Beverly Rees

Beverly Rees, age 91, a longtime Wilmington resident, formerly of Stoneham, died Monday, November 21 at her residence.

Born in Winchester on August 12, 1931 she was the daughter of the late Harold and Phyllis (Potter) Huebner.

Beverly was raised in Stoneham and was a graduate of Stoneham High School, Class of 1949. She met her high school sweetheart, John F. Rees, and shortly after graduating the two were married and settled in Wilmington to raise their family. Beverly loved to keep active and go dancing; and together with her husband the two would go line dancing at local halls, a tradition she continued to enjoy at the Wilmington senior center. She was also extraordinarily creative in any way that could be expressed, either through painting, sewing, or crafting with her grandkids; she was the ultimate artist. She was even talented enough to make her daughter's wedding dress. Beverly will be remembered for the love she gave her family, her fabulous sense of humor, her excellent cooking and for being "the sassiest grandmother."

She was the beloved wife of John F. Rees, with whom she shared 72 years of marriage. She was the loving mother of Robin Rees Tyrie of Wilmington and Thomas James Rees and his wife Ann of Tampa, FL. She was the "Mammie/Shammie" to Serena Tyrie of Wilmington and Sara Rees and Rachel Rees of Tampa, FL. She was the sister of the late Russell Huebner. She was the aunt of Paul Huebner, Jill Kehoe, Kim McNeil, and the late Todd Huebner. She is also survived by several great nieces and nephews.

Her Funeral Service will be held in the McDonald-Finnegan Funeral Home, 322 Main St., Stoneham on Tuesday, November 29 at 11am. Visitation for relatives and friends will be held prior to the service from 9:30am-11am. Interment to follow at Lindenwood Cemetery, Stoneham. Per the family's request, masks are preferred at all services.

The family wishes to thank the staff from All Care Hospice for their outstanding care for Beverly.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to All Care VNA & Hospice, c/o Development Office, 210 Market Street, Lynn, MA 01901.
