I have wonderful memories of visits to Aunt Janet’s home in Dallas, family reunions, and her visits to us in llinois. Her warmth and love always made me feel at home when we came to visit. I loved how she was so quick to smile and laugh. Janet gave so much of her life to serve on the mission field which impacted my life and my love for missions. While I did not end up on the mission field as I had planned, I have a love and passion for missions that started with Dad and Mom telling us about what she and Uncle John were doing in Guatemala and praying for them. I was and am so proud of her! Thank you for being the godly example you are! I love you, Aunt Janet!!!!
I was just a little girl when ‘Uncle John’ returned from furlough with his beautiful bride–it seemed like a fairy tale to me. Friendship with the Gutes stretched through the decades –as colleagues in Guatemala serving the Mam people, through the years when the Beverages returned to Texas, and finally as fellow residents of Go Ye Village. We have a number of photos of them celebrating special occasions at the Fin and Feather or picnicking at Lake Tenkiller. When my folks gave up their car Janet graciously offered the use of her car whenever Becky and I visited –for trips to doctor appointments, Braums or drives in the countryside. No trip to Go Ye was complete without a visit with Janet. I was repeatedly blessed by her sweet spirit, gracious hospitality and her love for her family and her Lord.
Praying God’s comfort and grace for you in this season of grieving. Thankful that in all of this we have hope because of Jesus.
John and Janet were very special people. Just like the proverbial “horse and carriage”, they just went together. You couldn’t have one without the other. Some couples are like that–a dynamic duo. And what a duo they were. I first met them at Reinhardt Bible Church back in the late 70’s. They were each very personable and warm, gracious at every point. I have each of their smiles seared in my memory. John had a wry expression when he had told you a good joke. Janet’s face always showed contentment and understanding, at peace with the world through her eyes of faith. They left their mark on me and many others. They put shoe leather on their faith, and all could and did see. The world is a better place because of the touch John and Janet left on it. If we only had more of them to go around!
I was 12 years old when Susan Beverage Hepp and I became friends, and by extension, I came to know the entire Beverage family.
I wish I could stand with the three of you today to mourn your loss and to celebrate your mother’s arrival at heaven’s gate and reunion with your father.
My primary remembrance of Mrs. Beverage was of a kind, cheery woman who welcomed all to her home. She was always busy cooking or cleaning. I also think back to days at Reinhardt caring for babies in the nursery with her, Mrs. Geiger, and others. I am thankful for the godly example she set as a wife and mother.
I join with others who rise up and call her blessed. My prayer is that the three of you will be carried by the Lord as you grieve.
Prayers for the family! So thankful for God’s promises of salvation and knowing you’ll see her again.
Jerry, Tommie and Holli are blessed with wonderful and precious memories of worshiping and serving with Janet and John for over 20 years, at Reinhardt Bible Church. Janet was always such an encourager and a great example of the woman described in Proverbs 31:28. Her quite, loving and sincere personality resoundingly brought God glory each and every day.
John kept the most complete and exceptional libraries, at the seminary and at the church. Janet’s ministries, though in different areas than John’s, were equally dynamic, as she always showed her love for Jesus, her family and all who came her way. Jesus is and has been building “a heavenly mansion” for every believer. We are thankful Janet is now in her “forever home.”
We are grateful for the years we had with Janet and we look forward to being with her again, as well as being united with all our treasured brothers and sisters in Christ.
Our deepest love and prayers to you, Susan, and to the entire family.
Dr. Jerry, Tommie and Holli Loveless
Alice and I were blessed to have known John and Janet our entire married lives. Actually, Alice and Janet were in language school together in Costa Rica, and John and I at Dallas Seminary, pre-marriage. We always thoroughly enjoyed our all-too-infrequent times together. I remember Janet as a gentle-but-strong, positive, fun, gracious, godly, servant-hearted lady. She and John made such a great team. It is comforting to know that they and Alice are reunited in heaven, surely regaling each other with stories of their rich, adventuresome lives here on earth. I can’t wait to join them! With fond, blessed memories of them, prayers for the family members, and with love to you all, Don Geiger
