Beverly Maher said, “I have used my teaching degree all of my adult life, even though I only taught full-time for one year.” Beverly graduated from BYU in elementary education with a minor in child development and family relations and taught second grade in Bountiful, Utah. She married Francis Maher Jr., and the couple made their home in California, where Francis worked for NASA.
Beverly stayed busy with their six children, along with church and school activities. After retirement in 1994 she and her husband served in the Logan Temple until 1996, when they were called on a mission to Madrid, Spain. Following her husband’s death, Beverly served a temple mission in Guayaquil, Ecuador. Today she continues her service in the Logan Temple.
