Beverly Jean Crenshaw
December 7, 1926 - July 25, 2017

Beverly Jean Minton Crenshaw passed away peacefully at the House of Hope in Wichita Falls, Texas, on Tuesday, July 25, 2017. Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. on Friday, July 28, 2017, at First Presbyterian Church of Wichita Falls with Pastor Isaac Butterworth presiding. Graveside services follow at Crestview Memorial Park Mausoleum. Arrangements are under the direction of Lunn’s Colonial Funeral Home.

Beverly was born on December 7, 1926, in Wichita Falls to Marie and J.S. Minton. She graduated from Old High and then attended North Texas State University in Denton for several years. Returning to Wichita Falls to work at a local bank, Beverly met and married Captain Joe R. Crenshaw, a local man who had completed his service in Naples, Italy. They were married on September 25, 1948, and had three sons. After the children reached school age, Beverly completed her B.A. in music from Midwestern State University and became an accomplished organist and pianist. She played for local churches, high school and community theatre musicals, and clubs, culminating her musical career with a solo concert performance at the First Methodist Church.

Beverly contributed endless hours of volunteer work to her community. She was a sweetheart of the Rotary Club, draping flags about town before holidays and never missing a meeting. She served the less fortunate through Faith Mission and the Food Bank, called weekly bingo for nearly twenty years at the Presbyterian Manor, was a member of the Woman’s Forum and the Woman’s Study Club and an organizer/supporter of Spring Fling sponsored by the Museum of Art.

A lifelong supporter of the arts, Beverly enjoyed opera, literature, and the symphony. On the lighter side, she was a devout fan of the “Texans” basketball team, a skier, a fisherwoman, an avid bridge player, and a dynamic hostess. She and Joe were often seen and admired on the dance floor of social events. As much as they loved and enjoyed their home town, Beverly and Joe were world travelers who appreciated adventure, historic landmarks, and exotic cuisine. She was a good wife and mother who lived and loved a full life that centered on family and friends.

Beverly was preceded in death by her husband Joe, her parents and a grandson, Scotty Crenshaw Jr. Survivors include: eldest son Kirby Crenshaw, his wife, Katherine, their daughters Robin Elaine Crenshaw and Kelly Marie Holm and husband Nate Holm, and great-granddaughter Halle Josephine Holm; middle son Randy Crenshaw and his wife, Nancy; youngest son Scott Crenshaw, his son Michael Minton Crenshaw and his daughter Katy Crehan Crenshaw, and great-grandson John Raymon Crenshaw and great-granddaughter Siena Michael Crenshaw.
