NOTE: There are several points of confusion in this obituary. Beverly's mother's maiden name is not Freedman. Her mother was not married to Josephus Freeman at the time of her birth. He later became her step-father. Anya Wells is not a daughter; she is the mother of Paul Muir's children. Monique Meilleur is also not a daughter; she is the ex-girlfriend of James Muir and the mother of his children. Kenny Rogers is also not a son according to two of her children.
