Beverly was born December 8, 1931, to Anthony and Edna (Newling) Schlader in Lisbon, North Dakota. She grew up on the family farm outside of Lisbon and graduated from Lisbon High School.

She enjoyed quilting, journaling, camping with Ernie, crocheting, listening to country music, and spending time at the camper on Pelican Lake in Ashby, MN.
