Beverly Herman1946-2024Beverly Ann Herman was born on July 15th, 1946, in Deadwood, South Dakota to loving parents Daniel and Margaret “Irene” Vaughan. She passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving family on February 7th, 2024. Born as one of five children, she was a cherished sister to David, Thomas, Terry, and Shirley. Being a sister was something she loved and shared many stories that included time the kids lived in a house they built on the property of their family business located in South Dakota named Vaughan Cabins. In 1962 she met, then married the love of her life, Kenneth Charles Herman in 1964. They would say “when their eyes met at the local Bodega” they fell head over heels in love and began their lifelong love story. They moved several places looking for their forever home that would include North and South Dakota, Montana and finally settled in Portland, Oregon where they remained in the same home, they purchased in 1971. Beverly worked in the restaurant industry her entire career intentionally to allow her the flexibility and time to dedicate to her children, their schooling, volunteering, and cheerleading their various sports. Most notable was the Matterhorn and Steamers restaurants located in Portland. She was an avid book and Oregonian daily reader. She played piano and passed on her love of all genres of music to her children. She always had something playing in the background and shared her love of all things “Toby Keith”. She was a lifetime crime junkie in books, in television, movies and eventually on her very loved iPad. She was a lifelong dedicated sports fanatic of NFL and the NBA and rarely missed a game. She was quite the foodie and reveled her “Happy Hours” with friends and family. Over her lifetime she built many relationships with lifelong friends, customers, neighbors, and her large, very loved extended family. To know her was to love her. One of her proudest things was becoming a grandma, adding great grandmother to her many titles. She is survived by her daughters, her “Honey/Sweetie Pies” Carmen Milashouskas (TJ), Michelle Mantei (Mike) and Kendra Brown (Ron). Her grandchildren and loves of her life, Kenny McKinney, Kameron Corbus and Kelcy Brown. Her great grandbabies Linda and Khalea Mae. Brother Terry Vaughan and sister Shirley McLain. She is predeceased by her parents Daniel and Irene, her brother’s David and Thomas, loving and devoted husband Kenneth, and their son Jeffery Michael. Jeffery and Thomas both passed away in infancy. Beverly made sure every single person in her life knew how very loved and cherished they were to her -- only to be matched by the love she received in return. Always making daily phone calls with her girls. Searching then writing those perfect special cards. She shared in everyone’s celebrations and life events. Her friendships meant the world to her. To say she will be missed is an understatement. She is and will always be loved and missed endlessly. A special moment we would like to share: She began having an extremely sweet conversation that morning, we asked her who was she was talking to so sweetly and smiling and this was her response:“My Ken is calling me home and told me he is waiting for me” she took a breath and with a smile she said, “I told him I am coming”. She passed away peacefully a couple of hours later. A private celebration of life for friends and family will be held on April 13th, 2024. Further details to come
