It is with a heavy heart that I bid farewell to a dear soul who has left a lasting impact on this world. A life well-lived, full of vibrant colors and an infectious energy, has come to a peaceful end. Today, we remember and celebrate the life of a woman who lived life to the fullest - me, Beverly Rose Sala, an inspiring woman from Belmar, NJ.
I will always hold a special place in my heart for the Jersey shore and the boardwalk that I frequented as a child. With its lively atmosphere and the sound of crashing waves in the background it was home. The ocean was my sanctuary, my escape from the world, and it shaped me into the person that I am today. The peace and joy that it brought me was unparalleled, and I treasured every moment spent there.
My greatest pride was my children, Steven, Russel and Jeffrey, whom I adored more than anything in this world. Watching them grow into the men that they are today was the most rewarding experience of my life, and I am eternally grateful to have been their mother. They were my greatest accomplishment, and I am filled with immense love and pride for the amazing people that they have become.
My husband, Tony Sala, was the center of my universe. He was my rock, my support system, and my soulmate. Our love was unbreakable, and I cherished every moment spent with him. He brought me immense joy and comfort, and I will always be grateful for the time we spent together. I am grateful for my Sala family, Leslie, Lauren, Justin and Tony’s sisters, Nicki, Lisa (deceased), Shelley and Sabrina.
I am grateful for my daughters-in-law, Stephanie, Beth and Pam, who are strong, independent caring women and the perfect matches for my boys. My grandchildren brought so much light into my life. Their laughter and joy filled my heart, and I cherished every moment spent with them. Sydney (Bernardo), Emily, Hannah, Gillian, Jack, Jake, Vivi, Nick, Tessa, Evan, and Chase. They were my family, and I loved them more than words can express.
My career was important to me, and it gave me an opportunity to exercise my competitive drive. I was fortunate to become a successful entrepreneur in real estate development in the Fredericksburg, VA area and was honored to receive several awards for excellence. My drive, passion, and hard work paid off, and I am proud of the meaningful impact I made in the +40 years in the industry. I am grateful for the opportunities that I was given, and I am proud of the work that I accomplished.
I had so many special friends, and they meant the world to me. Each friendship throughout my life was impactful, particularly within the Cipriana community in Myrtle Beach. These individuals brought immense joy, love, and laughter into my life, and I will always cherish the memories we shared.
A Memorial Mass will be held 11:00 AM, Thursday, March 23, 2023 at McMillan-Small Funeral Home. The Memorial Mass will be live streamed through McMillan-Small Funeral Home's YouTube Channel (scroll down to the service information to select the direct link for the live stream).
So, my dearest family and friends, this is where I leave you. I would like to say that my life was full of love, laughter, and happiness. I am grateful for the people who touched my life, and I hope that they can find comfort in the memories we shared. Every day I had the same goal which was to bring happiness to each person I met and to make the lives of the people around me better. What I ask is that you be in the moment and make someone’s day brighter and better. In lieu of flowers, please contribute to the Saint Andrews renovation project.
