Beverly Joyce Wagner
Beverly Joyce Wagner, 88, a resident of Cape Coral, FL for the past 25 years, formerly of Clayton, CA, passed away at home on Sunday, April 26, 2020. She was born April 11, 1932 in East Wilton, ME to Carroll and Vivian Macomber, now deceased.
Beverly was of the Catholic faith. She attended St. Katharine Drexel Catholic Church and St. Andrew Catholic Church, both in Cape Coral. She graduated from Nursing School as a Registered Nurse in 1953 and spent over 50 years working in health care. Because her husband was in the Air Force, they moved frequently and as result she worked in hospitals from Cape Cod, Massachusetts to Cape Coral, Florida. She took great pride in her nursing skills and her expansive career as a nurse. She had a brilliant mind and a sharp wit and was fondly known for her feisty personality and refined art of sarcasm. Beverly would challenge her family to a game of Chinese Checkers knowing that she would always win.
She is survived by her beloved husband of 62 years, Lt. Colonel (ret.) Eugene Paul Wagner of Cape Coral; five loving children, Debra Wagner of Rineyville, KY, Robert Henry Wagner (Christine) of Cape Coral, John Paul Wagner (Len) of Orlando, FL, Susan Wagner of Monterey, CA, and Jennifer Wagner of Cape Coral; grandson, Jared Purcell (Brittany) of Colorado Springs, CO with a great granddaughter Layla Purcell; another grandchild, Nikki Carter, as well as another great grandchild, Kylie Carter.
Beverly was an amazing strong woman who did things her way all the way to the final moments of her life. We know she is up in heaven dancing with all her family who have passed and her dogs at the Rainbow Bridge.
No formal services are planned at this time. A celebration of Life will be held at a later time.
