Beverly Shoenberger (born May 8, 1947)[1] is the mother of Rivers and Leaves Cuomo. She was formerly married to Frank Cuomo and, later on, to Stephen Kitts.


Her father, Frederick Louis Shoenberger, is of German descent, while her mother, Pauline Lois (née Sims) Shoenberger is of English descent. Shoenberger's life with Rivers and Leaves, as well as her husband Frank Cuomo, mostly revolved around the Zen Center in upstate New York. After Frank left the family, Shoenberger took her sons and went to Yogaville, which was run by Sri Swami Satchidananda. Here, she met Stephen Kitts, whom she later fell in love with and married. Both worked as massage therapists.

When Yogaville moved in the 1980s, Shoenberger and Kitts chose to remain in Connecticut and relocated to Storrs Mansfield. In the summer of 1983, the Kitts purchased a home on South Eagleville. There, the couple founded "The Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy". Shoenberger soon met Mary Pat Fisher, the mother of Justin Fisher. The two found they had much in common and arranged for their children to play together frequently.
