Beverly F. (Bartley) Miner, 92, died on August 6, 2019 at Charlene Manor Extended Care Facility in Greenfield.  She had been a lifelong resident of Montague prior to her residence at Charlene Manor.


Bev was born in Montague on July 11, 1927, the daughter of James and Edith Bartley.  She grew up in Montague Center and graduated from Turners Falls High School.  Her husband Peter H. Miner, Jr. predeceased her on November 23, 2006, after 54 years of marriage.  She worked for many years at the Forbes Camera Shop in Greenfield.  Bev loved reading, photography, oil painting, and making puzzles.  She leaves a legacy of paintings for her family to enjoy.  She was an avid sports fan and especially enjoyed watching the Boston Celtics and New England Patriots.  She couldn’t wait to get to the sports page each morning.


Bev leaves a son, Peter J. Miner of Plymouth, and a granddaughter Dr. Samantha Miner of Cambridge.  She also leaves a sister, Joan Englehardt of Montague City.


Sincerest thanks to the staff and volunteers at Hospice of Franklin County for the hours devoted to making Bev’s days better.
