Reverend Beverly Ann Bomberger Frank, 65, of Youngwood, died peacefully in her home on December 28th, 2019, having been surrounded by her loving family in recent times. She was born November 10th, 1954 in Lebanon, Pennsylvania to her parents, the late Lucille and Eugene Bomberger.
Beverly courageously battled cancer for nearly five years, all while remaining positive, hopeful, joyous, and faithful. As later became her motto, she "took the bull by the horns" while facing the worst kind of adversity. Like one of her favorite Bible verses says, she "fought the good fight, [she has] finished the race, [she has] kept the faith" (2 Timothy 4:7). Although Beverly never sought to be seen in this way, she was undoubtedly an inspiration to nearly everyone who knew her. She was the beloved pastor of Emanuel Baptist Church in Donora, PA for 13 years.
Beverly is survived by her loving husband of nearly 45 years, Robert J Frank; daughters Rebekah Alvino (Richard) and Rev. Rachel Frank (Thomas); siblings Donald Bomberger (June), Fred Bomberger (Judy), and Beth Lerch (Todd); and several nieces and nephews.
Family and friends will be received for a Memorial Visitation on Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Emanuel Baptist Church, 137 Castner Ave, Donora, PA 15033, where a Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, January 4th at 11 a.m.
Beverly's family would like to express their sincere appreciation to Suncrest Hospice for their care in her final days, as well as to all those who provided support through meals, prayers, donations, and visits.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions to the American Cancer Society.
