Twila was a member of the Sherrodsville Wesleyan Church. She never married, was a private but loving soul, dedicated to family and very proud of her family. Loved animals, gardening, flowers and the country life. Although Twila was only five feet tall, she had an amazing store of energy. She would rise early care for her pets, then care for our horses, cattle, goats often even taking the dog for a walk. She had love for books and was an avid reader. One independent little lady. Survived by her sisters, Millie Hann and Mary Kirsch of Canton and several nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. Preceded in death by her parents, Roland and Hazel Bevington and brother, George Bevington.

Dear Millie,

We are so sorry for your loss.  May God bless you, Mary,  and the whole family at this time.

Twila was my bank manager 30 years ago when I worked as a teller. She was a wonderful boss and an excellent banking professional. A class act. She left me with a few wise pieces of advice that continue to help me. Thanks Twila! 

I was very saddened to hear the news about Twila.   She was a 5ft 'ball of fire' at times.   We would occasionally meet downtown for lunch in the 70s.   She was family oriented and 'mama' to many fur-babies.  You will be missed "Aunt Twila".   Perhaps in the future, we will be able to have lunch together in a 'heavenly' light!   


Ms. Bevington was an amazing lady. We so enjoyed seeing this very petite woman next to the St. Bernard she faithfully combed and brushed daily. That dog could have made a snack of Ms. Bevington but he listened to every word she said. Ms. Bevington also did beautiful counted crossstitch work.. Every year, for Christmas, she made us a Christmams stocking ornament for our tree. We will treasure these always and the memories of her patience, insightfulness, and compassion she had for us on our paper route. God bless Ms. Bevington and very forturnate family.
