen at Kadlec hospital in 1981. She worked there for 18 years until retiring in 1999.

Beverly dedicated her life whole-heartedly to Jehovah God by water baptism in 1961. She would always give the bible’s message of God’s kingdom to those who would listen. She was strong in the preaching work even ‘till the end.
Beverly had many hobbies such as oil painting, and making and collecting porcelain dolls; many of which she gave to her grandchildren. She liked to travel with her husband Richard to the mountains, but the beach was her favorite. They both made a once in a lifetime trip to New York, and to Disney World in Florida.
