Beverly Iris Murrell passed away on Friday, August 14, 2020 in Hopkins. Beverly was born August 28, 1926 in St. Peter, to Jady and Josephine Larson. She was known affectionately by most who knew her as “Bubba”.

Her zest for life was unmatched. She enjoyed watching her grandchildren and great grandchildren play sports any chance she could, spending time with them for special occasions, and making sure there was a ready supply of homemade chocolate chip cookies for everyone.
