Beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother found peace on January 1st, 2024. Born in South Milwaukee August 23, 1930 to the late Alex and Anna Behr. Preceded in death by her husband of 49 years, Bruce Rayeske. Bev was a devoted mother to Russell (MaryKay), Kenneth (Susan) and Richard. Extremely proud grandmother of Jessica (Dan) Falque, Melissa (James) Seehausen, Michelle (the late Tyler) Jeske, Ryan and Jenni (Zack Ramel). Loving great grandmother to Rachel, Abby, Ethan, Nicholas, Brady, Alayna, Ava, Killian and Emma. Bev was preceded in death by brothers Alex Behr, Maurice Behr, Donald Behr and sister Ida Slomski. She is survived by brother James (Nancy) Behr, and sister-in-laws Dorothy Rayeske and Dolly Behr. Bev was loved by many more neices, nephews, relatives and friends. Bev also adored Michelle's close friend Martin Leshke.
Bev worked for many years as a kindergarten teacher, starting at Scanlon School in Oak Creek and later at Parkway and E.W. Luther Schools in South Milwaukee. She loved working with the young children and would get a special sense of pride when they would recognize her as adults. She was an avid bingo player and enjoyed her many nights playing the game with Aunt Dorothy. Bev was always baking goodies for the family and everyone knew where her cookie tin was. There was an open-door policy and she especially enjoyed visits from the grandchildren and their children.
