Beverly Duvall Stallcup Tadlock

NORMAN — Beverly Duvall Stallcup Tadlock, 82, of Norman, passed way late Sunday evening, April 7, 2013, at the HealthPlex in Norman, following an accident. Beverly was born Oct. 3, 1930, in Houston, the daughter of Finis Hugh and Thelma Johnny (Hendrix) Spears.

Services will be 2 p.m. Thursday at the McFarlin Memorial United Methodist Church, 419 S. University Blvd. in Norman, with Rev. Randy Wade and Rev. Cal Brannon officiating.

Beverly attended public schools in Houston, graduating from Reagan High School in 1948. She was united in marriage to Mr. Harry Earl Duvall on Aug. 24, 1950, in Houston. Beverly worked as a legal secretary for Magnolia Oil Company in Houston and was a pre-school teacher for a brief time before moving to Norman on July 23, 1973. After moving to Norman, Beverly worked for Norman Regional Hospital in the admitting and X-ray departments, later working for Dr. Gerald McCullough, MD, of Norman for more than 13 years before her retirement in 1987. Her husband, Harry, preceded her in death on April 19, 1986.

Beverly later married Rives Stallcup in August 1988. He preceded her in death on May 19, 1999. She then married Bill Tadlock on Aug. 28, 2005, enjoying nearly eight years of marriage before Bill passed away on March 6, 2013.

Beverly was a genuinely happy individual, always sharing her bubbly personality with others. When she encountered people she didn’t know, it wasn’t long before she knew everything about them. Beverly simply wanted the best for others and would go out of her way to make sure people felt appreciated and loved.

Beverly enjoyed square dancing, participating in memberships with the Rainbow Girls and the Reagan Red Coats and served as a lieutenant for the Drum and Bugle Corp. She was a member of McFarlin UMW Circle No. 11 and Fellowship Sunday School.

Her greatest joy, however, was spending time with her family. Beverly enjoyed preparing meals and was especially good at making a great turkey hash. She also enjoyed being involved with her family’s lives, often stepping in to help where needed. Simply put, she was an amazing person with an amazing heart. We will truly miss her kindred spirit and warm smile.
