Obituary For Beverly Blake

Ms. Beverly Blake passed away on December 22, 2021.

Beverly Ann Blake was gifted to the Earth on September 23,1962 to the late Claudia Mae and Willie Gene Blake. Beverly (fondly called Bev) grew up in Boston Massachusetts in the close-knit neighborhood of Bromley Heath, found in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. Beverly attended Grant A.M.E. Church in Boston as a child and was a God-fearing Christian that loved the Lord.

After attending Walpole High School, Beverly held several positions working at City Hall in Boston, Massachusetts, in the Management Information Department. Once Beverly became a mother to her one and only, absolute love and delight of her life Eric Blake, she decided it was time for a change and she moved to Greensboro, North Carolina. There she continued the trend of working for North Carolina A&T, Guilford County Animal Control, and Greensboro Coliseum. Bev’s love for children allowed her to open a daycare, following in her mother’s footsteps and caring for preschoolers. Beverly later joined St. James Baptist Church in 2014. She was active in the Will Green Choir and the Guest Response Team. Beverly loved finding “The Perfect Piece”, be it her wardrobe or her home. It grew into an artistic skill that could be seen in her home and stunning appearance “yes she was very fly”. She showed others how to create comfortable spaces as well.

Beverly can be remembered for her infectious laugh and smile, her insight, her stories, her laid back approach to life and her love for God and family. Beverly will be sorely missed is an understatement.

Beverly is preceded in death by both her parents: Claudia and Willie Gene Blake and her brothers: William Thomas Gladney and Ronald Blake. She leaves to mourn her son: Eric Blake (Fiancé Tedra Green) and grandson: Cade Bruin Blake “Peanut” of Greensboro, NC; brothers: Joseph Taylor of Boston, MA, Warren Blake (De Blake) of Greensboro, NC, Wayne Blake of Boston MA, sister: Dianne Blake-Reuben of Minneapolis, MN, uncle: John Taylor of Boston, MA, aunts: Kathleen Gordon of Greensboro, NC, Betty Jenkins of Boston, MA, special friend/client: Paula Kilpatrick; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives, and great friends. A service honoring her life will be held on January 14, 2022 at St. James Baptist Church located at 536 W. Florida Street, Greensboro NC 27406.

Visitation begins at 12:00 noon and the service will follow at 1:00 pm.

Professional services are entrusted to Perry J. Brown Funeral Home.
