IFBB Pro Beverly Direnzo's funeral fundraiser

IFBB Pro/ cheer and gymnastic coach/ fitness trainer Beverly Direnzo unexpectedly (but peacefully) passed away last night, leaving behind the children she adored to bear the burden of planning and funding their beloved mama's funeral. Beverly was admired and loved by many, as she fearlessly and tirelessly made a name for herself in the bodybuilding world as an Ifbb Pro. All the while, working hard to have her own gymnasium/ business (Intense Gymnastics) where she encouraged, trained and supported many young athletes as a cheer and gymnastics coach. With just as much dedication, over the past several years, Bev continued her passion in fitness and weight lifting as a personal trainer at Gulf Coast Fitness. She was the Wonder Woman of Southwest Florida with a passion for helping other's achieve their goals. She had a heart of gold, a silly and sassy sense of humor and she could light up a room with her smile. She was smart, beautiful and a complete lunatic most of the time! She will, without a doubt, be missed immensely. This fundraiser is to show Bevie some love, and help support her children as they mourn such a great loss. Funerals are expensive! It's hard enough losing a parent. It's even harder, at such a young age, losing the only parent you have so unexpectedly. Let's all pull together and help Bev's children give their mama a proper farewell. Leanna and Tyler should be able to mourn the tragic loss of their mama, without having to worry about the unfortunate expense that goes along with it. It's the least we could do... to thank Bev for everything she has done for us! Even the smallest donation will help offset the expenses that Leanna and Tyler will be facing. Thank you in advance for your love and support during this very difficult chapter of their lives. Bev loves you all so much! And I know she will be grinning from ear to ear with every donation made. Here's to eternal shenanigans Beverly Direnzo! We love you!!!! Keep shining like the beautifully bright star that you are!!!
