Her Legacy… Beverly Ann Berczel, 83, passed away January 12, 2022.  She was born on February 24, 1938, in Wyandotte, Michigan to Edwin Sword and Ethel (Machinsky) Sword. Beverly married the love of her life, John Berczel, on April 3, 1958, in Detroit, Michigan. Beverly doted on her loving husband, and together they raised six children. She was a strong, determined woman. She had a genuine love for cooking and baking, and she was never afraid to try a new recipe. One of her greatest joys was bringing her family together around the table.
