Tributes for

Schick, Beverly

Schick, Beverly, 91, of Santa Ana, California, passed away peacefully on Friday, May 1st, 2015. Beverly is survived by her sisters, Billie Johnson and Barbara Geitner; sons, Gordon and Steven; and her grandchildren, Stephanie, Christine, John, Kevin and Philip. She was preceded in death by her husband, Arthur Schick Jr. and her son, Arthur Schick III.

Beverly was born July 15, 1923 in the small farming community of Maquon, Illinois. After finishing high school at age 16, she went on to graduate from Illinois State University, Normal. During her studies there, she met and shortly after married Arthur Schick Jr. "Art" in 1944. Art joined the Navy at the outbreak of WWII, and they were stationed in Southern California for both WWII and the Korean War.

Years later and with three young boys, Beverly and Art made a final move from Davenport, Iowa to Santa Ana, California to start their own business in the same industry Art had grown up in. In 1956, they opened Schick Moving and Storage as an agent for Allied Van Lines in Santa Ana. Beverly thoroughly supported her husband in the business and was equally committed to help the company succeed.

Beverly was extremely patriotic and active in many political associations. She demonstrated her love for America by serving as President of Republican Women of Santa Ana and as President of the local chapter of Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge for several years.

Beverly was also a self-taught nutritionist and health icon among her many friends and family. Her expertise in almost every area of health kept her so well she lived on her own, renewed a driver's license without restrictions, and got a puppy at age 90.

The Christian community was a huge part of Beverly's life. She was a member of many church groups and a generous sponsor of missionaries and ministries around the world.

Beverly was notorious for making friends anywhere she went and staying in touch regardless of life's busy schedule. But most of all, Beverly will be remembered as a loving wife, sister, mother, and grandmother who would do anything for her family.
