Beverly L. Zabloudil, 73 of Buena Vista, Co died Aug. 3, 2015 in Pikes Peak Hospice at Penrose, Colorado Springs, Co.  She was born Feb. 3, 1942 in Ord, Ne to Louis and Marie Vancura.  Bev grew up in rural Nebraska.  She married Ray Zabloudil on June 10, 1962 in Ord, Ne.  They moved to Buena Vista in June of 1965 and have called BV home ever since.  From 1965 to 1977, Bev was primarily a homemaker while making several thousand wedding and birthday cakes.  To say that she loved quilting, crocheting and needlework would be an understatement.  Subsequently, in 1977, Bev took her love of sewing and crafts into the marketplace.  She bought out a fabric store, and Bev’s Stitchery was born.  When Bev wasn’t quilting, she would have a crochet hook, knitting needle, or cross-stitch needle in her hand.  She always said, that you should never have time to be bored!   Bev also dedicated many hours over the years with the BV Sportsmen’s Club and the American Legion Auxiliary.  During her “off” hours, she loved to watch cooking shows, and was always hoping they would create a “high-altitude” cooking show.  Bev is survived by her husband Ray Zabloudil, Buena Vista, Co, son Darren (Diana) Zabloudil, Tipton, Iowa, granddaughters Heidi (Adam) Prockish, Rifle, Co, Brianna Moeller, Tipton, Iowa, grandson Drake Zabloudil,  Cedar Rapids, Iowa.  She was preceded in death by daughter Raylene Zabloudil.   Funeral service Friday August 7, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. at Congregational United Church of Christ, with interment in Mount Olivet Cemetery.  Donations may be made to Buena Vista Pregnancy Center or Quilts of Valor in care of Bev's Stitchery Box 1773, Buena Vista, Co  81211.  Arrangements by Runyan Mortuary with online condolences at

Bev will truly be missed. She loved her customers. She was always accommodating to me when I needed quilting supplies while we traveled in our motor home. She has sent me things to several places across the United States. I called her one time and when I said "This is Margaret." Bev said, "Where are you?" I meet Bev when she first moved to Buena Vista. Loved her dearly.

I was saddened to hear of Bev's passing. She was such a wonderful lady, we spent many times talking in the store, when I would pick up fabric for a project. We did a lot of reminiscing about Raylene, it is comforting to know they are together again, but she will be dearly missed. My thoughts and prayers to Ray and the family. May God Bless and comfort you.

We are so sorry to hear of your loss, Beverly was such a sweet, kind and talented lady. We spent a lot of good times together as young Bureau of Reclamation wives. I loved talking to Bev, she always had so many interesting things going on in her life. Our love, prayers and deep felt sympathy to the family.
