Beverly Joy Daleske, age 77, of Bedford passed away Sunday, January 1, 2017 at the Ringgold County Hospital in Mount Ayr, Iowa. A celebration of life memorial service was held Thursday, January 5, 2017 at 2:30 PM at the Ritchie Funeral Home in Bedford. Memorials may be directed towards the family.

Beverly Joy (Harsh) Daleske was born October 28, 1939 in Newton, Iowa, the daughter of Carl Harsh and Lora (Wright) Harsh. Beverly grew up in Newton, Iowa with her brother and four sisters. Beverly married William F. Daleske Jr. on August 2, 1969 in Grant City, Missouri. 

Beverly always enjoyed helping people. This was evident by her choice of employment through the years including being a head start teacher in Fraser, Iowa and working as a state social worker for the state of New Mexico, when she and Bill moved there. 

Beverly's greatest joy in life was being a mother to her six sons. It takes a special woman to raise that many boys! She always put her boys before herself and she always made sure they knew they were loved. Beverly also enjoyed being a grandmother to her twelve grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. Her children and grandchildren have many stories and special memories to remember her by. 

Left to cherish Beverly’s memory is her husband William Daleske aka "Bill on the Hill" of Bedford; hers sons Richard Wallace and wife Karen of Bedford, Ted Wallace and wife Shari of Oklahoma, Martin Wallace and wife Teresa of Hagerman New Mexico, William Daleske and wife Bernadette of Bedford and Robert Daleske and wife Lynn of Bedford; twelve grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; Sisters Kay, Mary Cheryl and Carlie; brothers in-law and numerous nieces, nephews and friends. 

Preceding Beverly in death are her parents Carl and Lora Harsh; brother Dick Harsh; son Rory Wallace and special friends Donna Eighmy and Charlotte Akers.

May Beverly be at peace in God's loving care.
