Beverly Jean McInelly Despain8/15/1935 ~ 1/27/2012Beverly Despain, beloved wife, sister, mother, grandmother, and friend, passed away Friday, January 27, 2012 surrounded by her family at a hospital in Riverton, Utah. Born in Escalante, Utah, to Frank B. and Mearl McInelly, Beverly was the eldest sister of Frankie and Steven McInelly. Beverly graduated from Granite High School and attended Brigham Young University; it was there she polished her love of singing by touring in a vocal group with her life-long friends. She left BYU to be a secretary for General Motors, and later became a stewardess at United Airlines; however, her greatest calling and achievement was as a wife and mother to a very active and fun family. Beverly was sealed to Bruce E. Despain in the Salt Lake City temple on November 19, 1959. She had three children, nine grandchildren, and two great-grand children, whom she loved dearly. She served as Stake Relief Society president in the Willow Creek Utah stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She is remembered there fondly for her superior cooking and organizing skills. Beverly loved singing and had a beautiful voice. She was privileged to sing in many wonderful choirs, including the dedicatory choir for the Jordan River Temple. She loved sharing stories about her singing performances, her childhood memories, her many adventures as a stewardess, and all of her children and grandchildren. Although she will be dearly missed, our family is happy to know she is in a better place where she will walk, talk, and sing with ease once again. She is welcomed in heaven by her grandparents, parents, and granddaughter. In respect of her wishes, funeral services will not be held. A graveside memorial will be held instead at Mountain View Memorial Estates on Wednesday, February 1, at 2:00pm, and will be open to all whom are wishing to pay their respects.
