 Beverly Hewett-Fretz

Beverly Joy Hewett-Fretz of Mosier, Ore., passed from this life into the arms of her Lord and Savior, on March 14, 2019, at the age of 92.

 Beverly was born Oct. 25, 1926, in Omaha, Neb., to Oscar Ragnar E. and Sigrid Louise (Gjertson) Anderson.  After graduation from high school in Omaha she went into nurses training at the Omaha General Hospital and received her certificate of nursing and her white cap (of which she was extremely proud) at the age of twenty-one.  Beverly, pursuing her career in pediatrics, left Omaha in January of 1949 to begin working at OHSU in Portland, Oregon.

 In September of that year she married Floyd Hewett in Portland.
