Beverly Ann Lincoln
Beverly Ann Lincoln, 83, of Lake Placid, passed away on Sept. 26, 2023, in Lake Placid.
Born on Feb. 21, 1940, in Saranac Lake, she was the daughter of Roy and Bertha Stringham.
Beverly grew up in Saranac Lake and graduated from Saranac Lake Central School in 1957. She had a fulfilling career as a secretary. Beverly worked for the Lake Placid Olympic Organizing Committee during the 1980 Olympic Winter Games and later retired from the state Department of Environmental Conservation in her 60s. She continued to work part time for Lake Placid Beautification.
Beverly loved camping and spending time outdoors, often taking her beloved dog Sunshine for walks. She had a passion for reading and playing word games and especially loved beating her kids at rummy. Above all, she cherished her children and grandchildren, frequently taking them camping and attending their sporting events. Her sense of humor, with a sharp bite, brought joy to those around her until the very end.
