Beverly Ann Krieger

It is with sadness the family of Beverly Ann Brigance-Krieger (10/18/1932-9/6/2018) announce her passing on Thursday September 6, 2018. She will be lovingly remembered by her daughters Katherine Krieger-Phillips and Patricia Susan Krieger as well as grandchildren Lauren and Ryan Phillips. Her creative spirit, generosity, and love will remain in our hearts forever. A Celebration of Life was held at Mission Trails Park at Lake Murray in La Mesa on Sunday September 9th.
She grew up in Pulaski, Tennessee, raised by her mother and grandparents, minus a father. Her life was filled with so many accomplishments that we are so proud of! She was active in school being a drum majorette, had a column in "The Pulaski Citizen" called the "Teen Tattle", and was a homecoming attendant at Giles County High School. She worked a summer at Yellowstone National Park, and the next summer at Smoke Tree Ranch in Palm Springs where she rubbed elbows with the likes of Sammy Davis Jr. and Frank Sinatra. She also was a newspaper reporter for "The Daily Californian" in El Cajon, CA. From there, she was a stewardess for American Airlines where she and Thomas Krieger met in Buffalo, NY, and later married.
She continued her career path even after daughters Kathy and Susan were born by working in the drama department at Grossmont College in San Diego. She did everything from being the assistant to the head of the drama department, to doing the make-up for for the actors in the plays. She even acted in some of the plays, one in particular - "The Whales of August", where she won a Best Supporting Actress Award.
She has had several hobbies from crafting to weaving, quilting, painting, and most recently, rug hooking. She loved entertaining, and when she opened her home, it was always in the most warm and welcoming way. Holidays were memorable and special because of her warmth, her cooking and decorating skills, and her love. She also loved people, and it was not uncommon for her to strike up a conversation with even a stranger. We will love her forever and always - Until we meet again... (POSTED 09/14/2018)
