Beverly A. (Lang) Casperson, 83, of Green Bay, passed away Friday, March 13, 2020 at home with her children by her side.
Born June 14, 1936, to the late Bernard and Florence (Marineau) Lang in Marinette, she graduated from Lourdes High School in 1954. She married Clifford Casperson in 1956 and they had five children. They later divorced in 1974. She worked in the food service profession for over 65 years, managing the Hot Lunch Program for the Catholic Schools in the Marinette area and retired as a Certified Registered Dietary Director in Nutrition and Management from Encompass Daycare, which was a pride of her career.
A speed reader, she enjoyed reading nutrition and medical books, loved the outdoors, raising plants from seed and maintaining the family's seven cemetery plots for over 65 years. She loved spending Holidays with family, but her highest priority was to raise her children the way her parents raised her, properly, unselfish, respectful and together.
She is survived by four sons, Michael (Chris), Terry, Kim (Rose) and Jeff, all of Green Bay; nine grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; a brother, Bernie (Libbie) Lang of Menominee; a sister-in-law, Deanna Lang of Marinette and many nieces; nephews; aunts; uncles and cousins of the extended family.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a daughter, Lynn; a sister, Nancy Lord; a brother, James; a grandson, Paul Lear; a granddaughter, Leslie Casperson; a nephew, Jim Lord; a niece, Rachelle Lang and an uncle, Edward Lang.
