Beverly was born August 24, 1942 in Oelwein, Iowa to Arthur and Marguerite (Burke) Burrack. She graduated from MFL in 1961 and went on to graduate from beauty school in 1962. In the same year she was united in marriage to Roger Tayek in Farmersburg, Iowa. Beverly and Roger started their lives together in Monona, Iowa on a family farm. In 1970 Beverly and Roger moved to Marion, Iowa where she started her own in-home beauty shop that lasted until her retirement in 2019.
Beverly loved to go dancing, playing cards, knitting & crocheting, baking, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. Without fail, Beverly always had to have a new outfit for every occasion, or just because. And with every new outfit, she of course had to have a matching pair of shoes. 

Beverly is survived by her husband of fifty eight years, Roger of Marion; children, Robin (David) Shrope of Marion and Rodney Tayek (Arletta Henry) of Anamosa; grandchildren, Chad (Kati) Brown of Marion; Whitney Shrope of Marion; and Samantha Tayek of Cedar Rapids; great-grandchildren Grant, Vincent, Lucas Brown and Hayden, Izabella Curtis all of Marion; siblings, Rex (Marlene) Burrack of Marion, Helen (Fitz) Fitzgerald of Gypsum, Colorado; Mary (Fred) Torres of Laguna Vista, Texas; and Joan Walke of Guttenberg; brother-in-law Ron (Gloria) Tayek of Farmersburg; sister-in-law, Marlys (David) Kaiser of Saskatchewan, Canada; along with many nieces, nephews, cousins, clients, and friends.    

She was preceded in death by her parents, her mother and father-in-law Donald and Marcella Tayek; brother-in-law, Bob Walke; sister-in-law’s, Wanda Burrack and Maxine Johnson; nephews Jake Tayek, and Mike Johnson. 

She was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend; Beverly will truly be missed by all who knew her. 
A special thanks to UnityPoint St. Luke’s Hospice for their tender and loving care given to Beverly.
