Beverly M. Cantrell, 88, of Arlington, went to be with the Lord on June 6. She passed away peacefully at home with her family after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease.
She was greatly loved by her adoring husband Paul Cantrell (deceased) and was a loving mother who is survived by her five children: Helen and Scott McCobb of Nashua, New Hampshire, Paul and Debbie Cantrell of Hudson, Kathleen Kovar of West Yarmouth, Joyce and Dick Young of Nashua, New Hampshire, and Kimberly and Chip Coveney of Hopkinton. She also leaves grandchildren Scott McCobb, Brian McCobb, Stephany Kovar, Garrett Cantrell, Megan Cantrell, Ashley Young, Justin Cantrell, Ben Young, Brittany Coveney, Christopher Coveney and Spencer Coveney along with 10 great-grandchildren.
Beverly and Paul moved to Nashua, New Hampshire, from Arlington upon retirement. They enjoyed their retirement to the fullest by traveling the world and going on cruises. Beverly moved to the Cape in 2015. That her priority throughout life was her family is clearly seen in the beautiful family she has left behind.
A celebration of life was held at Skippy’s Pier 1 in South Yarmouth on June 13.
