OCI remembers one of their
own, Bev Wilson (1942-2009)
                                            Bev’s big love. She kept in touch with
                                            all aspects from, registering contes-
                                            tants, keeping in touch with them, call-

                                            forms, giving out information, to signing
                                            them in at the fair.
                                            	 Bev’s husband, Gordon Wilson, said
                                            that Bev loved all of the contestants; she
                                            thought the world of all of the people [at
                                            OCI] that she worked with. He said Bev
                                            thought “Everyone worked their hearts
                                            out and always put on a good show.”
                                            She looked forward to Lumberjack Days
                                            and the Clearwater County Fair every
                                            year. She even worked on it when she                  HELGESON PLACE HOTEL SUITES

                                               Bev was also a supporter of Clear-
