Beverly was born Monday, April 19, 1937, in Davison, Michigan, the daughter of Clarence Dunn and Mildred McKnight Dunn. She worked for 20 years for The Pepi Companies. She was known as Grammar to everyone. Beverly loved family, Sunday “family” dinners- everyone welcome, and attending her grandchildren’s sporting events. She was famous for never forgetting to send out cards. She was a member of First Baptist Church of Bainbridge, Chancel Choir, and Handbells, and was an active member of her Sunday School class. Beverly loved reading, puzzles, and the Atlanta Braves. If you knew her, you probably heard her say, “Don’t sweat the small stuff and everything is small stuff.”

Survivors include her children, Patti Robinson (Bob) of Universal City, Texas, Gerri Tinetti (Brian) of Aurora, Colo., James R. Pemberton, IV (Leann) of Bainbridge, Ga., Vic Pemberton (Lorie) of Panama City Beach, Fla., and Brad Pemberton (Callie) of Winterville, Ga.; 18 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; and many people that loved her as family.

Beverly was preceded in death by her husband, James Rex Pemberton III; her parents; siblings, Robert and Richard Dunn.
