The Beverley Anne Klein Memorial Scholarship

The Beverley Anne (B.A.) Klein Memorial Scholarship was established in 2021 to celebrate the life and legacy of B.A. Klein, a daughter, wife, mother, and friend to many, who dedicated her life to illuminating the lives of others.

B.A. was born on May 19, 1955 and was a graduate of Prince Edward Academy and University of Richmond. She worked in photography, marketing, media relations, and most recently as the manager of Patteson Farm. BA’s real accomplishments came in the form of how she lived her life. Her life was not free of struggle or heartache. From a young age she faced adversity, and even then, she did not let her wide smile or bright eyes be diminished. She carried on, perhaps becoming more loving and warm with each hurdle. She had a way of pouring love into everything she did. She was an avid gardener, and loved to have her bare feet in the dirt. She appreciated this earth and all its beauty, both on her farm, and afar. A stray animal was no longer stray after meeting Beverley Anne. She stopped in awe at the sight of a whimsical cloud, gnarled tree, simple blossoming flower, and every sunset. What set Beverley Anne apart from most, is that love was truly a verb for her. It was seen in the way she cooked, tended the farm animals, her tight hugs and warm greetings, an invitation to come, to stay longer, and how she knew when to laugh and when to ask you how you really are. B.A. loved her family intensely and unconditionally. They were her proudest accomplishment and reason for being. However, this did not prevent her from loving countless others as if they were her own. The Thanksgiving table always had extra seats, the guest beds were always made, and the fridge always full. She had away of bringing people together, and even among the largest of crowds she still saw each individual. She saw the good in everyone, and made them see it too. B.A. took the time to encourage the weary and lift those in darkness. B.A. passed away peacefully on May 26, 2020 at the age of 65 after a long and hard-fought battle with breast cancer, but even now, she continues to radiate hope and joy, and inspire courage in us all.
