Beverly Jean Ranek was born on Thursday, August 21, 1930 at Tyndall, South Dakota to Karl and Freda (Rueb) Schmoll. She attended Tyndall High School. She began working as a waitress at the Ranek Café, where she met Basil Ranek. They were united in marriage on February 13, 1950 in Tyndall. They owned and operated the café until 1959. She provided childcare in her home for many years. Beverly was a devoted homemaker, and spent her time caring for her husband and children. She was a life-long member of St. Leo Catholic Church and served in the St. Leo Altar Society. Beverly passed away surrounded by her family on Sunday, March 11, 2012 at the Good Samaritan Society of Tyndall at the age of 81 years, 6 months, and 21 days.
Grateful for having shared Beverly’s life are her three children: Timothy (Dawn) Ranek of Conroe, Texas, Julie Ranek (Roger) Schmidt of Yankton, and Joanie (William) Crews of Tyndall; nine grandchildren and step-grandchildren: Ariel Hood, Samantha Crews, Abigail Crews, Justin Zoburg, Ashley Crespo, Amaris Crespo, Samara Crespo, Brianna Crespo, and Jonathan Kroger; and one great-grandson, Anthony Lopez; a brother, Elmer Schmoll of California; and one sister, Leona (Laddie) Becvar of Tyndall.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Basil Ranek, in October of 1995, her father, Karl Schmoll, her mother, Freda (Rueb) Schmoll Bren, her step-father, Ed Bren, and three sisters: Marcella Younger, Viola Stemper and Leona Irene Schmoll, in infancy.
