Beverly F. (Plummer) Qualters, 83, of Melrose, MA, and formerly of Lawrence, MA, passed away peacefully on Saturday, June 5, 2021, at Greenwood Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Wakefield, MA. She was the daughter of the late Charles J. and Mary R. (Comforti) Plummer.
Born and raised in Lawrence, Beverly attended schools in Lawrence and graduated from St. Mary’s High School in 1955. Shortly after graduation, Beverly began working as a telephone operator at AT&T. She worked for the company and its successors in a variety of administrative roles for 35 years, ultimately retiring from Nynex, now Verizon, in the 1990s.
Beverly treasured the trips she made to Europe and the Caribbean with friends, and time she spent in Florida and at area beaches with her daughter, Sheri. She loved eating out, visiting with family and friends, going to the theater, spending time at the ocean, doing crossword puzzles, and reading.
In addition to her parents, Beverly was predeceased by her brother, Charles L. Plummer and sister, Linda S. Plummer.
She is survived by her daughter, Sheri Qualters and son-in-law, Kenneth Foster, Jr. of Melrose; cousins, Rosemarie Bazin of North Andover, MA, and Sandra Scott of Salem, NH, and their families.
