Beverly was born on March 27, 1934 in Ottawa to Richard and Blanche (Nelson) Lowery. She married Harry W. Fisher on January 9, 1954 at Trinity Lutheran Church. He passed away on May 7, 2007. She had piano lessons starting at the age of four from Severne Yensco and later from Sister Benita, who was a big influence on Bev’s life. She played piano for Sunday School at Trinity Lutheran Church when it was on Guthrie Street, and also sang in the choir under the direction of Ray McKeever. Bev sang in the OTHS Glee Club and Octet under the direction of John L. Hoff, and took voice lessons from Ida Chamberlin. She was an organist at Faith Lutheran Church in Oak Lawn, IL, Faith Lutheran Church in Harrison, AR, and occasional organist and pianist at Zion Lutheran Church in Ottawa.

She had the privilege of accompanying Rob Thomason on a CD of Hymns “For God So Loved.” Bev sang in Gospel groups in Harrison, AR, over the years. In addition to her music career, she worked full time in accounting until she retired. Then she worked part time at the Boone County Adult Day Center and received her certificate as a Dementia Care Specialist from the Arkansas Department of Human Services. She also volunteered with music there.

She was a member of Zion Lutheran Church, the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League in Oak Lawn, Harrison, and Ottawa, and was a lifetime and charter member of the Ozark Heartland Arts and Crafts in Harrison.

She always thanked God for parents who provided the lessons in music, that was such a big part of her life. She volunteered with music at the Ottawa Day Center.
