Written by Administrator

Beverly Ellis WebIt is with deepest regret that we announce the recent passing of one of our most dedicated workers and team member. On the morning of Sunday, June 28 at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center, Beverly Ellis peacefully passed away, after a long illness, at the age of 54.

“Aunt Bev,” as she was affectionately called by the youth she served and guided, enjoyed a lengthy career with Aon Insurance Corporation in Baltimore. She also worked for a time at the Baltimore City Bureau of Parks and Recreation’s Webster-Kendricks Recreation Center. She then transferred to the Youth and Adults Sports Program as a Gym Leader, managing youth and adult basketball leagues, tournaments and clinics.

Beverly was an outstanding Maryland AAU Volunteer for over 16 years, having served as an AAU Sports Commissioner for the Boys Basketball Program, and she was also a valued team member on our Annual Banquet Committee. “Beverly never hesitated to serve and was happy to do so,” said Antoinette DuBose, Maryland District 2nd Lieutenant Governor. “She was a true trooper.”
