Beverly was born April 15, 1910, in La Crosse. She attended Viroqua and Westby grade schools and is a graduate of Sparta High School. She married Alf “Sandy” G.

Her entire life was steeped in music. In the late 1920s and early 1930s, she worked in a music store and played the piano for a dance band in and around La Crosse. While in Medford, she played the organ for Community Evangelical Lutheran Church and provided lessons for clients of the Hammond Organ Co.
