Mrs. Thoma, 97, of Rochester, died January 13, 2018 at the Charter House.

On July 26, 1947, she married William Thoma in West Allis. They moved to Rochester in the fall of 1956. Beverly volunteered for the Salvation Army, American Cancer Society, YMCA, and YWCA. She was a member of the League of Women Voters, American Chemical Society, American Association of University Women, and the PEO Sisterhood. She enjoyed traveling the world, making and teaching ceramics, gardening, cheering on the Minnesota Vikings and doing puzzle books.
She is preceded in death by her husband, William Thoma.
She is remembered by her nieces Carol Thoma of St. Petersburg, Florida, Christine Thoma and her husband, Lee Rosenberg and grand nephew and grandniece Emily and Noah Rosenberg of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
