A few days later she was airlifted to Barnes Jewish Hospital and placed on a ventilator.
According to KMOV:
Hobaugh’s twin sister, Sheila West, said the 59-year-old with diabetes and asthma took every precaution to avoid getting COVID-19. “When she would go shopping or something she would come home and take a shower and of course, she had tons of hand sanitizer,” West said. “She wore her mask and was just very careful.”
In late August, Hobaugh developed a mild cough and was diagnosed with COVID-19. But when her symptoms and breathing worsened, she was admitted to Parkland Health Center in Farmington.

Beverly is missed deeply by her family, especially her twin sister, her extended family, friends, church family, and everyone else whose lives she touched.
