Beverly "Bev" Dalrymple-Zollinger, 65, of Fort Wayne passed away January 4, 2022 at Hospice Home Fort Wayne. Beverly was born August 3, 1956 in Huntington, IN, a daughter of the late Alberta and Robert Hosier. 

Bev began her career in nursing at Huntington Memorial Hospital in the Labor and Delivery Department where she helped bring babies into the world. She spent many years at Miller's Merry Manor and Victory Noll Sisters, OLVM in Huntington where she helped preserve the dignity of the residential sisters who were ill, aging, and nearing the end of life. She also worked in various rehab settings helping people with disabilities, chronic illness, and addiction. She ended her nearly 35 year career in nursing working for Lutheran Hospital of Indiana on the Medical Surgical 3 Floor. When her career in nursing was over she continued to devote her time to others by volunteering at Visiting Nurse Hospice Home of Ft Wayne where everyone knew her as a smiling face. She was a member of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church where she was involved with bible study. 

In her spare time she enjoyed painting, art, gardening and was a bird and animal lover, specifically her dogs. She loved spending time with her grandchildren and making memories with her family.
