Beverly graduated from Inkster High School with honors in 1951. She was offered and accepted a scholarship from Michigan State University (formally College) and attended there for two years. She was a true Michigan Spartan---but called herself a Wolverine---who loved everything Michigan but disliked most things Ohio or Buckeye related. 

On Sweetest Day, October 16, 1954, she married Carl Wesley Gibson, Jr. of Dayton, Ohio. This union brought about two loving and devoted children:  Carl Wesley Gibson, III, and Celest Dawn. Yes, this Michigan Wolverine/Ohio Buckeye relationship was somewhat conflicting and unfortunately ended in a divorce. The two remained cordial friends.

In May of 1983, she graduated with honors from Capital University with a BA in Accounting.

On October 1, 1984 Beverly married Arthur Brown, and they remained married until his death August 25, 2001.
