Beverly Jean Carter, née Parmalee, was born November 27th, 1943 to Frederick Allison and Vivian Arlene (Warfle) Parmalee in Williamston, Michigan. She is survived by her three daughters, Beki (Bryce) Henderson, Tami Steiner, and Jill (Wade) Rosenbaum, seven grandchildren, Amanda (Brad Brunger) Cairns, Alise (Alex) Houpt, Taylor and Bailey Henderson, Kendyl, Macy, and Parker Rosenbaum, and five great-grandchildren, Brayden, Channing, Ayvianah Cairns, and Rheilynn and Kennedy Houpt. She is also survived by three brothers, Dar (Jody), Dick (Sue), and Danny (Lori) Parmalee, and so many beloved cousins, nieces and nephews. Bev graduated from Perry High School in the class of 1961 before putting 40 plus years in for the state of Michigan. After retiring from the DNR in 2003, Bev devoted her life completely to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was their biggest fan and attended every school and sporting event she could as she loved watching her grandchildren. She cherished her lunch outings with cousins, former classmates and coworkers, and loved to keep up with her friends and family. Services will be held at Watkins Brothers Funeral Home in Perry, with visitations Tuesday 2-4 and 6-8, with funeral Wednesday at 11 am, with luncheon to follow. Donations can be made in her honor to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
