Beverly “Bev” Sackett Hallett
Beverly “Bev” Sackett Hallett was born Aug. 28, 1948, at Highland Hospital in Rochester, New York. Her beautiful life ended at the same location on July 24, 2023, at the age of 74, following complications from the cancer she fiercely battled on and off for nearly 12 years. She is survived by her devoted husband of 54 years, Michael; her children, Chad (Amy) and Carrie (Michael Paris); her grandchildren, Fisher, Will and Senna; her brother, Raymond Sackett (Donna); her sister, Sue Kretchmer; and many loving brothers- and sisters-in-law, cousins, and nieces and nephews on both the Sackett and Hallett sides of the family.
     She is predeceased by her parents, Herman and Mildred Sackett of South Lima, N.Y; her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Wilton and Dorothy Hallett of Caledonia, N.Y; and her brother-in-law, Jim Kretchmer of Conesus, N.Y.
     Bev graduated from Livonia Central School and started her career with the Rochester Telephone Company. Bev and Mike were married on June 14, 1969, and built their home on Dutch Hollow Road in Avon, N.Y., where they raised their children and became active members of their community.
     While their kids were young, Bev provided support and assistance to Mike and his trucking business. Later, she returned to working outside of the home and worked for XLM/Hon Industries; Essex Investments; and lastly, Bryant and Stratton, where she was a receptionist/friend of everyone who walked in the door. She retired in 2014, allowing more time for her passions.
     Bev was a devoted gardener, reader, and most importantly, a friend. She was always available for a call or visit, made connections easily and readily with everyone she met, and like her gardens, cherished and nurtured her life-long friendships. She enjoyed Friday-night suppers with her friends and family, as well as breakfast gatherings with the ladies of Dutch Hollow Road and former colleagues.
     A special thank you goes out to all our friends and neighbors who have been behind the scenes supporting the family. Additionally, we are extremely thankful to the medical teams that provided her with care and support during her nearly 12-year cancer battle: Dr. Balaji and the Avon Medical Group, UR Gynecologic Oncology (Lattimore), the Highland Hospital Infusion Center; and the staff at 5 East of Highland Hospital.
     A celebration of Bev’s beautiful life will take place on Friday, Aug. 4 at 11 a.m. at First Presbyterian Church of East Avon, 5605 East Avon-Lima Road, Avon, N.Y., with a reception following at Willow Creek, 3100 Rochester Rd., Lakeville, N.Y.
