Beverly A. Witter, 92, was born on March 18, 1929 in Albert Lea, Minnesota and passed away on February 6, 2022, in Leesburg, FL. Beverly grew up on the family farm in Northern Iowa with her parents, Christine and Ted and brother Ralph. She went to college in Iowa and started her teaching career in Floyd, Iowa where she met Neil Witter, her husband of 51 years. They lived in Iowa, Missouri, and Illinois, where she taught school and finally settled in Leesburg, Florida in 1968 when they purchased the Mid-Lakes Motel and she took a hiatus from teaching. She went back to teaching in the early 70s at Minneola Elementary School after they moved to Howey, FL. Beverly enjoyed sewing, quilting, good books, gardening, flowers, playing cards with friends, and lots of hot coffee. She belonged to two quilting groups, Quilting Sisters and Pennrooke Quilting Club, both of which donated quilts to folks in need. Beverly and Neil enjoyed traveling and also living on the water. They owned the Flying Dutchman Resort on Lake Griffin in the early 70s and when they retired, they bought a summer cottage at St. Ansgar, Iowa on the Cedar River. Beverly was a devoted Christian and member of several Presbyterian Churches, the last of which is Grace Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Leesburg. She is survived by her daughter, Kristen Ogden, son Joseph Witter (Dale Marie), two grandsons, Jacob Witter (Melissa) and Philip Ogden and one great grandson, Payton Witter. She is predeceased by her husband Neil, brother, Ralph. A celebration of Beverly's life will be held on Saturday, February 19, 2022, at Grace Evangelical Presbyterian Church, 700 S. Ninth Street, Leesburg, FL 34748 at 2:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the building fund for Grace Evangelical Presbyterian Church.
