Beverly Ardis (Rowe) Flinn was born on June 13, 1929 in Joice, Iowa, the daughter of Albert and Clara (Daley) Rowe. She grew up in Joice and then attended Kiester High School, where she graduated in 1947. Beverly was united in marriage to Richard Flinn in Kiester. She was a member of Salem Lutheran Church and the V.F.W. Auxiliary. Beverly enjoyed quilting, bingo, and going out to eat. She especially loved playing “31” for quarters with her nephews and maybe having a beer or two.
Beverly is survived by sisters-in-law, Gladys Rowe of Albert Lea and Phyllis Rowe of Prior Lake; many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, and cousins; and many, many friends.
Beverly was preceded in death by her husband, Richard; brothers, Floyd Rowe, Harold Rowe, and Duane Rowe; and sisters, Grace Trytten, Shirley Johnson, Alice Kastner, and Mavis McNeal.
