Obituary

Beverly Jean Ivers passed away on November 9th at the age of 89.  One of two children born to Alvin Francis Ivers and Dorothy Barrett Ivers, she and her twin sister were born in Merced, CA on November 13, 1931. Jean was a graduate of Our Lady of Mercy School and Merced High, Class of ’49. 

Jean worked for a number of years as a retail clerk in Merced before moving to Fresno, CA in 1968.  In Fresno, Jean worked in retail and as a hospital account clerk for many years before returning to Merced in 1986. 

Jean delighted in spending time with her nieces and nephews.  Trips to Foresta in Yosemite National Park, where she led walks to the creek, hunts for obsidian, and nature craft projects are treasured memories.  Jean was the family historian and took great care to identify and label many older photographs of family and events.

  After her sister, Barbara Joan Ivers Bohn, passed away, Jean helped provide a loving home for her nephew, Joseph. 

Jean enjoyed supporting her alma mater, Our Lady of Mercy School, and Merced County Courthouse Museum as well as numerous other charities.  She enjoyed many activities and did beautiful needlework in her embroidery, cross stitch and quilting projects.  Her talent will forever be remembered in the many detailed and personalized Christmas stockings she crafted for her family.  

Jean is survived by her nephews and nieces, John (Beverlee) Bohn, Julie (Mike) Brittain, Barbara (Arnie) Levey, Jane (Allan) Knutsen, Robert (Brandi) Bohn, Richard (Danielle) Bohn and Joseph Bohn.  Jean also leaves her great nieces and nephews – Jennifer Scroggins, Jeffrey Scroggins, Melvin Levey, Sarah (Mosi) Forde, Erica Campbell, Kate (Matt) Knutsen-Smolar, Sam Bohn, and Dustin, Brady, and Ian Bohn, and grandnieces Hailey Scroggins and Catherine Forde, and grandnephew Calvin Forde.
