Bev loved music and they could be found at Polka dances as close as Watertown and as far as Minnesota.  Bev was a huge Brewers fan and liked UW Badgers Basketball too.  She also liked playing cards and enjoyed cleaning.  Her best joys were found in her grandchildren, spending so much time with them when they were younger.  Bev was always at all of their school and church events.  Beverly was an excellent cook and baker, making many Kranz Kuchen’s and her special pretzels for family and friends.

Bev’s faith was strong.  The Holy Spirit brought Bev into the family through her Holy Baptism on July 25, 1940.  Bev confessed faith in her Lord Jesus publicly, after instruction, in God’s work at her confirmation on April 11, 1954.  Bev also attended Immanuel Lutheran School through 8th grade before attending Watertown High School.  She enjoyed teaching Sunday school and Confirmation classes in her younger years.

Beverly is survived by:  her husband Robert Sell; children Becki Sell and Bridget (Brian) Krueger; siblings Valerie (Mike) Lessner and Daryl (Joanne) Schuett; grandchildren Makayla (Wade) Keene and Domonic Krueger; one great-grandson on the way; aunt Irene Schuett; brother-in-law Everett (Kathy) Werth; godchildren Nancy Strauss, Kevin (Jill) Grulke, and Tim (Chelie) Pieper; and relatives Carol Krause, Allen (Shirley) Sell, Romelle Slade, and Herbert (Joyce) Grulke. Bev is also survived by a number of nieces, nephews, other relatives, and many friends.
