Beverly Jane Brady (70) of Mahwah, NJ, has entered eternal rest on January 26th.
It is with extreme sadness that we announce the passing of Beverly Jane Brady (Twink). She passed away of kidney and heart failure in the arms of her sister at Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, NJ after three years of being on dialysis. She battled her declining health with grace, dignity, prayers and always a smile.
Twink was born in Brooklyn, NY. She married musician Timmy Harrison (Dulaine) at 18, moved to Texas and worked for a prominent physician. They moved to CA where she worked several years in Beverly Hills for Dr. Bernard Salick. Divorced, changed careers and worked as an assistant for TV producer Ken Kragen. She moved back to NY to be with family and begin a new life. She started work as a temp at Cranston Print Works Co. Met and married her beloved Thomas John, moved to Port Washington and left Cranston as a Vice President of the company. Eventually moved to NJ where she worked at Kenneth Cole Productions as she cared for her sick husband until he passed of early onset Alzheimer’s. She then worked and became friends with Patrick and Kara at Arid Waterproofing and retired due to poor health.
Bev was a kind, compassionate, beautiful woman who brightened every room she entered with her twinkling eyes, warm laugh and perfect pitch voice. She loved music and dancing and these last few years especially enjoyed seeing the band Chicago when in the area and listening to her favorite local group, The Mighty Spectrum Band.
She had many friends and neighbors all over the country whom she loved and she was loved dearly in return.
