MILLINOCKET – Beverly Mingo, 87, passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 24, 2020. She was born October 2, 1933 in Millinocket, the daughter of Peter and Rena (Barnes) Russell.

Beverly graduated from Stearns High School in 1951 and Eastern Maine General Hospital School of X-Ray in 1953. She began working at the Millinocket Community Hospital when it opened in 1955. She was an X-ray technician for the first 20 years of her career and then worked as a Nuclear Medicine technologist until her retirement in 1991.

She was a lifelong member of the First Congregational Church and an active member of the women's auxiliary. She loved her beach time at South Twin, and like all native Mainers, wished for more summer days to sit in the sun with her toes in the sand.

Beverly is survived by her four children: James Jr. and wife Cathy of Holden; Sandra Kelley and husband Tom of Fort Myers, FL; Lisa Shorey and husband Phil of Millinocket; and David of Port Edwards, WI. She is also survived by brother Bill Russell and wife Ann of Millinocket, brother Peter Russell and wife Leslie of Salem, NH; grandsons Timothy Shorey and wife Robin, Randy Shorey and wife Billie, Joseph Shorey and wife Elyse, Austin Kelley, Aaron Mingo, Alex Mingo and wife Tundi, Samuel Mingo and wife Elizabeth; and several great-grandchildren.

She was predeceased by her parents, husband James, sister Jean, and granddaughter Heather.

The family wishes to thank the staff of the Katahdin Nursing Home for their concern and care during her residency. Mom always said that they treated her awfully well. We know that same level of care was maintained right through to the end.

Funeral services will be held at a later date at the First Congregational Church in Millinocket, with committal to follow at the Millinocket Cemetery.

Gifts in memory of Beverly may be sent to the First Congregational Church of Millinocket, 247 Katahdin Avenue, Millinocket, ME 04462.

Heaven has gained another angel with our loss of Beverly. What a sweet, caring person she was. My sincerest heartfelt sympathies to Bev and Jim's family and friends. They were both life long friends of mine and my family. I can still hear Jim's roar of laughter after setting up his friends (and others) with his latest prank and see Bev's quiet supportive smile, because she knew what was coming. They are missed and will be missed by many. Rest well my friends....

Dear Sandy, although I do not know the rest of your family, I did know your dad very well. Knew your mom from having X-rays at MRH. She was a sweet person.. Your dad was a good friend to my husband Nick,, working in the Paper Room at GNP. Love you and miss you. So very sorry for the loss of your mom.

Lisa-so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. She certainly was a sweet woman. I’m glad to have met you and her when she and Viola were “roomies “ at KHC. Charlene Cram

What a sweet woman. My Mom always loved your Mother. I remember Beverly sewed my prom dress, and had a neighborhood wedding shower for me. Loved growing up in this neighborhood where all the Mothers looked out for all the children on the block. Loosing a parent is so very hard. I will be keeping your family in my prayers.

Dear Lisa and all Beverly’s family, I was so happy when Bev became a part of our Coffee Group 5 mornings a week at MacDonald’s! She was quiet, but always had something to add to our group. After Bill entered the nursing home in 2018 I got to see Bev almost every day. She would recognize me but would wait till I spoke to her. Rest In Peace dear Beverly, you have earned your place in Heaven! Till we meet again, Sharon Hallett
