Beverly Catherine Huard Zabek

Beverly Catherine Huard Zabek, 97, of Owensboro, went to be with the Lord on April 3, 2024, surrounded by her family. She was born in North Brookfield, MA, on December 30, 1926, to the late William and Elizabeth Hack Huard. In North Brookfield, Beverly played multiple roles; she was a Girl Scout leader, participated in the Saint Joseph's Women's Club, and served in the Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary. In Owensboro, she was a member of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church and volunteered for parish picnics. She also dedicated her time to the Daniel Patino Shelter. Beyond her community involvement, Beverly found joy in basketball, passionately supporting the University of Kentucky and the Boston Celtics. She loved visiting with her neighbors and was always willing to lend a helping hand when needed or just providing company. Her interests extended to motorsports, where she followed Formula One and NASCAR races, alongside a deep appreciation for classic cars. Additionally, Beverly loved puzzles, quilting, and bingo.

Her greatest joy came from the moments shared with loved ones, with a special emphasis on her great-granddaughter and her family.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Leon A. Zabek, and son, James M. Zabek.  

Those left to cherish her memory include her granddaughter, Sara E. Zabek (Chase), and great-granddaughter, Madison L. Morgan.

Burial will be in Walnut Grove Cemetery in North Brookfield, MA.

The family would like to extend a special thanks to the staff who provided amazing care at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital as well as Hospice.
