Beverly Sharon Lemmon
Beverly Sharon Lemmon, of Boyds, died Feb. 25 after suffering from peritoneal cancer. She was 66. Lemmon grew up in Passaic, N.J., and graduated from Clifton High School in 1969. Lemmon then attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, and earned an associate degree in 1971. At 19, she became a department manager at a Macy’s store in New Jersey.
Lemmon married her husband, Wayne, in 1973, and they moved to the Washington area, where she worked at the Woodward & Lothrop department store. After becoming a parent in her 30s, Lemmon launched a licensed child-care business at home named Kid’s Playhouse. She and her husband organized gatherings and dinner clubs with many of her neighbors. In some cases, she became a surrogate parent or lent support to other families.
Lemmon earned a bachelor’s degree in behavioral science from the University of Maryland in 1997. It was at that time she founded the Maryland chapter of Monday Morning Moms, a specialized child-care placement service that allowed her to be a business owner and still be available to her own children.
Lemmon and her family moved to Somers, N.Y., in 2000 when her husband started a new job and she sold her business. She earned a master’s degree in social work at New York University in 2004, and began working for the Jewish Child Care Association, where she oversaw case management of clinical services for foster care youth and their families.
Lemmon’s husband died of cancer in 2009, and three years later she returned to Maryland, continuing her career in social work until being forced to retire in 2016 due to her own illness. She is survived by her brothers Robert (Susan) and Martin (Rochelle) Rabkin; children Matthew (Alessandra) and Jessica Lemmon; grandchildren Lyra and Noah Lemmon.
