In Memorium Bev Copeland

There is a party in Heaven that started the morning of July 19, 2015 at 7:46 AM.

The First Lady of the MSA has left us to join her Heavenly Father. Bev Copeland turned 80 just a few days ago and has been sick for the past few months. True to her style, Bev chose not to belabor her illness to her many, many friends. Bev was ready to go home to Jesus, knowing she would be welcomed with His open arms. Bev did so in peace and with dignity.

Knowing that Bev and Bill had made the effort to cultivate their relationship with Jesus makes Bev’s passing easier. Now, we mourn our loss, not hers. We mourn the loss of her wisdom, her history, her compassion and her humor.

Bev had a way of encouraging and supporting you, while never accepting anything but your very best. She pushed you like mom. She has served and loved the MSA for decades. Every year, a new E-board President came along, and Bev took on a new project and a new challenge, all while the goal remained the same: to make and keep MSA respectable.

Bev would want us to smile when we speak of her. She would want us to hold Bill and the rest of her family close in our prayers and in our hearts. People from many walks of life, many geographic locations, and many varied backgrounds looked up to Bev. Her memory will live on in the lives of all of those whom she touched. Her love and wisdom will endure for generations.

“Death is nothing else but going home to God, the bond of love will be unbroken for all eternity.” (Mother Teresa)

Our lives will not be the same without her.

Details of her memorial service will be forthcoming.
