Bev was born in Minneapolis on November 9, 1924. She was but 5 when her father died, leaving her mother and 3 siblings to carry on through the hardscrabble Depression years. But, they were a joyful unit residing in a welcoming home — a family knit together with strong ties of laughter and love.

On February 6, 1948 mom married her forever partner, Kenneth Schultz. Married for 66 years, they remained inseparable until Ken’s passing in 2014 at the age of 93. Preceded in death by beloved siblings, Roland Nygaard, and Joyce (Nygaard) Merrick; granddaughter, Sarah Griffin. Bev is survived by dear brother, Ed Nygaard; daughters, Susan Thompson (Larry), Judy Torgerson (Ron); sons, David Schultz (Meg), Bruce Schultz (Jane); 8 grandchildren; 7 great-grandchildren, and many loving in-laws, nieces and nephews
