President Mark Gearan had an editorial published in the Oct. 21 Finger Lakes Times titled “Anania was a 'can-do' person,” remarking on the late Beverly Anania's dedication to her hometown, Geneva.
“Beverly Anania served this community well and we are all better off for her enthusiastic commitment to making a real difference in the lives of real people,” said Gearan. “I believe our community can honor her memory with the kind of active civic engagement and commitment to service that made Beverly Anania such an extraordinary person. We will all miss her.”
Anania, who was also a president of Geneva Scholarship Associates, died Oct. 17 at home after a year-long battle with cancer. She was 66. A eulogy to her was in the Sunday, Oct. 19, issue of the Finger Lakes Times, titled Genevan gave her all to community.”
