Beverly Anne Jinnett, 61, of Hillsborough passed away unexpectedly at her home on August 24, 2014. Beverly was born December 23, 1952 in Savannah, GA to the late Bruce L. and Evelyn S. Jinnett. Surviving is her loving sister, Barbara J. Sykes of Raleigh and her fur babies.
Beverly considered herself a wildlife warrior. She enjoyed taking care of not only her pet rabbits, dogs, ducks, etc… but also her wild life. She cherished sitting on her land watching the squirrels, deer, foxes, gophers, etc. She took delight in creating life, in her gardening. Her hobby was painting outdoor figures and repairing the broken ones. Her laughter was loud and beautiful, she loved having fun and watching others have fun. Beverly lived life fast and furious and also very calmly and simply.
Beverly truly loved her family and her friends and was very devoted. A special thanks to Linda Gebel, Barry Hastings, and AC Tant for their dedication and help with her unexpected death.
A private memorial will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Animal Hope Foundation, 43 N. Kerr Drive, Roanoke Rapids, NC 27870.
