Beverly Elaine McKenzie

Aug 20, 1950 - Feb 06, 2024

location-icon

New York City, NY

Beverly Elaine McKenzie was born August 20, 1950 in Clarendon, Jamaica W.I. AEer compleGng her studies at Ardenne High School and her nursing degree at The University of the West Indies, she moved to Toronto, Canada. From there she moved to New York City where she met and married Eric A. Young on August 7th, 1976. From this union were born two children, Sheryl and Eric, Jr. When she first moved to the United States, she was a devoted au pair before she was able to pursue her career as a nurse. At a Gme when the AIDS epidemic was at its height, she bravely chose to work in New York’s first State-designated AIDS unit at St. Luke’s/Roosevelt Hospital. She chose to do the necessary work that others feared when the majority of nurses decided to transfer out of that unit rather than work with AIDS paGents. With Beverly’s leadership, the unit delivered care with compassion and heart that allowed the paGents to cross-over in peace in an era when there were no effecGve medicaGons for AIDS. During her over 40 years at St. Luke’s/Roosevelt she rose to the posiGon of Assistant Head Nurse. Her colleagues describe her as tough but fair and quietly caring. She conGnued to work diligently despite developing a rare lung disease that required her to wear oxygen. AEer her reGrement, she received a lung transplant in 2019. Though the recovery was tough, she was tougher and persevered. Throughout Beverly’s life, she enjoyed mulGple pasGmes. She insGlled the love of exploring the world in her children from a very young age. During the school years, the family trips included Europe, Hawaii, Cancun and the Grand Canyon. In the later years, the family enjoyed wonderful adventures to Tanzania and Alaska. But her favorite place of all was Las Vegas. She loved the food, the lights, the shows, the excitement, the iHeart Music FesGval and of course the slot tournaments. She was an avid bowler who bowled in mulGple leagues. Her most recent sports love was tennis which she shared with her daughter. Not only was she a spectator but was also an amateur coach who could accurately pinpoint where Sheryl’s game needed improvement even though she had never picked up a racquet herself. She also had a love of music and had a good ear. She was a frequent concert goer and despite being on oxygen would groove to Uncle Charlie at the Essence FesGval and set the party off right with Bruno Mars. She also enjoyed the theater and Broadway plays. One of her favorite mocos was “Life is short, treat yourself” and that she did. While shopping for luxury was key for her, she never let a good deal, sale or coupon pass her by. As a person, you could count on her sense of humor to bring a smile to your face. She also used humor to deal with adversity. Her sassy one-liners will be missed. She was generous with her family and friends. If she ever saw someone in need, she helped them. She was thoughful and caring. She was a wonderful Mom who encouraged her children to do their best. She loved them fiercely and uncondiGonally. When she fell ill in 2023, she again demonstrated resilience and perseverance. She won her bacle against illness and gained permanent peace and comfort in the embrace of the Lord on February 6th, 2024. Her loss is deeply felt by all those who knew her. She is survived by her mother Ruby Bernard (nee Bartley), her brother Peter Bernard, her husband of 47 years Eric A. Young, her daughter Sheryl Young, MD, her son Eric A. Young, Jr. and a host of cousins, “adopted” children/grandchildren and friends. She is and will conGnue to be sorely missed.
