Beverly Neville

d. March 16, 2020

North Austin Location

Beverly Jean was the only child born to Lora and Wilbert Richardson on September 3, 1953. She was a lifelong resident of Austin and graduated from the “old” Anderson High School. She was never the shy type but rather very vocal and earned the nickname “walkie talkie” when she was a child. She worked as an administrative assistant for Huston-Tillotson College, worked for Texas Instruments, and then for the State of Texas before retiring. She made no secret that she loved the Lord. She accepted Christ as Lord and Savior and brought many to Christ while attending the New Testament Church. Later, she served in the choir at David’s Chapel Missionary Baptist Church, until an illness that limited her mobility around the city. Beverly didn’t let the illness keep her from worship, she embraced TV evangelism and was particularly fond of T. D. Jakes and Joel Osteen. She encouraged her three children to also be disciples of Christ. “Have a good day at school, and don’t forget to pray all day,” is something that she would tell them every day before sending them to school. She was very proud to witness the first African-American family take the White House and frequently posted pictures of the Obamas on her Facebook account.

Beverly had an infectious sense of humor and a big laugh; she was witty, street smart, a go-getter, bold, courageous, and very independent. She reached out to people that most would turn away. She gave to the poor, clothed the needy, fed those who had no food, served the elderly in the community, and often spoke to hurting families during their times of bereavement.

She made her earthly departure on March 16, 2020, leaving to celebrate her memory, sons, Elder Terry Carr (Ronnetta), Nathan Hargrove, and only daughter Tamie Frierson (Garey), grandsons Jalen Carr, Garen Frierson, Gavin Frierson, Gabriel Frierson, granddaughters Alexis Frierson, Aysha Carr, Kyra Carr, great-grandson Landon Washington-Carr, best friend “sister” Vickie Taylor Jones, closest cousin-“Tuts” Johnnie Burns, a close friend who held her until her last breath, Mike Martinez, and a host of other relatives and friends.

Beverly’s final Facebook post: “Sometimes, God allows the challenges just so other people will see He is God. He’ll use you as an example. They may not have believed before, but when they see God show out in your life when they see you beat cancer when they see you break the addiction when they see you set a new standard, go places you never dreamed, they won’t be able to deny the hand of God on your life.
