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.
