Beverly Joyce Wahl

May 30, 1934 ~ September 13, 2019 (age 85)

Beverly Joyce Wahl, 85 of Lowell went to be with the Lord September 13th 2019 at her home

surrounded by her children. She was born May 30th 1934 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the

daughter of Alfred and Evelyn Bolson. Beverly was a woman who was always concerned about

everyone else’s happiness and welfare instead of her own. She and her husband Earl who

passed in 2010 were married July 19th 1952 and were married almost 58 years at his

passing. She worked as a secretary and administrative assistant in her early career, and

was administrative assistant to the engineers and programmers who developed the first

air traffic control systems in the late 1960s and early 1970s at the Univac corporation in

St. Paul, Minnesota. She and her husband and 3 children relocated to Northwest Arkansas

in the fall of 1972 to be close to her parents who retired on Beaver Lake in 1971.

She was then an office manager for an insurance agency in Springdale before becoming

administrative assistant to the Director of the Community Development Block Grant

Program for the City of Springdale prior to assuming the directors position. During her

25 years working for the city of Springdale she was responsible for the upgrading of both

infrastructure and housing for both the elderly and low income citizens of Springdale

and always fought for the needs of those less fortunate. After retirement from the city

she and Earl both traveled the country visiting friends and wintering

in Winter Haven Florida.

After her husband’s Earls passing in 2010 she had open heart surgery and suffered a stroke

but in her usual fashion  recovered almost completely except for her speech, but that did not

slow her down. She spent her subsequent years doing crafting to supply multiple

flea market booths with her devoted daughter Kimberly and creating custom greeting cards for

everyone she knew. She loved spending time with her great Grandchildren. She was a member of 

Hickory Creek Baptist Church and her family appreciates their caring support after                                                      

her husbands passing and her subsequent illnesses. 

 

Survivors include her brother Roger Bolson and wife  Ruth of Bloomington Minnesota, brother Ronald Bolson and wife Fran of Stevensville Michigan,

and sister in law Harriett and husband Jerome of Alexandria Minnesota, son Kevin and wife Lynne, daughter Kimberly and husband Brian, and son

Michael and wife Dawn as well as 3 grandchildren Andrea, Tyler Casey and Darrin. Also step grandchildren Channing , Madison, and Hayden and 6

greatgrandchildren.

Visitation will be at Backstrom-Pyeatte Funeral Home in Springdale on Wednesday, September 18th from 5-7pm.

Funeral service to be held Thursday, September 19th at Hickory Creek Baptist Church at 3pm.

Family requests memorials in her honor to be sent to the American Heart Association or the

Hickory Creek Baptist Church Building Fund.
