Kathryn (Kathy) Bevan Obituary

Kathryn E. Bevan (Kathy) of Wentzville, Missouri, passed away on February 29, 2024 at the age of 80.  She is survived by her husband of 57 years, Albert Bevan Jr. (Al) of Wentzville, her son Albert Bevan III (“Tripper”), daughter-in-law Stacy, and two grandchildren, Peri and Reece Bevan of O’Fallon, Missouri, and her daughter Layla Moye, and two grandchildren, Adelaide (Addy) and Elsa Moye of Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Kathryn was preceded in death by her father, Heilman Allen, her mother Maxine Allen, and her brother Richard Allen, a Vietnam war veteran with the United States Army.

Kathy spent her childhood and early adult years in Austin, Minnesota and Dallas, Texas.  She graduated with a bachelor’s degree from University of Arizona and was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority.  While pursuing a passion for teaching, she met Albert at the University of Colorado at a fish fry.  The two were soon happily married on August 31, 1966 in Austin, Minnesota, honeymooned in Aspen, Colorado, and settled in Colorado Springs.

As a devoted homemaker, while raising children, Kathy played a significant role in the building committee for the Vista Grande Community Church in Colorado Springs, volunteered with the Colorado Springs police department, and was very active in P.E.O, a philanthropic organization where women celebrate the advancement of women, educate women through many types of financial support, and motivate women to achieve their highest potential.  For recreation, Kathy enjoyed skiing and snowshoeing with her husband in and around Aspen, Colorado.

Kathy retired with Albert in Glenwood Springs, Colorado and enjoyed several years of hiking, jeeping and camping throughout Colorado and Utah together with their West Highland White Terriers.  The more challenging the jeep road, the better, which exemplified Kathy’s life-long belief in the value of perseverance through any obstacles.  Kathy was a member of Mountain View Church in Glenwood Springs and helped the Gideon Auxiliary fulfill the mission of ‘spreading the good news’ through bible deliveries to area hospitals and doctor offices.  Kathy continued her active engagement with P.E.O in the Glenwood Springs chapter, achieving a milestone of ‘50 years of membership’.  For hobbies, Kathy was an avid bird watcher, particularly of hummingbirds, and loved cheering on her grandchildren in all their events prior to moving to Wentzville in 2017 to spend her remaining years in the loving care of Albert.

Kathy will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her, and we have comfort in knowing Kathy is spending eternity with the Lord Jesus, our savior.
