Obituary of Beverly P. Clough
Beverly (Pikula) Clough, 85, of Glastonbury passed away peacefully on Friday, March 11, 2022. Beverly was born in Hartford and was the widow of Eugene A. Clough. She was the daughter of the late Frank and Marian (Dewey) Pikula, and was a member of St. Dunstan Church.
“Bunny” was a proud graduate of Glastonbury High School’s class of 1954, where she met (and went on to marry) her high school sweetheart, Gene. At the center of her world was her family; she never missed a sporting event, recital, play, or concert. Bunny could never wait for the next opportunity to create memories with her grandchildren. She loved hosting family gatherings, especially the annual Christmas gift exchange. Bunny was a woman of many talents. She was an amazing seamstress, baker and crafter, and she lovingly created treasured heirlooms for her friends and family. She never missed an opportunity to help plan a high school reunion, or to spend time with those she loved. Bunny was a kind and gentle soul who went out of her way to help those around her and to make everyone feel special.
Bunny is survived by her two daughters, Debbie Viens and her husband Tim of Hebron; Dana Sanderson and her husband Craig of Glastonbury; her son David Clough and his wife Fiona of Hebron; her five grandchildren Megan and Maggie Sanderson, Heather and Jonathan Clough, and Amy Viens; her brother Gregory Pikula and his wife Jane of Florida; her sister-in-law Janet Pikula; many beloved nieces and nephews; cherished life-long friends; and her rescue cat, Daisy. Bunny was predeceased by her brother, Robert Pikula, her sister-in-law Janice and her husband, Dan, and her brother-in-law Bob and his wife, Joanne.
The family would like to thank the wonderful CNAs, nurses, and staff of Manchester Manor for their loving and compassionate care, and Masonicare for the comfort they provided Bunny. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to a charity near and dear to Bunny’s heart: Protectors of Animals (144 Main St., Unit O, East Hartford, CT 06118).
