  • Notes 
    • Obituary: Beverly Hanks Nicholes, age 84, passed away peacefully July 13, 2013 surrounded by her loving family. She was born on June 28, 1929 to Dora Cassity and Howard Arthur Hanks in Salt Lake City. Beverly grew up on the Avenues and was the oldest of three children. She attended East High School where she met the love of her life, Gordon Nicholes. Beverly graduated from the University of Utah in Elementary Education and was affiliated with the Delta Gamma Sorority. Beverly married Gordon Nicholes in August 1950, just prior to Gordon's departure to the Korean War. She taught elementary school in Rose Park until his return.
      Beverly was a talented seamstress, making everything from doll clothes to sleeping bags. She was also an amazing cook and a gifted artist. She loved the outdoors and enjoyed boating, hiking, motorcycling and camping. Beverly volunteered for many years for the Friends for Sight, screening hundreds of children to prevent blindness.
      Beverly was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and taught Primary, contributed many beautiful handmade items for the fundraiser bazaars, and helped paint scenery for Road Shows.
      She is survived by her husband Gordon; their two daughters: Susan (Terry Whipple) and Peggy (Philip Halliday); along with eight grandchildren, their spouses and multiple "adopted" grandchildren. Beverly is also survived by her sister, Arlyn Hansen. She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother, Russell Hanks.
      Funeral services will be held at Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park Mortuary at 3401 South Highland Drive on Saturday, July 20th at 2:00 p.m. A viewing will be held for family and friends on Friday, July 19th from 6:00 until 8:00 p.m., and also one hour prior to the funeral services. Interment will be at Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park. We would like to thank the caring ICU staff at St. Mark's Hospital for the vigilant care they gave Beverly the last week of her life. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the charity of your choice or to the Mormon Missionary Fund.
      We will miss her quiet wisdom and strength, and the warmth of her love; but we will carry these traits into our own lives and pass them along to the coming generations.
