Beverly J. Owen, 91, of Conneaut passed away October 12, 2018 at the Ashtabula County Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. Beverly was born in Conneaut on March 18, 1927 to Ward E. Hill and Dorothy F. (Lyon) Hill. She graduated from Conneaut High School in 1945 and was employed as a bookkeeper in local businesses until her marriage on November 19, 1955 to Warren A.

She is survived by her sister, Grayce A. Hill (Conneaut OH); her five daughters: Heather A. (Thomas Kokenge) Owen, Shorewood WI; Alice J. (Bruce Clough) Owen-Clough, Xenia OH; Dorothy K.

Beverly was a lifelong member of the United Methodist Church, a member of Eastern Star, the Conneaut Community Center, the USS Cabot Association, and the Welsh National Gymanfa Ganu Association.

She was a constant source of love, advice, and support to her family as well as a second mother to all who knew her. Beverly enjoyed knitting, crocheting, taking pictures, gardening, preserving fresh food for her family, and being a friend to her neighbors.
