She enjoyed the trips that she took to Michigan and Indianapolis to watch NASCAR races and before her health got bad, the trip to New Zealand and Australia with her husband. In their later years, the couple decided to move to a farm north of Chelsea where Beverly enjoyed sitting in her power wheelchair by the fire.
