Beverlee J. Longstreet, retired psychologist, passed away peacefully on May 10 at her home in Portland, Oregon, from complications of pulmonary fibrosis. A long-time resident of Santa Monica, California, Beverlee married David W. Longstreet in 1968 and had one child, a son who survived only a few days. In 1976 she was awarded a Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Southern California and opened her own practice soon after. She was an avid tennis player and active member of the Santa Monica Tennis Club, hitting the courts nearly every day for some 30 years. Due to David's failing health, Beverlee made the difficult decision to retire from practice in 2008 and relocate to Oregon where he had family. She was widowed two years later, after 42 years of marriage, and chose to remain in Portland with the stepfamily who loved her as if she were their own. In her last weeks she received daily phone calls and visitors from friends and family who surrounded her in love and gratitude.

Beverlee is survived by her brother, Harry Johnson, three stepchildren--Leslie, Lee, and David--as well as five grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, and many loving friends. She will be remembered and missed for the joy in her smile, her quick wit, boundless curiosity, love of children, and absolute belief that every person deserves to become their best self.

At her own request, no service will be held. If you would like to make a charitable donation in Beverlee's name, the family has provided links to two organizations that provided a great deal of help and comfort to her in her final months.
