DESSAINTS, BEVERLY  
BEVERLY DESSAINTS 1942-2016 Beverly Ann Dessaints, 74, of Las Vegas, was called home Sunday, May 22, 2016. An Angel whispered to this beautiful lady and said take my hand and come with me, your work here is done. She went away to a place where there's no tears, nor sorrow or pain, only laughter and smiles and there will always be a tomorrow. As the Angel held her hand she whispered once again and said do not be afraid my child you are not alone, all who went before you are there awaiting for your return. Beverly hesitated for a moment until she heard our words, "It's alright Mom, we will be ok, we will take care of Dad." As we wept and held her hands, a tear fell from her eye and she passed quietly. She was surrounded by her loving husband and family. Beverly was reunited with her parents, Velma Jean Herring and Norbert "Bud" Schuette; her grandson, Cory Ice; and those that she loved from many years before. It was a great celebration you see, it was her birthday on that special day, when our Heavenly Father called her back home to thee. Beverly was born May 22, 1942, in Blackburn, Mo. She moved to Lovelock during her childhood years and then relocated to Las Vegas during her teen years. She attended Rancho High School and married her high school sweetheart, Jack Dessaints, of Quebec, Canada, Sept. 26, 1959. Beverly is survived by her husband, of 56 years; her four children, Denise Skougard (Gary), Charlene Dessaints, Suzanne Dessaints-Prince (Kevin) and Liana Dessaints; nine grandchildren; six great grandchildren; and her brothers, Ken Grein (Eileen) of Reno, and Daryle Hill (Lisa) of Eldon, Mo. Beverly worked alongside her husband for 41 years building and operating their automotive machine shop business, Jack's Machine Shop. She and her husband, Jack, retired in 2011 and have been enjoying the fruits of their labor, traveling around the United States in their motorhome. She had a love for animals and could never turn an abandoned or stray dog away. Every opportunity given she was donating to charities for the homeless and abused animals. She had a heart of gold and was always there to help her family when in need. Beverly loved unconditionally and whole-heartily. She will be truly missed by all who knew and loved her. "Until we meet again Mom, we love you." Viewing will be 9-10:45 a.m. Friday, June 3, with celebration of life service following at 11 a.m., both at Palm Mortuary, 1325 Main St., Las Vegas.
