Beverly AKA Sam was born December 29, 1962, in Elizabeth, N.J., to Marvin Rudolph Jones and Geraldine Engram Jones. She grew up in Linden, New Jersey. Sam attended the Linden public schools. Graduating from Linden High School.

Sam attended The Technical Training Program in Newark, N.J. When she completed the course, she was hired as Lab Tech at Sandoz which later merged with Novartis where she was promoted to Scientist 1 working in diabetes research for over twenty years.

She later became a member of First Maplewood Baptist Church in Maplewood, N.J. Sam was avid member of the church’s Food Pantry and the Hospitality Committee.

Sam was a very organized person; everything had a place and if you moved anything she knew it. She loved children especially her son Carlton who she named after her brother and she loved to cook, everyone loved her baked ziti. One time she tried a new recipe for Thanksgiving it was called a Sweet Potato Casserole one of the ingredients was a white turnip. It didn’t go over well at all. By the way it was a Martha Stewart recipe.

Sam enjoyed music, Prince was one of her favorite singers and she was the family photographer. We decide to do a booklet for our family reunion with all of the family members names in it, so Sam created an EXCEL spread sheet containing our Daniels Family Tree.
