We sorrowfully announce the passing of Carol Marie (Reck) Beager, 74, of Ely, Nevada. She faded away in the comfort of her Mesquite home on December 29, 2021, surrounded by her family.
Carol was born on December 3, 1947 in Ely, Nevada to James N. Reck and Helen (Pastorino) Reck. She graduated White Pine High School in 1965 and shortly thereafter married William “Bill” Beager. Their first daughter, Lisa (Myers) was born in 1966, followed by Monica (Corbin) in 1971, and Angela (Petersen) in 1976.
In their early years, Carol enjoyed her time as a Navy wife as Bill was enlisted in the Navy and was stationed in Alameda, California and Kingsville, Texas for a short period of time. They returned to Ely, Nevada and have made their home there, enjoying an amazing 56 years with each other. While there, Carol was employed at the State of Nevada Employment Security office from where she eventually retired.
Carol’s passions were her family and travel. Carol had a variety of talents. In her youth, she played piano for the Methodist Church and was a member of the White Pine High School Marching Band. She enjoyed just about all crafts and most recently kept busy making cards. As a fourth generation White Pine County resident, Carol took pride in her community. She put her heart and soul into it through volunteering and her membership in various groups. She enjoyed her involvement with the White Pine Public Museum; was a long-time member of Beta Sigma Phi and a current member of PEO (Philanthropic Educational Organization). Carol enjoyed a variety of activities and whether it was a meal, a craft project, or a presentation for display, she had the ability to always make things better, easier, or more enjoyable. She was always friendly and touched the hearts of many people. She was loved and will be missed by her family and many others far outside of her White Pine home.
Carol is survived by her husband, Bill; daughters Lisa Myers (Tim); Monica Corbin; Angela Petersen (Tye); brothers Terry James Reck (Sue); Randy Angelo Reck; sister-in-law Janice (Beager) Jones; five grandchildren: William Keith Stewart; Jacob Lee Stark; Jeremiah Patrick Corbin; Tyler James Petersen; Travis Sean Petersen; and two great-grandchildren: Kristyn Rae Stark and Nash William Stark.
