Beverly was born July 21, 1929, in Fulton, to John and Dena (Sikkema) DeWeerdt. She was educated in the Fulton Grade School and was a graduate of Fulton High School. Beverly married Harold L. Bonneur on September 26, 1947. They celebrated 70 years together. Beverly was dedicated to being a loving mother, a hardworking farm wife and faithful church member. She enjoyed caring for her family by taking care of her aunts, her own mothers and her children. Farming was a family business where she worked right along with her husband and her family. Being a Sunday School teacher, member of Hannah Mission, choir member, member of the Gideons Auxiliary, and part of the Evangelism Team were a few ways she showed her love for her Lord. She also organized the meals for many funerals over the years. Working alongside the people of Trinity Reformed Church brought her much love and joy.

There are nineteen great-grandchildren.
