Beverly Ann Schofield Brown, 48, of Newton Falls passed away Thursday, October 14 after a long and courageous battle with breast cancer. She fought cancer with fierce determination. The same way she lived her life: with uncomplaining strength and courage combined with joy and laughter and love of family. Bev’s greatest joy was being a mother to Joe, 28 and Evan 5.
Throughout 350 doctor appointments, countless rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, multiple surgeries, and unrelenting bad news, she never once complained. Her husband, Scott, was by her side on all her doctor visits. Over the course of her illness she read Evan 4,000 books, continued to organize trips and family parties, and made sure Joe was prepared for life without her.
Bev was born on September 11, 1973 in Warren, Ohio to Mary Cole Campbell and Frank Schofield, the second daughter in a family that would grow to include four more brothers. Beverly and her sister, Tami, shared a lifelong love of country music, and travel. They often traveled with their mother, Mary, to see their favorite country stars, Reba McEntire and Barbara Mandrell. Even as a young girl, Bev had a special affection for children and made her younger brothers, and later her sons and nephews, feel special and loved.
Bev is survived by her husband, Scott Brown, and sons Joseph Muscardelli, Jr. and Evan Brown; her father Frank Schofield; step-father Rick Hartley, sister, Tami Newberry; brothers Rodney Schofield, Kevin Schofield, Justin Hartley (Krystal) and Chris Hartley (Kelly); her parents-in-law, Ron and Margie Brown; brothers-in-law Eric Brown (Nicole), and Kevin Brown (Robi). She is also survived by many nieces and nephews, Trevor, Mikey, Nathan, and Alexa Newberry, Kenneth and Frederick Harley, Nicholas, Justyn, Derek, Andrew, Ty, Jake and Karlie Brown. She also leaves behind countless cousins, aunts and uncles, as well as dear friends Beverly loved as family. She was preceded in death by her mother, Mary Cole Campbell and by former fiancee, Joseph Muscardelli, Sr. who died in 1992.
Bev’s family wishes to thank Dr. El Amil and the rest of the staff at the Mercy Cancer Center for all the care and love they showed to Bev and her family throughout Bev’s fight with cancer. If you wish to make a donation to a breast cancer support organization, you can send donations in Bev’s name to the Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Cancer Center in Youngstown, Ohio.
