BEVERLY "BEV" A. SIEBERT, age 71, of Yorkville, formerly of Elburn, passed away Monday, July 19, 2010 at Rush-Copley Medical Center in Aurora, IL. BORN: Beverly was born July 7, 1939 in Mattoon, IL, the daughter of Paul and Lois (Grant) Jones. EARLY YEARS:Bev grew up in Mattoon but moved to the Elburn area in 1949 and attended local schools. MARRIAGE: On June 30, 1956, Beverly married her high school sweetheart David Siebert. They made their home in California for a time but soon returned to Illinois, settling in the Elburn-Kaneville area where they would share most of the next forty-eight years together. In the early nineties, David and "Bev" moved to Yorkville in 1996. She continued to make her home there following David’s passing in 2004. LIFE NOTES: Though Bev worked at various jobs over the years, she made it her job to raise her children and care for David. There wasn’t anything she wouldn’t do for her children, even pulling them in a wagon for over eight miles to a friend’s home who had a swimming pool. She truly made her house a "home", making not only delicious meals but everlasting memories. When the holidays came around, Bev is "unofficially" credited with inventing Chex Mix, a mixture of seasoned cereal now sold in bulk, but was once uniquely her own. She was firm but fair with her children, but it when grandchildren came along, Bev found her calling, taking them shopping, teaching them how to bake and she attended nearly all the various school events. Her family was her life and she wouldn’t have had it any other way. SURVIVORS: She is survived by three children:Paula Siebert of Yorkville, IL, Terry (Sarah) Siebert of Manatee County, FL, Trent (Dawn) Siebert of Sugar Grove, IL;Four grandchildren:Krista (Jay) Lutz and their son Jayden, of Manatee County, FL and Jake Siebert of Oswego, IL, Kylie and Tyler Siebert of Sugar Grove, IL;One sister, Claudette Liehr of Oswego, IL;Many nieces, nephews and a family of friends.
