- About Us
Beverly J. “Bev” Duggan, 78, of Dubuque, Iowa formerly of Sarasota, FL passed away on September 9th, 2018 at home. Private family services will be held at a later date in the Cassville Cemetery. Leonard Funeral Home & Crematory, 2595 Rockdale Road is assisting the family.
On the 2nd day of May 1940, a moonbeam cast Bev’s light far and wide here on earth. Her love and support was given generously among the many kindred spirits she called Friend or Family. Left behind are 5 shooting stars and their comets as she is now the moonshadow. The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It's always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it's a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light.
Beverly is survived by, her children, Cheryl (Dave) Jansen, of East Dubuque, IL, Christy (Scot Freiburger) Benton, Dubuque, IA, Curtis (Jeanette Taylor) Herbst, of Galena, IL, Jodi (Joel) Oss, of Sarasota, FL, Jay (Sunny Moore) Duggan, of Dubuque, IA, her 11 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren, her aunts, Virginia Eudaley, Dubuque, IA, June Silverberg, San Juan Capistrano, CA, her uncle, Arnold “Skip” (Mary) Lang, Dubuque, IA, her niece, Robin (Steve) Welbes Kane, Cedar Rapids, IA, her nephews, Shelby Joseph Welbes, Cedar Rapids, IA, Dawson Peter Williams, Dubuque, IA
