Beverly Oellig was born in Rochelle, Ill., on Wedn., Sept. 28, 1932, the daughter of Ray A. Oellig and Lucy E. (Drummond) Oellig.

The daughter of a produce farmer, she helped in selling asparagus in 10-pound bundles to local individuals. The family recalled that she spent her first earnings on a Shirley Temple doll.

She married Walter C. "Bud" Bintzler in Aurora, Ill., in September 24, 1965. The family moved to Riverton in 1975.

Mrs. Bintzler was a member of St. John Lutheran Church. Each evening Bud and friends joined with Bev in prayer reciting the Lords Prayer and 23rd Psalm.

Her family said she played the organ, especially enjoyed the Wurlitzer, played bingo and cribbage, enjoyed reading, collected rhinestone jewelry, coins, and stamps, enjoyed crossword puzzles, collected cobalt blue glass and antiques, and loved her cats, family, and friends.

Cribbage was a sport in the Bintzler household. Those fortunate enough to play a game with Bev became a student. Bev will be remember as using the “Bintzler Shuffle” and showing no mercy during games. If Bev was ever beat in cribbage you would mark it on your calendar.

She had been a switchboard operator for the telephone company and her family said she "loved working the big board."
