Beverly Ann Bistor, born January 11, 1938 in Mohawk, NY to Evelyn and Clayton Casler, passed peacefully into the welcoming arms of our Lord on February 5, 2019 at the age of 81.
Beverly was the beautiful and beloved wife of Robert H. Bistor to whom she was married for almost 62 years. She spent her early life growing up in Middleville, NY and Scotia, NY. After marrying her husband in 1957 in Scotia, NY, they moved to Newburgh, NY and eventually settled in Colden Park where they raised their three sons. Among her many volunteer activities, Beverly was very active in Cub Scouting in Hudson-Delaware Council (now Hudson Valley Council) where she began volunteering as her sons’ den mother and eventually ran the council’s monthly roundtable training meeting for many years. In recognition for all of her contributions to Scouting, the council awarded her the prestigious Silver Beaver Award. Beverly retired from Sears Roebuck Company and she and her husband have spent the last 5 years as residents of Orlando, FL.
Besides her husband, Beverly is also survived by her three sons, Robert D. Bistor and his wife Maureen of Orlando, FL; David S. Bistor of Rio Rancho, NM; and Tad J. Bistor of South Windsor, CT; her sister Marlene Quinn of Louisville, KY; her brother Robert Casler of Clifton Park, NY; her four grandchildren, Christopher and Steven Bistor of Newburgh, NY; Sabrina Shea of Odessa, FL; and Jaime LeFleur of Tampa, FL, as well as nieces, Sharon Elzy and Mary Ellen Padgett of Louisville, KY; Melissa Cross of Plattsburgh, NY; and Julie Brown of East Greenbush, NY; nephews, Mark Quinn of Louisville, KY; Matthew Casler of Scotia, NY; and Paul Casler of Denver, CO; and great-grandchildren, great-nieces and great-nephews.
