Flaherty, Beverly Ann "Bev" Age 89, Passed on January 23, 2023. Preceded in death by loving husband of 56 years, Patrick, son David, parents Glen & Tebby Reinhardt, brother Bucky Reinhardt, and brother- in-law Richard Flaherty. Survived by sister Judie Hoel (Tom), sisters-in-law Alice Flaherty and Janette Reinhardt; children Pady Flaherty-Regnier (Dennis), Terri Flaherty Johnson (Jeffrey), Daniel Flaherty (Lynn); 11 grandchildren, 30 great-grandchildren, many nieces, nephews, and a circle of close friends. Bev grew up in St. Paul and graduated Wilson High School. She met Patrick, the love of her life, at age 15. She dropped her glove at a hockey game, and Patrick - from rival Murray High School - rushed to pick it up knocking people over. She was a nurse supporting Patrick as he completed law school. After Pat started his law practice, they settled in Roseville raising four children. Pat relied on her sound judgement. Bev was Chair of the Board of Flaherty's Arden Bowling Center, in Arden Hills, a 4th generation family business. Bev was a gracious hostess, great cook, and true friend to all. Her kindnesses and generosity are legendary. The Flaherty family were long-time parishioners of Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Roseville. Bev was an enthusiastic volunteer. Bev loved the St. Paul St. Patrick's Day Parade. She didn't have an ounce of Irish blood; Patrick, the Irishman, never joined the parade. He got a kick out of her outlandish costumes. She was a boisterous Vikings fan. (Pat slept through games-football - bad for the bowling business.) Bev and Pat's home was a place of happiness and faith. The extended Flaherty, Reinhardt, and Radecki families celebrated many holidays and life events at the Flaherty household. She loved spending time with her grand and great grand kids. There were struggles, yet they overcame it all. Bev was a great mom. She led by example with love, kindness, charity, and forgiveness. Bev and Pat loved to travel, especially with their family. They saw the world. Pat called Bev his "Princess", saying the best decision he ever made was marrying Bev. Bev's life's will be celebrated Tuesday, January 31st, 2023. Visitation from 9:30am - 11:00am, followed by a funeral Mass at 11:00am at Corpus Christi Catholic Church, 2131 Fairview Avenue North, Roseville, MN 55113. 651-639-8888.
