Beverly J Briggs

May 22, 1936 ~ April 9, 2020 (age 83)


Beverly J. Briggs, 83, of Weedsport, passed away April 9, 2020 at The Commons on St. Anthony. Born in Liberty, NY on May 22, 1936, Beverly was raised by her late Grandparents, Gaius and Addie Hogoboom and was the daughter of the late Edward Burns and Helen Hogoboom Burns.


Beverly is survived by her daughter, Deborah (Philip) Perkins, her son Edward Briggs, son-in-law Thomas Ryan, her grandchildren, Neil (Meghan) Ryan, of Pennsylvania, Brent (Kristin) Ryan of South Carolina, Nicole (Rory) Heath of Weedsport, Andrew (Kimberly) Perkins of Schenectady, Michelle (Don) Chamberlain of Ohio, Kimberly (Dustin) Taylor of Ohio, and Jamie Briggs of Weedsport. She also leaves behind 9 great-grandchildren, DJ, Etta and Teagan Ryan, Kara Donnelly, Gavin and Cedrik Heath, Aiden and Kadance Taylor, James Briggs, Jr., and coming soon, Harper and Paisley Perkins and Baby Taylor. Last, but not least, one great-great grandson, Sullivan Briggs Linwood.


Beverly was a passionate gardener and kept one of the most beautiful flower gardens in the Village of Weedsport for many years. She loved to watch the birds on the feeders from her kitchen window and would often commentate for the squirrels as they tried to maneuver whatever contraption she had put in place to deter them from stealing the birdseed. She also loved her Pomeranians and loved many throughout her lifetime.


Along with her grandparents, Beverly was predeceased by her beloved husband of 52 years, Gerald Briggs in 2005, her daughter Loretta (Thomas) Ryan in 2014, and Terry Chick in 2015.
