Beverly Buresh

Beverly “Bev” Ann Buresh was born on August 21, 1943, in Lancaster, Missouri, the daughter of Ray and Eunice (Forsythe) Samuels. She graduated from Dinsdale High School in 1961.  Bev had several jobs in the area, but was most well known for being the activity coordinator in the Alzheimer’s unit at Sunrise Hill Care Center in Traer.  Bev was united in marriage to Chuck Buresh and they later divorced.  She enjoyed crossword puzzles, going to coffee and ice cream with the ladies, and spending time with family and friends.  Bev died at the age of 76 on May 20, 2020, at UnityPoint Allen Hospital in Waterloo following a brief illness.  She was preceded in death by her parents.  Bev is survived by four children, Deb Samuels of Loveland, Colorado, Rod (Brook) Vogel of Weatherford, Texas, Jason (Melisha Westbrook) Buresh of Morrison, Colorado, and Tami Jo Buresh of Englewood, Colorado; a granddaughter, Kalika Westbrook; and a brother, David (Barb) Samuels of Marshalltown.


The visitation will be on Tuesday, May 26, 2020, from 4:00 to 7:00 PM at the Overton Funeral Home in Traer.  This will be a drive-through visitation, so guests are asked to stay in their vehicles and the family will greet them.  The service will be private with burial at Buckingham Cemetery.
