Beverly Anne Chilcoat

August 25, 1950 — April 14, 2024

Beverly was born to Jack and Lucille Whittington Woodard on August 25th, 1950, in Ponca City, OK.

She grew up in Bartlesville, as her father worked for Phillips 66. She graduated from College High School in 1968 and Oklahoma State University in 1972 with a degree in Education/Home Economics.

While in college, Beverly continued a lifelong love of dance, performing with the USO throughout a several state region. She was always active and became an aerobics instructor for many years.

She moved with her husband, Jack Compton, to Brownsville, Tx where she taught for the Port Isabelle Public Schools. When assigned to teach Special Education with no credentials or background, she pursued and obtained a degree in Special Education there, followed by a move to Arizona for Graduate work at the University of Arizona in Tucson. After earning a master's degree, they returned to the Tulsa area, where she taught Special Education for Jenks, Sand Springs, and finally retired from Bartlesville Public Schools after a three-decade long career. She also obtained a Licensed Professional Counselor's credentials.

Always a lover of children, Beverly and Jack wished to increase their family, so, in 1994, Adrienne joined the family. She was the light of their lives.

Being a singer and music lover, Beverly sang in the Living Christmas Tree in Tulsa and eventually won a spot in the Oklahoma Jubilee branch of the Sweet Adeline Barbershop Quartet organization. When she married Steve at The Dresser Masion, she joined her sisters in song as they serenaded him at the reception. Her association with this organization allowed her the opportunity to sing on the stage of Carnegie Hall in New York City, a feat of which she was justifiably proud.

She and husband, Steve Chilcoat, moved to the Pacific Northwest where they lived in Carnation, WA, a suburb of Seattle, until the early onset dementia she had been battling dictated the need for specialized care, when she returned to Tulsa.

She is survived by her husband, Steve, her daughter, Adrienne, two grandsons, Alex and Kamden, her brother, Gene Woodard, and his wife, Julie, two nieces, a nephew and a host of cousins and friends.

The family would like to thank Stonehaven for their care of Beverly in her last years and request that in lieu of flowers, a donation be made to Alzheimer's research or a charity of your choice.
