Beverly S. Goulet, 67, of North Port, Florida passed away peacefully Monday, May 11, 2020, at her North Port home. She is survived by her sister, Sharon Smith, her daughter, Lisa Johnson, son-in-law Glenn, and grandchildren Hailey and Liam.
Beverly was born in 1952 and grew up in MD. Spending most of her life in Silver Spring, MD, she retired to North Port in 2013, making many new and cherished friends.
For 29 years, Beverly was an operating room nurse at Washington Hospital Center. She taught countless nurses proper technique in the OR and through this learned teaching was her great love. No matter the subject, she found joy in sharing her knowledge and skill. After an initial bout of breast cancer, she wanted to give back some of the wonderful support she received. Given a prayer shawl for comfort during treatment, Beverly began making them for fellow cancer patients. During this time, she taught many people to crochet, her favorite hobby. She continued to teach crochet in North Port, where a lack of experience on the part of the student only made her more determined to help them succeed.
Beverly was known by many for her friendliness and humor. She often said, “Don’t look in the rearview, keep moving forward.” and “It’s nice to be nice.” By all accounts, she lived her life in this fashion and will be dearly missed by family and friends alike.
In compliance with current guidelines to help prevent the further spread of Covid 19, and to protect our most at-risk individuals, a Celebration of Life for Beverly will be announced later this year when safe, unrestricted gatherings may once again be conducted. Please return to this remembrance page for updated service information. Thank you, the Goulet family.
If you knew Beverly, you know how much she loved dogs, especially her own, Roxie. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations are suggested in Beverly’s name to the Suncoast Humane Society.
