Bev passed away at St. Joseph Hospital Sunday, May 19 following long illness which limited her mobility.

Said her son, Alan, "I know that she very much missed writing her column for the Eye since she had become more restricted in her activities following her surgery a few years ago, so as to not be able to bounce around town the way she had been to report on all the eclectic happenings in Arcata."

"Beverly Hale reliably grounded and groundtruthed the Arcata Eye and Union, offering fascinating and unique details about Arcata, its people, animals, environment and social conditions – things that no one else saw and that we wouldn't have known about otherwise," said Eye Editor Kevin Hoover. "We love Bev, and miss her fearlessness and insights."

An obituary is forthcoming.
