Orono - Beverly Louise (Brooks) Hallett passed away peacefully at Orono Commons on February 11, 2020, just six days before her 91st birthday. She was born February 17, 1929 in Madison, the daughter of William and Laura (Westcott) Brooks.
When Beverly was two years old the family relocated to Mars Hill, where picking potatoes was a big part of her life. She graduated Salutatorian of the Aroostook Central Institute, Class of 1948, and was the Potato Blossom Queen that year.
She married Herman E. Hallett of Mars Hill after World War II. They lived in Bangor for several years before buying their first and only house in Northern Maine Junction, Hermon, where they lived for over 50 years.
Beverly worked most of her adult life, holding numerous jobs throughout the years, along with caring for her mother and older brother at the end of their lives. She was a caring, happy, personable person who never met a stranger.
In addition to her parents she was predeceased by a half-brother, Richard Fowler, of Augusta.
She is survived by her husband of 68 years, Herman; son, William Hallett and his wife, Jean of Titusville, Florida; daughter, Kimberly Demmons and her husband, Dennis of Bangor; five grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; half-brother, Alva Reed of N. Anson; and a lifelong , dear friend, Eleanor Tweedie of Mars Hill.
Bill and Kim would like to thank the staff at Orono Commons for their wonderful care of their Mom for the last nearly four years. Anyone can tend to ones needs, but their constant compassion, loving touch, and kind words were soothing to the soul.
A graveside service at Evergreen Cemetery, Hermon will be announced in the spring. Condolence to the family may be expressed at

Kim, I am so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was a wonderful loving person whose laugh was infectious and a very big heart full of love. She shepherded me through the Hallett clan when your late cousin Ron took me to Maine from Florida away from home for the first time. She was my hero. My prayers are with you.

My thoughts and prayers are with you guys during this heartbreaking time. It was hard to have Beverley and Hermon move out of there home next door to us but now Beverley has moved on again. She was always so full of life and enjoyed company. She was a great neighbor. I am truly sorry for your loss.

Herman& family: Sorry for your loss. Beverly was someone I looked up to in school. She was 2 or 3years ahead of me. Such a hard worker and really nice person.

My thoughts are with you all! Beverly was just as much a grandmother to me growing up as my actual grandparents were! Many of my childhood memories were of you all.
