Beverly Jo Kopf
Beverly Jo (Greb) Kopf was born November 24, 1935 to Ezra and Clara (Geis) Greb on the family farm south of Isabella, Oklahoma. She departed this life on June 22, 2020 at the age of 84 years at her home north of Southard, Oklahoma with her family at her side.
Beverly married Bobbie Joe Kopf of Southard, Oklahoma on July 5, 1952 at the Presbyterian Church in Enid, Oklahoma after he returned home from his tour of duty in the Korean War. They made their home in Southard where they had 4 children born to this union: Michael, Gayla, Jana and Randall. After 36 years of marriage, Bobbie Joe passed away from cancer at the age of 57 years old. After his death she went back to school receiving her GED. She then pursued her education at Frances Tuttle in Oklahoma City where she received her Registered Dietary License for her job as head dietician for Schallmo and Okeene Municipal Hospital. She retired at the age of 72 from this job in 2007 to pursue the much deserved time with her family. She also got to fix up her flower beds. She loved playing in the soil, watching her flowers bloom, and seeing the hummingbirds at her feeders. She was a fantastic cook and she loved sharing her recipes with her children, but even more with her grandchildren.
She also was so blessed because she got to enjoy watching and being a part of 5 generations of her family.
