Beverly B. Irick

August 31, 1938 — October 12, 2020

ALBURGH – Beverly Boyce Irick, died peacefully at home surrounded by her loving family on Monday, October 12, 2020 at the age of 82.

She was born in Burlington on August 31, 1938 to the late Parnell & Ruth (Searles) Boyce.

Bev was the greatest mother of all time. She lived for her family, especially her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She married James “Bubby” Irick on October 7, 1955 and the couple raised eight children together. Bev and her family were well known for owning and operating Kay’s Restaurant for over 30 years in the heart of Alburgh. Bev also worked as a switchboard operator and hot lunch cook in Alburgh.

She rooted for the underdog in sports, and in life. This explains why she was an avid Red Sox fan, and why she would do anything to help someone in need. If your car broke down, if you needed a meal, or if you needed a loan during hard times, Bev was always there to help.

She is survived by her children, Penny Russell and her significant other, Bruce, Candy (Mark) Langlois, Janie Letourneau, Luann (Billy) Beyor, Dennis (Julie) Irick, Dina (Gary) Dragoon, Heidi (Jamie) Gotshall, and Kerri (Tony) Churchill; 11 grandchildren; 10 great grandchildren; and several nieces & nephews. Besides her parents, Bev was predeceased by her husband James “Bubby” Irick on January 19, 2020, a great grandson, Quinten Letourneau; her brother, Brian Boyce; and an infant sister, Debbie Boyce.

Family and friends are invited to Bev’s Life Celebration on Wednesday, October 14, 2020 at 1:00 PM at the Alburgh Center Cemetery, Center Cemetery Road, Alburgh, VT. Due to COVID-19 there will be no reception to follow.
