Beverly "Bev" (Suveges) Zickefoose

November 9, 1948 — May 17, 2024


Beverly “Bev” J. (Suveges) Zickefoose passed away on Friday, May 17th, 2024, at Thomas P. Perciak Family Residential Hospice in Strongsville, Ohio after an extended period of health complications.

Beverly was born November 9th, 1948, to William Z. Suveges and Elizabeth “Betty” (nee Palur) Suveges in Parma, Ohio.  She was the dearest wife to Clyde Zickefoose who loved and adored her for more than 30 years.  Beverly absolutely loved being a mother to her 3 children, Demitrios “Jim” Tsakalos (Heidi), Christopher Tsakalos and Lori (Mark) Wilson.  In addition to being a mother, she was also a grandmother to six: Luke, Austin, Josh, Nick, Crystal, Jacob, and Elaina.

Bev was a hard worker who graduated from Parma Senior High School in 1967, took classes at Cuyahoga Community College, worked as a seamstress, worked in activities for independent, assisted & skilled nursing facilities and later retired from Pleasantview Care Center in Parma, OH as the Activities Director for over 20 years.  She absolutely loved working with the residents and being able to brighten their day.

Bev was deeply religious, loved spending time with family and friends and enjoyed nature.  Her husband Clyde spent a lot of his time in retirement doing all that he could to satisfy her hopes and dreams including perfecting their outdoor space with plenty of beautiful flowers and greenery for them both to enjoy.  Bev loved spending time with her daughter Lori, her son Jim (who was her rock), her grandchildren and her nieces Beth, Sharon, and Tammi, who were all incredibly supportive throughout Bev’s life.  When Bev began the next chapter of her life in her new apartment, she gained the support of her best friends Elaine, Cheryl, Pam, Paul, and her aide Crystal.  

Bev was a creative soul who had many outlets including home and floral design, sewing, fashion, finding inspiration through HGTV, cooking, baking, putting together puzzles, reading, playing games and crafting.  She had a love for angels, anything “glitzy" and anything to do with Paris.  She loved shopping, especially when thrifting.  “The thrill of the hunt.”  She was nostalgic and always so festive during holidays.

Bev is now free from her ailments and will be able to join Our Lord Almighty, Jesus Christ in Heaven.  Her previously departed loved ones such as her parents; her husband, Clyde; her son, Christopher Tsakalos; her brother, William P. “Billy” Suveges; her sister, Marilyn Suveges (previously Arena); her son-in-law, Mark Wilson; and many others will be waiting to welcome her with open arms.

She will always be greatly loved and profoundly missed by her remaining family and friends still left on this Earth.  All who know she will be watching and helping guide their every move.

 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
