Born to Agnes Brandt and George Weber in Hopkinton, Iowa, on Aug. 14, 1931, she grew up surrounded by a family of 14. She later moved to Minnesota to obtain a degree as a medical technician at the College of Saint Benedict. In 1964 she married Dr. James Mathies and moved to Denver where she helped raise their two children, Jim and Laura, while working for Mercy Medical Center.
Retiring in northern Florida after her husband's death in 1990, Beverly is treasured for her generous contributions to a number of organizations in the area, including the Seagrove Garden Club, the Church of the Resurrection and the Coastal Branch Library.

William E. Patton Sr.
William E. "Bill" Patton Sr. passed away Sunday, Aug. 19, 2001, at the age of 67.
Bill was born on Feb. 2, 1934, in Lacy Chapel, Ala. There he met and married Sybil Smith on March 17, 1956. Bill, Sibyl and their three children headed for Huntington Beach, Calif., in 1968 in a Volkswagen bug with all they owned in search of a new life together. In his new beginning he worked his way up the ladder at Northrop Aircraft from mechanic to design engineer. He had accomplished one of his many dreams in this lifetime.
Mr. Patton retired from Northrop in February 1985 and began another dream by moving to Destin, Fla. Once there, he landed at the Grand Mariner, again with Sybil at his side. There he also met many new and dear friends and one special angel, Joann White (let the party begin). His final dream was a project with the famous environmental artist, Wyland. He wanted to take part in a whaling wall on the sides of the marine building just as you enter Destin. Time and other factors however did not allow Mr. Patton to achieve this dream with Wyland, but we know the whaling wall will still be completed at another nearby location.
Mr. Patton will be saving a place for his wife, Sybil Patton; son, Ed Patton; daughters, Mellisa Powell and husband Carl, Kathy Cantrell and husband Lance; grandchildren, Trey, Jessica, Alicia, Jason, Jonathan and Destin; great-grandchildren, Adrianna and Elijia Powell; and his beloved pet, Sonja.
