Beverly Jean Haglund

May 5, 1931 — February 1, 2024

Beverly Jean Haglund, a cherished matriarch and beacon of wisdom, passed away peacefully on February 1, 2024, in Greenwood, South Carolina. Born on May 5, 1931, in Waukegan, Illinois, Beverly lived a rich and spirited life marked by her intelligence, wisdom, and a love for the simple pleasures in life.

Beverly's journey began as a bright-eyed girl in Waukegan, where she grew up surrounded by the warmth of her community and the joys of childhood. She attended local schools where she formed lifelong friendships and laid the foundation for her future. Her formative years were filled with learning and laughter, setting the stage for the remarkable woman she would become.

As she ventured into the world, Beverly's strong work ethic and sharp mind led her to a fulfilling career in construction. She broke ground not only on physical structures but also on the expectations of her time, working as a general contractor. Her colleagues respected her for her keen intellect and her ability to solve complex problems with grace and determination.

The family was the cornerstone of Beverly's world. Although she faced the profound loss of her beloved son, Albert Jensen, and daughter, Pamela Jensen-Braden, she found solace and joy in the lives of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her grandson, Shawn Rose; granddaughter, Shennen (David Owens) Rose; great-grandchildren, Kaya (Stacy) Rose, Austyn Rose, Samantha (Jordan) Smith, and
Justin (Arisa) Ouzts; and great-great-grandchildren, Ethan Smith and Lilly Ouzts, were the lights of her life. Beverly's legacy will live on through the cherished memories and the enduring love she shared with each of them.

An avid lover of crossword puzzles, Beverly's sharp mind was matched only by her love for her feline companions. Her cats brought her great comfort and companionship, and she was known to be a whiz at couponing, always finding the best deals and sharing them with her loved ones.

Beverly's life was a testament to the power of resilience and the human spirit. Her intelligence and wisdom were not confined to her professional life; they were woven into the fabric of her being and were evident in her approach to life's challenges. Friends and family often sought her counsel, and she guided with a blend of realism and optimism that was uniquely hers.

Her spirit was indomitable, and her presence was a source of stability and inspiration for those fortunate enough to know her. Beverly's laughter was infectious, her advice was sought after, and her ability to see the good in every situation was a rare gift that she generously shared with everyone around her.

Beverly Jean Haglund's story is one of a life well-lived and a legacy of strength, love, and wisdom that will continue to guide and uplift her family and all who knew her. She leaves behind a tapestry of memories that will be cherished and celebrated for generations to come.

As we bid farewell to Beverly, we do so with gratitude for the time we had with her and the lessons she imparted. Her life was a beacon that shone brightly, guiding us through our darkest times and reminding us of the beauty in the everyday. She will be deeply missed, but her spirit will remain with us always, a guiding star in the firmament of our lives.
