Beverley was born December 10th 1929 in her maternal grandparents home to George R. Spear and Marie Fuller Spear located on Dickinson at the corner of 5th Street. She was the first of four children. She grew up at 253 Dickinson only two blocks from where she was born. She attended Dickinson School followed by St. Louis School and eventually graduated from St. Mary’s High School in Mount Clemens in 1948. As a teenager she worked for her dad at Spears Cleaners and spent most Saturday nights at the 9/20 Club on Broadway where she met the love of her life, Edward Tromley. The two were married on September 10th 1949. The couple have five children. Karen who lives in Marquette, MI., Larry, Randy and Tim who reside in Macomb County and Mary Ann who lives in Newcastle, WY.

In 1953 they bought their first home on North River Road in Harrison Township, in which they still reside. In 1964 they opened Cass Cycle Shop located on Cass Avenue which kept the family busy over the years. They enjoy many of their holidays in the Upper Peninsula walking the Macinac Bridge with their fourteen grandchildren and as of 2007 three great grandchildren. In the last three years she has been blessed with twelve additional great grandchildren with two more on the way. Since selling the bike shop Beverly has been enjoying her retirement by being actively involved in the community. She has joined a class at L’anse Creuse that travels our great State of Michigan visiting old churches, museums, and other historical sites. She is a current member of the Macomb County Historical Society as well as the Harrison Township Historical Commission. In her free time she also enjoys singing in the Resurrection choir at St. Peter’s Church in Mount Clemens.

Beverly is a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, she is a fifth generation resident of Macomb County and an active and essential member of our great community. She truly defines what the Daughters of Macomb embodies and we are delighted to have her represent our sisterhood this year as the 2016 Grand DOM.
