Beverly (Bev) Seibring, 88, of Chebanse passed away on Sunday, September 12, 2021 at Riverside Medical Center in Kankakee. She was born November 27, 1932 in Chebanse, the daughter of Lloyd and Lucille (Irps) Burling.
Beverly married Lawrence R. Seibring on February 13, 1954 at the United Church of Christ in Chebanse. Bev was the proud mother of four sons, Ron (Jan) Seibring of St. Cloud, MN, Doug (Cindy) Seibring of Chebanse, Steve (Sue) Seibring of Normal and Scott (Stacy) Seibring of Towanda. Other family includes one sister Marilyn "Pat" (Gerald) Hubert of Martinton, one brother Lloyd "Butch" D. (Bobbie) Burling of St. Anne, thirteen grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren. Bev was preceded in death by her parents Lloyd and Lucille and sister in law Bobbie.
Bev was a member of the United Church of Christ in Chebanse where she was choir director for nearly 70 years and pianist for over 20 years serving in both roles until her passing. Bev and her mother combined for over 80 years as organist/pianist at the church. Bev also served many years as the UCC Youth Group director. She was an active member of the Chebanse community serving on numerous civic organizations. Most recently she was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary #408, volunteered at Miller Health Care Center, the Clifton Food Pantry and many others. Bev will be fondly remembered by hundreds of students and staff as she served as secretary at Chebanse Grade School for 20 years. Twenty to thirty years after she retired she would be approached by former students who would share kind feelings toward her.
Bev thoroughly enjoyed following her children's, grandchildren and greatgrandchildren's activities. She will be remembered for her love of music and friendship but she had no greater passion than her love of family. The only love that was greater than her love of her family was their love of her.
Visitation will be from 4:00pm - 8:00pm on Friday, September 17, 2021 at the Knapp Funeral Home in Clifton.
Funeral services will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, September 18, 2021 at the United Church of Christ in Chebanse. Pastor Marsha Collins will officiate. Burial will follow at Evergreen Cemetery in Chebanse.
