Beverly Aronson

November 05, 1941 ‒ April 11, 2020

Delaware, Ohio
Formerly of Waltham, Massachusetts

Beverly Aronson 78, formerly of Waltham, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Saturday morning, April 11. Beverly was the daughter of Bengt and Florence Aronson, and is survived by one sister Marilyn (Marvin) Hintz, who live in Delaware, Ohio. Also surviving are sister-in law Linda Aronoson, and many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by both parents, and a brother (Carl) Allan Aronson.

Beverly’s legacy is that of a teacher who imparted both knowledge and character into the lives of hundreds of students during her teaching career which spanned over fifty years and included teaching missionary children in the Philippines, and later at the Imago School in Manard, MA. Where she taught until retiring. Tributes from faculty and students reflect the fact that Beverly was a no-nonsense teacher, respected by all, and known for her love and dedication to her students. In addition to her formal teaching, Beverly was a student of the Bible and counselor and friend to many who sought her for friendship and wise counsel.

A memorial service will be held in Massachusetts at a later date pending the lifting of the present social distancing restrictions.

  • To all family and friends of Bev: Bev was a participant in our research study here at Mass General Hospital, the Look AHEAD study, for 20 years. She was the perfect research subject — she completed all her data visits and always with enthusiasm and a smile. The study’s objectives are to find out ways to better treat people with type 2 diabetes, especially as they age. Her compassionate spirit, desire to help others, and wanting to make a difference in this world were her qualities that are few and far between these days. God Bless you Bev and thanks for being part of the Look AHEAD Study, Sincerely: Valerie M. Goldman, Program Coordinator

  • Dear Marvin, Marilyn, and family,
    Bev was adamant in her love of the Lord, love of family, and love of her students thus prodding all those that were blessed to know her to do better in their lives.
    Bev opened her house and heart to me many times when Sandy and I were visiting Massachusetts. She loved to play Sequence and other games along with coffee and a little treat. She and I shared the same favorite ice cream flavor from Kimball Farms, raspberry chocolate chip.
    Bev faced challenges head on , and new technology or a brain tumor or diabetes did not daunt her.
    Prayers for peace and comfort knowing she is with Jesus Christ and free from pain.
    Philippians 4:7

  • Dear Miss A and all her family and friends,
    Miss A was my 2nd grade math teacher, and there are fond memories of her coming along the isles as the “Lady with the Big fat stick,” testing us on our multiplication tables. My sister, brother, and I still have the mechanical pencils she gave us, even though this was about 8 years ago. Even though my family hasn’t seen her for many years, I think she is a very strong person, to have gone through such challenges, after giving kindness to many people for years. I now remember the familiar math workbooks, with children sliding on 3 dimensional blocks of math operations, and the discussions my sister and I had about it. She is in Heaven, that is for sure!

  • Bev was well known at the Imago School as Miss A. All three of my children, now teenagers, had been students of Miss A. Bev was a fun and devoted teacher with lots of passion. She will be deeply missed and loved and remembered in our memories. She is often being mentioned among my children. All that she had given to the kids she encountered during her lifetime, will be remembered. Thank you Bev for being such passionate teacher with genuine love for so many young lives you have influenced. We are deeply grieved for your departure, but know that you are with our Lord in peace and rest in His arms with no more suffering.

    Our deepest sympathy to Marvin and Marilyn and all of Bev’s families.

    Ivan, Chinhong, Caroline, Emmanuel and Abigail

  • Dear Miss A, and all her families and friends
    I never had Miss A as a teacher, but I remember when she came in occasionally to test our math facts making them a fun and simple thing to learn. I remember her saying “ Here comes the Lady with the Big Fat stick,” and then “Quack, Quack math facts,” whenever we got it wrong. She was always a cheerful and lively person, bringing cheer to her class even after all she has had to go through. I also remember Miss A for her generosity. For her birthday, she never wanted anything. The only thing she wanted was to give mechanical pencils away to the children and give coffee to the teachers. Though we are sad here on Earth, we know that Miss A is surely in Heaven, and with our Father!
