Beverly was born on January 8, 1929, to the late Harvey and Josephine Meton. Beverly grew up in Oshkosh, WI., On September 25, 1948, she married the love of her life, George Hinske.

Beverly was a dedicated mother, devoting her time to her family. She worked part time at the Menasha Red Owl as a cashier, where many have memories of Bev’s kindness, unique high voice and iconic flip hairstyle.


Beverly loved her long walks everyday, baseball and golf. She and George traveled every year to Palm Springs, CA to watch the Bob Hope Dessert Classic. They made Palm Springs their second home every winter, met many pro golfers and celebrities, and had numerous friends, quite a wonderful life.


Beverly was the sweetest woman, loved God and lived her life that way. She was always dressed meticulously, and her hair was always styled to perfection.


“Grama, since grampa passed in 2001, you have missed him. Now Jesus has called you, so you can both be joined together again in his arms.”


Beverly will be sadly missed by her children, Mark (Connie) Hinske, Menasha, Dean (Kathie) Hinske, Sister Bay, and special friend DeLane VanLinn, Menasha. She will be lovingly remembered by her 11 grandchildren, Dana, Sarah, Aaron, Laura, Matthew, Reggie, Michael, Jonathan, Ryan, Rachel and Eric, and 23 great grandchildren.
