Beverly Renee Kruger-Rader, 28, was born on June 11, 1993 and passed away on May 25, 2022 in Uehling, NE. Beverly was born to Vince and Marie Kruger in Fremont, NE.

Beverly is survived by husband Josh, parents Vince and Marie, brothers and their spouses Adam and Melissa, TJ and Destiny, Clay and Abby, grandmothers - grandma Sherry, grandma Minnie and grandma Hoover, many nieces and nephews, and numerous aunts and uncles. She was preceded in death by grandfathers - grandpa Hoover, grandpa Sarge, grandpa Kruger and grandpa Clyde.

She came out with frosted hair like she'd been to the beauty shop. At four days old, she was taken to Denver, CO for her first heart surgery. At 4 months old, she had her second heart surgery at Children's Hospital in Omaha and the doctors told her family not to get their hopes up, that she was not expected to make it past the 1st grade. Beverly did not agree with that. Beverly's first word was eeeeat-a and she loved to eat. During the next few years, she had numerous hospitalizations for respiratory and heart related issues. Right before turning 2, she had an 8-week hospital stay with 3 viruses, 2 bacteria, 1 fungus, liver failure and was on the liver transplant list. This is where they knew they were not in control, God is. She completely turned around and was brought home as a 2-year-old newborn. She had to completely learn everything all over, how to walk, how to talk, everything. Over the years, she endured numerous hospitalizations.

She graduated in 2012 from Logan View High School and was voted Athlete of the Year during her senior year. She volunteered at the Logan View Schools for her school to career program. Beverly worked at Scoreboard Café in Uehling and spent a lot of her free time watching her nieces and nephews.

She went to Nashville in 2016, where she did the ACM music camp. Her group was able to write a song and sing it with Rascall Flatts at the Grand Olde Opry. She met numerous country singers while there.

Beverly met her husband, Josh, in August 2016 at Sterling Lake in Sterling, KS while attending a family reunion. He was camping in the campground. She and Josh were married on May 1, 2021. Marie took them on their honeymoon in Turner Falls, OK. For their 1st anniversary, Marie took them around Salina, KS. She loved Josh with all her heart.

Beverly had many loves in her life. She loved her phone. She loved Facebook, it was her information highway to keep in touch with everybody. She loved her family and she loved her friends. She wanted to make everyone happy and succeeded in doing so. She loved meeting new people. Nobody was a stranger for long. She loved Jesus and would go to any church that she could find. Beverly was a prayer warrior and loved to pray for anyone. She loved music. She genuinely listened to the music and the lyrics. She loved to laugh (and snort). She loved going on adventures to unknown destinations with her mom. She loved to be with her dad, it didn't matter where they were or what they were doing. She loved to go on motorcycle rides (but couldn't play music or she'd dance right off the bike). She loved to have fun and she loved to dance.

She did not love to drive. Clay tried to teach her and she hit the garage, but she missed the trees. Beverly knew the right time to call, whether you were too busy to talk or needed to talk to someone. She smiled all the time and taught everyone she met. There will never be anyone with a bigger heart or bigger smile. Beverly was an angel and will be greatly missed.

Visitation and Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, May 28, 2022 from 3pm-6pm at the Uehling Auditorium at 224 3RD St, Uehling, NE.

Ludvigsen's Hooper Funeral Chapel in charge or arrangements.

    Marie, Josh , Vinnie & family,
    Words cannot convey the empathy I feel for y’all. Prayers & hugs to everyone. We all have been BLESSED to have known Bevie . If no one believes there are angels on earth, they never met Bevie! May all your great memories, love & road trips fill your fractured heart with the Lord’s comfort. Know that she is busy socializing with all of Heaven’s citizens.💜💜 I’m so sorry I couldn’t come to the visitation- I just had neck surgery Thursday or I’d be there
    Love you Marie! Chrissi

    I was so sadden to hear of Beverly passing. She truly was a beautiful person. We loved her so much with her many visits to Peds at the hospital. Loved how she would call out for help to "MARY" and not use her call button. And those eyes were unforgettable.
    My sympathies to all of you!

    I knew Bev through Dori Prebble and her family. What a delightful young lady she was. Bev always had a smile on her face and hug for everyone. And had a love for Jesus. Rest in Peace sweet girl. You are whole and running free. Spread your smile and sing with the angels on High.
