To the Kuperus Family,
Beppe was a blessing to all who had the privilege of having her in our lives! Her laughter will be fondly remembered as well as her smile! Her love of her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren was evidenced by all. She was a top notch homemaker who excelled in all aspects, as well as cooking, canning, needle crafts, and all the things woman aspire to do; she did it so well! She has been an indelible part of my life for over 36 years, and I’m all the better for it! I will wear my favorite color purple/fuchsia crocheted slippers made with love by Beppe all the days of my life! Dance with the angels, Beppe, where you are in perfect health and perfect peace! You will be so missed always, and I love you! A Beautiful life lived! Love, Debbie Howell Ayers ❤️😢
