Beverly Joyce Morse

June 11, 1943 — January 27, 2024

Beverly Joyce Morse was born on June 11, 1943, in Lawrence, Massachusetts to William and Mildred Turner. Beverly was raised in Andover and was a graduate of Punchard High School. She was very active in the International Order of Rainbow for Girls and later in the Order of the Eastern Star. Beverly passed away on January 27, 2024, in Greenville, South Carolina.

The daughter of a contractor, Beverly loved designing houses and spaces. She displayed immense talent and a keen eye for aesthetics both inside and outside of buildings. With this passion, and through her dedication and commitment to excellence, she rose to General Manager of Saxon Corporation. Under her leadership, Saxon Corporation became a leading company in the kitchen manufacturing industry. Later while working at Creative Cabinets on Hilton Head Island, she twice won awards for her designs.

While Beverly achieved success professionally, it was her character and devotion to her family that truly set her apart. She was selfless and consistently put others' needs and wants before her own. Her love for her family was immeasurable, and she always prioritized their well-being above everything else. She dedicated herself to her children and grandchildren showing unwavering support and guidance.

Beverly believed deeply in the power of education which led to her attending Boston University. There she honed her design skills and developed a strong foundation for her career. Throughout her life, she continued to nurture her thirst for knowledge through reading, attending conferences, and talking with colleagues, family, and friends.

Described as reserved and thoughtful by those who knew her best, Beverly possessed a quiet strength that inspired those around her. Her calm demeanor masked an incredible depth of wisdom and insight that made people seek her advice and guidance. She had an uncanny ability to bring comfort to those in need with just a few well-chosen words or a gentle touch.

Beyond the realm of work and family, Beverly embraced various hobbies and interests that brought joy to her life. Home designing allowed her creative spirit to flourish, and she transformed spaces into havens of beauty and tranquility. Gardening was another passion that provided solace and allowed her to connect with nature. She loved traveling, visiting foreign lands as well as exploring most of the United States. Beverly loved music of many genres and attended thousands of live performances. Occasionally, she could be found sitting at the piano making her music.

Beverly's legacy lives on through her surviving family and friends, who mourn the loss of an extraordinary woman. She is survived by her loving husband of 60 years, David J. Morse, with whom she built a lifetime of cherished memories. Her daughter, Cheryl Noel, and son, David Morse, along with their spouses Ronald and Lan respectively, will forever carry her love in their hearts.

She was equally adored by her grandchildren: Nathan Noel (predeceased), Gwendolyn Morse, Keilah Noel, Rachel Morse, and Evan Noel. Beverly loved talking with, attending special events and just being together with her grandchildren. Though they lived far from each other, she would speak to each one every week, usually via FaceTime. Their lives have been forever touched by the countless lessons she imparted and the beautiful memories they shared.

Also mourning her loss is her brother William Turner and his wife Donna. The bond between siblings is unique and Beverly held many fond memories of their years growing up, especially racing skiffs at Marblehead.

Today we gather not only to mourn but also to celebrate Beverly Joyce Morse—an award-winning designer, an inspiring leader, a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. Hers was a life well-lived!

As we bid farewell to Beverly, may we remember the joy she brought into our lives. May her memory continue to be a guiding light, illuminating our path and reminding us to cherish every moment with our loved ones. Rest peacefully, Beverly, knowing that your legacy lives on in the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to know you.

In lieu of flowers please remember Beverly’s thoughtfulness toward others.
