Beverly Bumbaugh

Beverly A. (Keplinger) Bumbaugh was born in Hagerstown, Maryland in 1936. She graduated in 1958 from Wilmington College, Wilmington, Ohio. She studied for the Unitarian Universalist parish ministry under an Independent Studies program in the 1970s, then served her first 7 years in the ministry as co-minister with her husband, David Bumbaugh, in Alexandria, Virginia (1977-84). Subsequently she served congregations in Mentor, Ohio (1986-87); Pamona, New York(1987-91); Bethlehem, Pennsylvania (1992-93); and Freeport, New York (1993-95). She earned Interim Ministry accreditation but her last three years in active ministry were spent again as co-minister with David, in Summit, New Jersey. A bout with breast cancer made early retirement necessary in 1998. In recent years Beverly has preached occasionally, in tandem with David, and has served as occasional adjunct professor at Meadville/Lombard Theological School.

The Bumbaughs were married in 1956. They have 4 children: Mark, 1961; Geoffrey, 1965; Stephen, 1966; and Julia, 1967.
