Beverly Jean (née Vernon) Sptiznogle (formerly Galloway), 93, of Logansport passed away peacefully Monday, March13, 2023. Born, January 2, 1930, in Logansport, she was the second of three children of the late William L. and Carrie N. (née Miller) Vernon. Beverly was a 1948 graduate of Logansport High School and the former wife of William Galloway, Jr. (deceased 1982) and of Fred Spitznogle.
Until recently (August 2022), Beverly continued to work each day at her beloved Terra Realty, Inc. which she founded in Logansport some 50 years ago. Beverly was a fiercely independent, self-reliant soul, an accomplished businesswoman—a leader within her field, as well as an active community member who practiced helping others and truly believed “There is more happiness in giving than in receiving [Acts 20:35].” She took pride in her community and participated in many community projects as an organizer and leader and was a frequent benefactor to worthy causes dear to her heart.
Beverly was a devoted mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend to those she leaves behind and who will profoundly miss her, including: sons, Devin L. (Sharon) Galloway, Solsberry, and Rick D. (Vicki) Galloway, Logansport; grandson, Konner W. Galloway and great-grandson, Emmit Galloway, Logansport; step-great- grandson, Zion W. Langan, Solsberry; sister, Judith A. Zook, Monticello; sister-in-law, Jo Ellen (Galloway) Yerkes and family, Zionsville; nephew, Thomas L. (Patty) Vernon and family, Lima OH; niece, Carrie Kendall and family, Monticello; nephew, Bryan Burrough, Lafayette; and nephew, Todd Burrough and family, Carmel; and niece-in-laws, Roberta Vernon and family, Lima OH and Elizabeth Perrone Schwanke and family, Logansport.
Beverly was preceded in death by her son, Gary Michael (Mike) Galloway (2017); stepson, William R. (Dick) Galloway (2018); brother, William “Bill” Vernon (2009); and nephews, Frederick R. Vernon (2018) and William L. (Billy Lee) Vernon, Jr. (1978). The family is grateful to the nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals at Angels of Mercy Homecare, Logansport Memorial Hospital and Miller’s Merry Manor who provided loving care to Beverly during the past year and final weeks of her life.
No formal funeral arrangements are planned. Her cremains will be interred at Mount Hope Cemetery in Logansport. The family will convene a ‘Celebration of Life’ gathering forfriends and family at a future date.
