Bev was born in Concord, Mass. on July 4, 1935, the daughter of the late Herbert Gifford Wood and Marion Vega (Friberg) Wood. Growing up in Waltham, Bev attended local schools and was a graduate of Waltham High School in the class of 1953.
After school Bev worked as a bookkeeper the following four years. She married the love of her life Wallace DeCoster in 1957 and the two would lived in Holliston, Mass. for 39 years raising their family.
