Beverly and Howard relocated to Plattsburgh where she worked with her husband in the operation of H.D. Westcott Auto Electric Co. She later worked at the Fineburg Library at SUNY Plattsburgh and retired in 1989 after 23 years with the Peru School District on the South Side of the former Plattsburgh Air Force Base. In her spare time she volunteered at Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital in Plattsburgh.
Throughout her life, Beverly enjoyed boating and camping, skiing at Whiteface Mountain and going to Myrtle Beach.
