Obituary for Beverly A. Miner (Dauphinais)

Beverly A.  Miner (Dauphinais)
GRAFTON: Beverly A. (Dauphinais) Miner, 78, passed away peacefully on Monday February 20th after spending her final days with family and friends. Her extended family is grateful for the tenderness and compassion provided by Rose Monahan Hospice, part of the VNA Care network. She was predeceased by her husband, Edward Patrick who was the love of her life. Edward passed away in 2001 while they were vacationing together in the British Virgin Islands. She was also predeceased by her parents Armand and Gertrude (Delorme) Dauphinais. Bev and Ed had 4 children, 7 grandchildren and 2 great-grandsons. Their children are Brian (Linda) Miner of North Chatham, MA, Susan (Neil) LeBlanc of Washington, IL, Denise (Brian) Jacobson of Milford and Dennis (Bernadette) Miner of Chapel Hill, NC. Beverly loved her grandchildren Christopher, Matthew (Rebecca), Emily, Stephanie, Sarah, Samuel and Emma and was thrilled to be “GG” to Sean, Riley and baby boy LeBlanc due in April. She is survived by her siblings Sue (Aime) Boucher, Diane (Steve) Roney and Roger (Cynthia) Dauphinais, her sister in law, Dorothy (Miner) Beaudry and several nieces, nephews and godchildren.
Over the years Bev and Eddie shared their love for the beach and spent as much time as possible visiting southern Maine. In 2001, she bravely and independently relocated to the Ogunquit area. Her gift of being able to talk easily with neighbors and vacationers enabled her to quickly transition into new activities. The owners of Pine Tree Gift Shop first knew Bev as an enthusiastic customer and later as one of their best employees. In a unique coincidence, her ability to speak French fluently helped her to connect socially with significant numbers of French Canadian tourists and also endeared her to local merchants who could use her language skills to help close a sale. The owners of Fisherman’s Catch also knew Bev as a regular customer and later supplied her with a box of “Bev sent me” business cards used to promote and guide vacationers to a classic seaside dinner destination. Bev treasured visits by family and friends and enjoyed taking them to all her favorite places.
She was welcomed back to the Worcester area in 2014 by lifelong friends and new acquaintances at The Highlands in Westboro and Cornerstone Assisted Living of Milford.
She will be remembered as a reliable friend, an ultimate Red Sox fan and someone who used greeting cards to share important moments with people she cared about. With a phone in hand (corded or cordless), she was social media before social media was invented. Her most endearing and enduring friendships come from a Grafton Hill neighborhood in Worcester as well as St Joseph’s and Holy Name Catholic schools. Many people assume that Hallmark invented new cards and themes to serve her overwhelming desire to deliver personalized, on-time greeting cards for all occasions. In another example of a hobby opening new doors, she started a card-making business with fellow residents at The Highlands where 100% of sales were donated to the Community’s activity fund. Bev religiously watched 162 Red Sox games every year and was known to make in-game calls to her brother to celebrate or commiserate. In 2003, she became the Director of Public Relations and Vice-President of Everything Else for the Edward P. Miner Little League baseball summer camp program.
Always at the intersection of news and activity, she was a medical receptionist for Dr. Frederick McCready in the Park Building in Worcester following graduation from Salter Secretarial School. Her future husband was a newly graduated pharmacist on the ground floor of the same building at a time when prescriptions were called into the pharmacy. It’s been said that Eddie used every opportunity to phone Beverly upstairs for help in deciphering the doctor’s handwriting. Later, she had a similar role with Dr. Dalip Jain and others at Westboro Primary Care. In 1965 following the birth of her twins, she was the founder of the Worcester Mother of Twins Club and more than 50 years later the organization continues its support of parents and families of multiple birth children; Denise’s son Christopher also has twin boys.
Through the journey of life, Beverly was grateful to travel with special friends: Dolores (Doodie) Dumas and other Sisters of Saint Anne, Theresa Dauphinais, Lorraine Vayo, Claudette Alfego, Eleanor Dinneen, Carol Leavens, Pat Faucher, Laurie Ersing, Joan LeBeaux, MaryEllen Cebelli and many others who she cherished.
Calling hours will be at Roney Funeral Home in North Grafton on Friday the 24th from 4:00-8:00 PM. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St Mary’s Church in North Grafton on Saturday February 25th at 10:00 am followed by burial at Notre Dame Cemetery in Worcester. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation in her name to Rose Monahan Hospice c/o VNA Network and Hospice 120 Thomas St. Worcester, MA 01608.
