Obituary

Beverly Jean Smith, age 70, was called HOME peacefully in her sleep on May 25, 2020. She was born June 19, 1949, in Rochester, New York.  She built and nurtured a tight knit family with four devoted children, Lisa Chassie, Richard Sage, John Sage, and Michael Sage, 10 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.

Her life was a living example of God’s love for his children.   Ephesians 4:32 ” “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.”  That was Beverly. 

Beverly loved to love on her family and friends. One of her greatest joys was hosting family gatherings, especially Thanksgiving and Christmas. Everyone packed into her condo, sharing wonderful food and friendship. Her hands were rarely still, cooking pasta for the grandkids and playing the slots at Pala Casino. She was many times a lucky winner at slots and her giving heart shared those winnings with her grateful grandkids.  They knew she harbored a tender spot for each and every one of them.  Her family will forever cherish the giving, caring, loving matriarch she was.

For the past 30 years Beverly worked at RJS Insurance with her sons, Richard and John, as well as her daughter, Lisa.  It was her fierce commitment to keeping the family close that kept her going to work every day without fail.  She loved sharing her life with them and rarely missed a day of work.

She lived life to the fullest with God and family as her first priority. 

Beverly will be interred next to her beloved sister, Diana Lippa.  She is survived by her brother-in-law, David Lippa and his wife, Alida; her daughter Lisa Chassie and her husband, Mark; son John Sage and his wife Nancy; son Michael Sage; and son Richard Sage and his wife, Jennifer.  The grandchildren:  Brandon, Chris, Blake, Jonathan, Victoria, Andrew, Grant, Adam, Bella, and Sofia. Eliana and Luca are her precious great-grandchildren.
