Bev and her then husband Glenn Hescock retired to Baker City, Oregon. She was a prolific traveler – visiting 5 continents and cruising all over the world. She was also an avid quilter, baker and host to family and friends. In her later years, Bev moved to Cottage Grove where she was an active member of the Riverside Community Church of God.
