Beverly Mussett, 96, of Pueblo, passed away June 30, 2020. Bev was born to George Walter and Anne Elizabeth Christensen on March 5, 1924 in Salt Lake City, Utah. She and her four younger siblings worked on the family dairy farm until she enlisted in the army as a sales clerk in June of 1944. She married James W. Mussett in Martinez, Calif. after meeting while in the army. She was honorably discharged December 1945. Beverly spent her life caring for her family. She and Jim lived in Kansas and Oklahoma for several years, then moved to Nathrop, Colo. After a few years ranching in Nathrop, they moved to Buena Vista. Bev was an expert homemaker. She canned and froze enough food for the family every year. She was always busy sewing, gardening, and raising four daughters. After forty years in Buena Vista, Bev and Jim moved to Avondale to be closer to their daughters in Pueblo. There Bev continued to stay busy canning, sewing, and spoiling her family with her baked goods. She canned from their large garden until the age of 90. She spent the last five years of her life at Primrose Retirement Home. Beverly was preceded in death by her husband of over 70 years, James William Mussett; and her daughter, Judy Fischer of Denver. Bev is survived by daughters, Karen (Steven) Lindquist, Deanna Hardy, and Brenda (Joe) Marino; grandchildren, Shannon, Sonja, Monique, Richard, Kindra, Brian, and Daniel; and many great and great-great grandchildren, as well as many nieces and nephews in Utah and Oklahoma. Thanks to Primrose Retirement Community for the years of love and TLC to Bev and her family. Their kindness and compassion will always be remembered. Also, thanks to Suncrest Hospice staff. Their support of Bev and the family is so appreciated. Thank you also to Dr. Sipalay and staff for the many years of care to both Bev and Jim.

  1. Della thank you so much for taking such good care of mom each week. She always looked so beautiful and she enjoyed your visits and you taking her to and from your shop. I appreciate all you did to make her happy and her stay so much better. She truly enjoyed you. Thanks again Brenda

  2. I just wanted you all to know what a wonderful difference Bev made in my life. She made me laugh on days that I didn’t think I could get through. We travels thousands of miles all over the world running down the halls of Primrose to catch a plane, train or bus to get to our destination. Your mother’s laughter as we ran filled the halls and put smiles on the faces of the staff and residents and mostly mine. We traveled all over Europe ( I had to study up on what some of those countries offered so I could share the sites with her), we went to California, North Carolina, South Dakota, Neveda..stopped to check out the sites in Vegasb but gambling was out of the question, Washington State and even stopped in Washington DC to visit Lincoln Memorial, she was interested to know my grandfather cut the marble for that memorial. I could go on for forever telling you memories we made running the halls, but I do want to you know that Miss Beverly will always be missed and cherished by me. Knowing her made me a much better person. Frank and I are truly sorry for your loss, and pray that God will help you find peace in all your memories.
