Beverly J. Carothers

January 26, 1944 — December 11, 2021

Beverly J. Carothers, age 77, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, December 11, 2021 at her home in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Born in Norwood, Massachusetts on January 26, 1944, she was the daughter of the late George Carothers and Barbara (Allen) Larouche. She spent her early years in Norfolk before settling in Walpole, Massachusetts with her family, where she graduated from Walpole High School with the Class of 1962. Following her graduation, Beverly made her home in Boston and took a position with the Home for Little Wanderers in Jamaica Plain.

In 1967, Beverly took a position with the Polaroid Company and began taking classes at Northeastern University to enhance her career. As her career developed, Beverly made her home in Brockton, Massachusetts and continued coursework at Simmons College and Lesley University. Her hard work paid off when she was named Human Resources Manager at Polaroid. After her mother passed, Beverly moved into her home in Sharon, Massachusetts and a few years later, she retired from Polaroid, with thirty-two years of service.

While Beverly worked hard, she also knew the value of giving back to her community. She was a past board member of Boston Youth Motivation; was very active with the NAACP, earning the president's award; and worked on many other community organizations addressing equal and civil rights over the course of her lifetime.

Beverly was an avid Boston sports fan, who loved following her hometown teams, the New England Patriots and Boston Celtics.

She is survived by her godchild, Sherri Yenser of Mesa, Arizona and her son Zach Beagle of Woonsocket, Rhode Island.
Beverly is also survived by several cousins and many close friends.

At Beverly's request, all services will be private, with interment taking place in Rock Ridge Cemetery in Sharon. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to: Saint Jude Children's Research Hospital 501 St. Jude Place Memphis, TN 38105.
