Beverly C. Saxton, 92, of Ludington, passed away and met her Savior face-to-face on Saturday, February 13, 2021, at Harbor Hospice Poppen Residence in Muskegon.  She was born May 12, 1928, in Riverton Township, the daughter of Victor and Mary (Matson) Lundberg.

Beverly graduated from Scottville High School (now Mason County Central) in 1946 and married William “Bill” J Saxton on June 1, 1947. 

Beverly was a faithful member of St. Paul United Methodist Church, and active member of the South Riverton Helping Hands Society.  Beverly and Bill were some of the founding members of the 29er’s, building and remodeling homes, churches, housing etc. for those in need in Guatemala, Fiji, Tonga, Hawaii, and across the United States.

In 1970, Beverly and her husband, William, started Heritage Hills Mobile Home Park, which she ran for several years.  In her spare time, Beverly enjoyed gardening, racquetball, volleyball, sewing, square dancing, watching the Detroit Tigers, and playing cards, especially Shanghai and Mahjong.  Most of all, Beverly loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and making them her delicious chicken and noodles.

Beverly is survived by her sons, Colin (Leann) Saxton of Pentwater, Randy (Ann) Saxton of Scottville, and Brad (Jyl Miller) Saxton of Ludington; 14 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
