Beverly June Zaremba

Beverly June Zaremba passed from this life to her heavenly home on July 23, 2016. She is now at

rest in the loving arms of her Lord and Savior.

Beverly J. Zaremba was born March 29, 1941 at St Elizabeth's Hospital in Yakima to Walter Rediske and Alice (McConnehey) Rediske of Granger. She attended Granger schools and graduated from Granger High in 1959. She attended Sterling College in Kansas for a year before enrolling at Washington State, majoring in Interior Design. There she met her future husband, Ronald J

Zaremba. They were married in the Granger Presbyterian Church on August 11, 1962.

After graduation they moved to Seattle where both their daughters were born, Elizabeth on January 5, 1964 and Susan on February 22, 1965. In 1966, they moved to Sacramento, Calif. for three

years. They then moved to Yakima for a year and returned to Seattle for three more years.

In 1975, they moved back to Yakima and started their business, Zaremba Claims Service.They prospered in Yakima, allowing Beverly to return to being a full time home maker. She was an excellent cook, and loved to cook and entertain. She always had a project; gardening, sewing, flower arranging, knitting, crocheting, drawing and painting. She shared her life and love with Ron. She was a wonderful,

loving mother.

While her daughters were growing up, Beverly also served as a Camp Fire leader, a Master Gardener and was active in Toastmasters.

The family started backpacking and horse packing in 1970 in the Cascades; activities she continued for the next thirty years. She loved the outdoors. Environmental and conservation issues were important to her.

In 1985, they bought a trailer and RV'd throughout the West. They went hiking,

camping and canoeing whenever they could, especially with good friends and family. She wore out four pair of hiking boots and many flower books.

In 1994, anticipating retirement, they moved to Goldendale to build their new home there. A year later, she and Ron surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. Service and ministry became her focus, with an emphasis on hospitality. She served on short term mission trips with Dr James Ogden in Romania in 2005 and 2006. Starting in 2007, she and Ron spent most of the next three years as volunteers at a children's home, Nido del Aquila (Eagle's Nest), in Solola, Guatemala. Hospitality and service to visiting short term mission teams was her specialty. Her cooking and witness for the Lord won many hearts.

In 2010, she was diagnosed with stage four adenocarcinoma of unknown origin. She battled her cancer with faith, grace and joy. Her unfailing courage and joy was an inspiration to many. Every day was a blessing for her as she strived to glorify God by blessing others.

Although her eternal home is far better than the one she leaves behind; we, her friends and family, mourn her absence greatly.

Beverly was preceded in death by her parents, Walter and Alice Rediske, her sisters Shirley Rediske and Alice Smith(Ed), and her brother Ralph Rediske. She is survived by her husband of nearly 54 years, Ronald, her daughters, Elizabeth Johnson (Terry) and Susan Zaremba, her brother Earl "Jeff" Rediske of Prosser, WA, four grandchildren, and five great grandchildren plus fourteen nieces and

nephews.

On Saturday, July 30, there will be a grave side service at the IOOF Mountain View Cemetery in Goldendale at 10 a.m., a memorial service at the Grace Brethren Church in Goldendale at 11 a.m.,

followed by a shared fellowship meal. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in her honor to one of her favorite Guatemalan ministries: Eagle's Nest International, P O box 637, Burleson, TX 76097; Porch de Salomon, P.O. Box 10509, Tallahassee, FL, 32302-2509; or Jim and Shelley Dinsmore, c/o
