Beverly Sue Woodyard Eads, 85 of Berea, Kentucky, went home to be with the Lord whom she loved, on Saturday, November 28, 2020. She was born on December 25, 1934 in Cincinnati, Ohio to the late Chester Ray Woodyard and Anna Elizabeth Smitha Woodyard.

She was a loving and devoted wife to Harold for 68 years. They were united in marriage on April 18, 1952. She worked as the secretary for Eads Fence Company, which her husband Harold started in Madison County more than 50 years ago. One of her greatest jobs was being a pastor’s wife. She was always a friend to anyone who needed one, and worked tirelessly alongside her husband at the The Holy Sanctuary Church in Berea. She was always so approachable with her big smile and outgoing personality. The young people of the church and new Christians, always felt at ease to talk with her as she gave them advice and encouragement on living for the Lord.
