Beverly, daughter of Lincoln and Clara Flados, was born June 30, 1931, in Britton, S.D. Her younger years were spent in Rutland and Lemmon, S.D., prior to settling in Bowman, where she graduated from high school in 1949. Following high school, Bev attended Presentation School of Nursing in Aberdeen, S.D., where she earned her degree as a registered nurse. It was during this time she met the love of her life, John T. "Jack" Kasper, and they were married in Bowman on June 10, 1953.
Bev and Jack joyfully welcomed their first two daughters, Kris and Patti, in San Antonio, Texas, where Jack was serving in the U.S. Air Force. Upon his discharge in 1959, the family moved to Glendive, Mont., where they made their home for the next 15 years. It was here where Bev and Jack completed their family, adding two more daughters, Janet and Joayne. In 1974, the family moved to Bismarck. After Jack passed away in 1994, Bev continued to live in Bismarck.
After working as a nurse in Bowman and San Antonio, her caregiving skills extended to all aspects of her life as she raised her family and cared lovingly for others. Bev enjoyed sewing and embroidery, reading, and was an avid bridge player. Gathering with family and friends and attending her grandchildren's activities was of utmost importance to her. She was also an active volunteer, especially at the Bismarck Emergency Food Pantry and her church. Bev will be remembered for her quick wit and sense of humor that entertained many until her last day.
Beverly is survived by her daughters, Kristin (Rock) Stewart, Grafton, Patricia (Al) Aldinger, Glendive, Janet Rott, Bismarck, and Joayne (Monte) Weinmann, Bismarck; her grandchildren, Shelley Stewart (fiancé Ryan Holweger), Ross Stewart, Eric (Karla) Aldinger, Alex (Charlotte) Aldinger, Kyle Rott, Sydney (Benjamin) Chapman, and Jenna Goecke; six great-grandchildren, Braylon, Kellen, Emery, Brandt, Benson, and Brynn; her sisters, Joayne Hogoboom, Jeanne (Gordon) Campbell, and LaVonne Lutz; and several nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Jack; her parents; her son-in-law, Joel Rott; and her brothers-in-law, Donald Hogoboom and James Lutz.
Memorials in Bev's name may be made to the Bismarck Emergency Food Pantry, 725 Memorial Highway, Suite B, Bismarck, ND 58504.
