Beverly Hannon is turning 90!

March 30, 1932, Beverly was born to John and Kathryn Hahesy of Manchester. When her father died, Bev looked after her younger brothers and worked to help her mother support the family.

Unable to go to college then, she hitchhiked across Europe in 1961, earning degrees from Kirkwood/ UI in 1982/ 1990. Her challenging youth made her determined to create a loving and

stable home for Dave and their six children, all inspired by her slides of Europe, passion for the

environment, health food (some were more inspired by carob than others) and burgeoning feminism. Eight years as an Iowa state senator, she's remained active volunteering, painting, pursuing her

genealogy in Ireland, and in a writers' group at 89!
