Obituary for Beverly Jean Bills

Beverly Jean Bills, 80, Springfield, MO died November 6, 2018, at Cox Hospital after a tragic accident in her home.
Beverly was born December 22, 1937, in Springfield, Missouri, to Paul and Jerry (Crum) Adams. She was united in marriage to Frankie Bills on August 16, 1959. Beverly taught vocal and instrumental music for Ash Grove Elementary Schools for 30 years where she touched the lives of many students. She was a faithful member of Hamlin Baptist Church for over 80 years, instructing children in Sunday School, acting as treasurer of the WMU, and serving as church wedding coordinator, as well as utilizing her musical talents in the adult choir.
After her retirement from teaching in 1989, she and her best friend, Donna Warren, opened a business known as the Glitz Girls. They created jewelry and clothes for 22 years which were two of Beverly’s favorite things.
Beverly or “BB” as her family called her, enjoyed everything she did and wanted everyone to share her enthusiasm. From needlework to golf, travel to shopping for a bargain, her positive nature was contagious.
She was preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her husband, Frankie; her sister, Debby and husband, Arnie Bader of Springfield; their daughter Stacey Wolf and son, Kyle of Springfield; six sets of in-laws: Violet Asher of Springfield; Phyllis Sutherland of Wichita, KS; Susie and Paul Nease of Kansas City, MO; Gary and Glenna Bills of Phoenix, AZ; Sandy and Richard Lindsey and Donna and Eddie Scott both of Springfield. In addition, she is survived by a host of nieces and nephews and best friends Rollie and Donna Warren.
