Beverly Jean Conboy was taken for a higher calling Saturday, Sept. 10, 2011, after complications with a brave and ongoing battle with breast cancer.
She was born Oct. 25, 1951, in Cokato to Milton and Marjorie Mattson. She became a wife, mother, and grandmother – and truly an angel who walked amongst us.
She had a brother, Gayle; sisters, Bernelle, and twin sister, Barb.
Beverly graduated from Cokato High School in 1969. She met her husband at Augsburg College, where they both graduated in the class of 1973. Doug and Bev were married Dec. 15, 1973.
Bev is survived by her husband, Doug; daughter, Lindsay Bilgin; sons, John, Jared, and Alex; son-in-law, Mesut Bilgin; daughters-in-law, Diana Conboy and Lisa Conboy; and grandchildren, Sladen, Stella, and Max.
She was the most caring, accepting, and giving person we have ever known. We feel eternally grateful to have spent our lives in her presence. She taught us how to live, be grateful for what we have, and showed us the true importance of our life here on earth.
There was always a warmth in being around her, always open arms when you needed them, always an understanding person to listen, and always a person to lift you through a tough situation with ease. Because of Bev, our family never lived in a house ... she always made it a home.
She loved spending time with her family and friends, antiquing, art, photography, and traveling.
We will all miss you greatly but look forward to eternity with you in the presence of the Lord.
The Day God
Called You Home
God looked around His garden and found an empty place.
He then looked down upon his earth and saw your loving face.
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.
His Garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering, he knew you were in pain.
And knew that you would never get well on earth again.
He saw your path was difficult, He closed your tired eyes,
He whispered to you “Peace be Thine” and gave you wings to fly.
When we saw you sleeping so calm and free of pain, we would not wish you back to earth to suffer once again.
You’ve left us precious memories, your love will be our guide, You live on through your children, you’re always by our side.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you on the day God called you home.
A memorial service is being planned with details coming at a later date.
