Bev was always busy with projects, and especially enjoyed decorative painting, genealogy, reading, and decorating homes. She had not only the Skaneateles home to furnish & decorate, but also the family homestead “Quimby Hill”, in Barnet, Vt., where they spent their summers after retirement, enjoying gatherings of family and friends, gardening, and wildlife. She was a kind and loving wife, mother and grandmother, always ready to assist and encourage both family and friends. She will be greatly missed by those lucky enough to have known her.
Survivors include daughter Sharon G. Nichols (Ed Marx) of Skaneateles, N.Y.; two sons Richard S. Quimby of Worcester, MA and David O. Quimby (Eileen) of Camillus, NY.; a sister Claudette S. Macey; 3 grandchildren, Tiffany Nichols (Colin Brown), Tyler Nichols (Morgan Ellithorpe), and Grace Quimby; 2 step-grandchildren, Amy and Christina Johnston; 3 great-grandchildren, Parker Brown, Madison Brown, and Owen Nichols; double cousin Bernice Quimby of Monroe, NH and several nephews and nieces.
At Bev’s request there will be no calling hours. A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, April 21st at 10:30am at the United Methodist Church, Skaneateles. A burial service will be held in May in Barnet, Vt. Donations may be made to the Skaneateles Methodist Church. To send condolences visit: robertdgrayfuneralhome.com.
