Beverly Ann Rhoades

Beverly Ann Rhoades (nee Austin) passed peacefully into eternity on January 19, 2024, at the age of 81, following a prolonged illness and valiant fight. Born in Quincy, MA, Beverly was the daughter of the late Nathaniel S. Austin and Georgia (Akins) Austin of North Weymouth. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, William Rhoades of Henniker, NH, a veteran of the US Army who served his country with honor.

Beverly is survived by her son, Russell McAndrews, and his wife, Donna of Weymouth; her step- son’s Allan Rhoades, and his wife, Prachee, of Salisbury, NC and Andrew Rhoades and his wife, Julie of Saint Augustine, FL. She is also survived by her daughter-in-law, Debra Tingus of North Weymouth; her brother-in-law Valentine Torres and his wife, Rita Torres of Plymouth; her sister, Natalie Austin, and her partner, Brian Kain of Rockland. She is predeceased by her son, David M. McAndrews, her sister, Janice Carolyn Austin, and her nephew, Allan Henry Coutu. She was the beloved Grandmother of Ryan McAndrews, Michael McAndrews, Capitan Daniel Torres, James Torres, Sonya Rhoades, Deven Rhoades, Hailey Rhoades, Cameron Rhoades, Nathan Rhoades, Laurens Rhoades, Jonathan Marks, and Ashley Marks. She was a cherished Aunt to Carolyn “Missy” O’Toole, Jeffrey Austin, and Jessica Torres, as well as a Great Aunt to 10. Beverly grew up on Fort Point Rd in North Weymouth, MA, and raised her two sons in Weymouth. Reconnecting with her high school sweetheart after 35 years, Beverly and Bill built a life together in Henniker, NH, on Keiser Lake, where they enjoyed entertaining friends and family.  Beverly returned to Weymouth after Bill’s passing. Beverly often spoke of her Henniker friends and remembered them fondly.

Beverly was a talented seamstress and quilter who enjoyed making beautiful quilts for her loved ones.  During the pandemic, Bev made hundreds of masks for family, friends, and even some local businesses that she frequented. Beverly worked as a Cook at Easter’s Country Kitchen for many years, as well as Head Cook at Camp Burgess on Cape Cod for countless Summers. Some of her most cherished moments were spent cooking with her father, Nat, at Camp Burgess and teaching her nieces and nephews to cook.

 Her greatest joy was caring for her grandchildren and spending time with her nieces and nephews, passing on her love of cooking, sewing, and reading. Beverly was a lifelong supporter of Troop 19 out of Weymouth, where her son Russell and her grandson Ryan both earned their Eagle Scout Awards. Bev was the recipient of the Troop 19 Bronze Arrowhead Award, recognizing adults who have given exceptional support, above and beyond any reasonable expectation, in 1981. Beverly will be remembered by many as a smart and thoughtful nurturer who had a great sense of humor and was always there for her loved ones to lend a hand or just listen. She was a wonderful friend to many and we thank you for your love and friendship on her behalf.
