  • Beverly Kenerson Bartlett '58

    Beverly A. Bartlett, 79, of Windham, passed away peacefully with 
    her family by her side Friday May 17, 2019 at Maine Medical Center.
    She was born on January 2, 1940 in Conway, New Hampshire the
    daughter of Percival and Arolin (Jewett) Kenerson. 
    Beverly grew up in Fryeburg, where her parents owned and operated the
    Jockey Cap Store. She spent many hours playing in Molly Ockett's cave
    with her dolls. She loved playing in the family store with their bulldog
    Queenie and sneaking cookies from the cookie jar. She attended
    Fryeburg Academy and upon graduating she went onto Cosmetology
    School. On August 7, 1960 she married Waine Bartlett. Together they
    owned their own business through Agway and eventually that lead to
    purchasing The Village Store in Denmark. They enjoyed operating the
    store with Harlan and Martha Bartlett. They then undertook another
    adventure and purchased the White Pines Motel in Raymond. The best
    was yet to come when they retired and traveled the United States. They
    made long-lasting memories to share and reminisce over the years. 
    Beverly helped to start the first Cub Scout Club of Denmark and was a
    member of the Women’s Extension Group. She enjoyed knitting, cross
    stitch, snowmobile trips to Rangeley, going to the casino and playing
    Bingo. Her most favorite time was spent with family, her grandchildren
    and great-grandchildren. Many hours were spent having tea parties with
    her grandchildren by the poolside, in which they treasure the memories
    of that time with her.
