June Hart Beveridge

Travel With a Beveridge has taken a break, due to a death in the family

June Hart Beveridge, 80, of Third Street, Webster, died Friday, May 21, 2010, in her home following a long struggle with emphysema.

She was born July 2, 1929, in Newell, Fayette County, Pa., a daughter of Howard Swope and Iva Dail Coughenour Hart.

On July 5, 1952, she married James Robert Beveridge, who died March 5, 2007.

Mrs. Beveridge was a career woman most of her adult life, having retired in 2009 from Rostraver Township, where she worked as a police clerk. She also was retired from Gerald Vitale Construction of North Charleroi, where she worked as office manager and bookkeeper. She also was a notary, and just recently had started blogging, anonymously.

She loved to crochet, and had belonged to a card club with her friends for more than five decades. She also was an avid self-taught genealogist.

Mrs. Beveridge was recently accepted into the Daughters of the American Revolution as a direct descendant of Henry Lenox Sheppard, an early Westmoreland County settler who served in the Continental Army.

She was a long-time member of the Rostraver Township Recreation Commission, on which she served as board secretary.

Surviving are three sons: James L. Beveridge and wife, Kristie, of Lewisville, Texas; Scott Beveridge of Webster; and G. Kelly Beveridge and wife, Charity, of Greensburg; seven grandchildren, Casey, Shannon, Dillon and Victoria Beveridge of Texas and Kami, Kyle and Kenzie Beveridge of Greensburg; two sisters, Shirley Rozik of Greensburg and Bonnie Rozik of Webster; and a brother, James Hart, also of Webster; and numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by four brothers, Harold, William, Robert and Herk Hart; and a sister, Nancy Hart.

Arrangements were being handled by James C. Stump Funeral Home Inc.
