Beverly Louise Alexander

Died: Friday, August 25, 2006
Age: 82
Beverly Louise Alexander set sail to her eternal home peacefully last Friday at her residence in Riverhead, the same place she grew up in.

Mrs. Alexander was born in Brooklyn on September 22, 1923 to Reginald H. and Alice Golding Tuthill. She moved to Riverhead in 1924 when her father came to establish a funeral service there, the Reginald H. Tuthill Funeral Home. She graduated from Riverhead High School and attended St. Laurence University.

Following W.W. II, she was married to her high school sweetheart, Frederick J. Alexander on August 13, 1945. Mrs. Alexander was a housewife and mother, caring for five demanding men and the assorted male dogs, and worked for many years with the Suffolk County Lawyers Service in Riverhead.

When life allowed, she and Fred enjoyed boating on the waters of eastern Long Island and southern New England. She enjoyed playing bridge, practicing yoga, swimming, bicycling and taking care of her family. She was always ready for a trip if the opportunity arose. She was a life long active member of the Riverhead United Methodist Church as a parishioner, Sunday school teacher, Trustee and member of many committees and groups.

Predeceased by her husband Fred in 1992, Mrs. Alexander is survived by her sons, Fred and his wife Irene, Eric and his wife Mary Ann, Dean and his wife Linda and Scott and his wife Joan. She was a cherished Gram and Bomba, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother to all.

The family received friends on Sunday and Monday at the Reginald H. Tuthill Funeral Home in Riverhead. A Going Home Service was held yesterday at the United Methodist Church, with the Rev. Christopher Doyle, Pastor, leading. Interment followed at the Riverhead Cemetery. Memorial contributions can be made to the endowment fund of the Riverhead United Methodist Church, 204 E. Main St., Riverhead, NY 11902.
