Sadly, we said goodbye to Beverly A. Dietzel on March 3, 2016. Her life was full of sports, crafts and pets. She was born on October 1, 1937. Served in the U.S. Army for 6 years spending 19 months overseas. She was Honorably discharged as Specialist 5 in 1964.
The Poodle Parlour was opened and operated by Bev for a number of years. She decided that ceramics was an up and coming craft that she wanted to be a part of, and opened a wholesale ceramic business called the Biscoteque. As the work was quite strenuous, she opted for a job with the City of Billings Parking Garage. After suffering from a stroke in 2001, she decided to retire after 16 years of loyal service. She was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2009 but as of March 4, 2016, she would have been 6 years cancer free, of which she was very proud. She has been spending her retirement years with loom knitting hats and ear warmers for the Cancer Center, latch hooking rugs, and enjoying her pets.
She was preceded in death by her father, John A Dietzel; her mother, Mabel Dorothy Radenslaben; her brother Clarence, and sister Mardella Maakestad. She is survived by her best friend of many years Sandra Hughes, her sons Dan & Mark, and numerous nieces and nephews.
No services are scheduled at this time.
