Ms. Beverly Lynn Jilton, age 64, Johnson City, passed away Friday, November 2, 2018 surrounded by loved ones in the home she happily shared with her father, Joe Jilton.
She was born in Johnson City and was the daughter of the late Jeanette Jilton and survived by her father, Joe Jilton, ex-husband, James Roupas, her children, Jennifer Widener and Dylan Roupas; two grandsons, Michael and Christian Widener; son-in-law, Andre Widener; brother, Larry Jilton; and two nephews, Jason and Jared Jilton.
She was a very brave, strong and loving woman who successfully fought cancer for many years before succumbing to the illness. She was a lover of life and loved by many. Survived by many more family members and friends too numerous to name as well as the wonderful staff at Avalon Hospice.
Graveside services will be conducted 2:00 pm Thursday, November 8, 2018 at Cherokee Baptist Cemetery.
Pallbearers will be family & friends.
I will always remember Beverly's smile and how
much fun she was to be around. She was a
beautiful girl with a beautiful soul and she will
be missed. Even though she may have left this
earth, she will still live on in the loving
thoughts of us all and although saddened by her
passing, I, for one, feel so lucky she was my
cousin and that I had the wonderful opportunity to
have known her.

Please know I am praying for comfort and peace during your time of loss.
During the short time I shared with her, we always had an enjoyment of life and at ease with one another. I especially loved going to "the farm" and just being with family.
My husband and I will continue to keep your family in our thoughts.
