Beverly earned her Bachelor of Arts and Master of Science in Education degrees from Baylor University. She was a proud member of the Class of 1958. While working on her master's degree, she met Tom Brand who was working on his doctorate at the time. They married on Aug 29, 1961 in Fort Worth, Texas.

Beverly was a devoted wife and mother. She spent many years as a stay-at-home mom before the death of her husband Dr. Thomas O. Brand. Beverly was extremely proud and supportive of her husband.

She loved to travel. She and her husband and daughter visited the East and West coasts of the U.S., Mexico, and Canada. The last trip Beverly took was to Mount Rushmore around 2012, which was also her first plane trip. She wasn't the least bit afraid. She loved it!
