Beverly Ann Carpenter
She was born in St. Helens on January 26, 1945, and was a lifelong resident. Her parents were Irene Loretta and Carl Edison Putman.
Bev was employed at Boise Cascade and Midway Electric and did volunteer work for Meals on Wheels and the St. Helens Little League.
Beverly loved snow and Christmas and cooking. Her Christmas trees were beautifully decorated and you could often find her "doing the snow dance." In her spare time, she loved working the daily crossword puzzle.
She is survived by her husband, Charles D. Carpenter; son, Michael Carpenter; and three grandsons, Jacob, Eli and Jackson Carpenter; and her brother, Douglas (Marilyn) Putman of Clatskanie. Also surviving are brother-in-laws, Jim (Martina), Steve (Charlotte), Trish and Bob Delozier, Joe (Pam), Jeff (Debbie) and David (Nancy) Carpenter; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents Carl and Irene Putman; and son, Craig Carpenter.
At her request, there will be no service.
Friends so wishing may make memorial contributions to Doernbecher Foundation, P.O. Box 29017, Portland, OR 97219 in her name or a charity of their choice.
