She attended Sterling schools, was Senior Class president, and graduated salutatorian of her class. Following high school, she attended Cameron State Agricultural College. She married Clarence Glasgow on Dec. 10,1954, and they resided and worked on a farm near Elgin. Beverly began working for the Comanche County Clerk's office in 1954, serving as Comanche County Clerk from 1981 until retirement in 1989.
Following retirement, Beverly was a faithful volunteer at Comanche County Memorial Hospital gift shop for 28 years until her recent illness prevented her from continuing. She also served, along with her husband Clarence, many years with the Oklahoma Farm Bureau. Beverly was a devoted long time member of First Baptist Church in Elgin, where she volunteered and participated in many capacities.

Beverly was a 35-year survivor of breast cancer. She believed in working hard her entire life and she maintained the farm until just a couple of years ago with loving support of family, friends and neighbors. She was the kindest of ladies with always a word of encouragement for anyone she talked to. She touched the hearts of many people during her lifetime and will be dearly missed by all.
