Obituary For Beverly Jean Stephenson
DeForest – Beverly Jean Stephenson, age 93, passed away on May 9, 2023 at The Koselig House. She was born on January 2, 1930 in Boaz, Wisconsin to parents Albert and Geneva (Vance) Dalberg.
Beverly and her husband, Charles played Mr. & Mrs. Clause for more than 25 years in the DeForest area. She was known to have a green thumb and could grow anything and enjoyed doing lawn care and yard work. Beverly was not one to sit around and do nothing, working up until her health wouldn’t allow, and retiring a total of 3 times. She loved to cook and always had a place at the table for anyone to join.
Beverly is survived by her 4 children Elaine Hulstein, Carol Midthun, Cheryl (Don) Linde, and Dennis (Dawn) Stephenson; 11 grandchildren; 21 great grandchildren; and 8 great great grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband Charles; sister Lila; brother Lyle; 2 sons-in-laws Tom and Corky; and granddaughter April.

Tiffany Foster went out of her way to fulfill all my requests, talked me through problems I was facing, and tried to make me feel as comfortable as possible when I was a wreck, totally crushed, and I thank her with all of my heart for that.

Skyler was absolutely amazing. She was so caring and helpful through this whole process. She even went above and beyond to meet with us in DeForest and even to make a stop at our home to drop off or pick up anything needed. While it was a small gesture, it was so helpful and greatly appreciated.
