Nancy Kay Beavers went to be with the Lord on January 25th, 2023, at the age of 76. She was born on August 8th, 1946, in Alva, Oklahoma to Eldon and Talmadge Leeper. Nancy grew up on the family farm near Dacoma, OK. She graduated from Dacoma Schools in 1964. Following high school, Nancy moved to Enid, OK to pursue a career as a medical secretary. It was during this time that she met Bob Beavers and fell in love, and they were married on April 26th, 1974, in Enid. Nancy and Bob settled first in Midwest City, where they welcomed their son, Michael. Shortly thereafter they relocated to Moore, OK. Nancy made a career as a Unit Secretary at Bone & Joint Hospital, where she retired after 27 years, so she could enjoy traveling with Bob and spending time with her grandchildren.
Nancy is survived by her loving husband of 48 years, Bobby Beavers; her son & daughter-in-law, Michael & Rebecca Beavers, and her granddaughters, Abigail & Rachael Beavers; as well as many beloved cousins, and other family and friends.
There will be a visitation at the John M. Ireland and Son Funeral Home at 120 S. Broadway in Moore, OK on Thursday February 2nd from 1:00PM-8PM. A memorial service will be held at First United Methodist Church of Moore at 201 S. Main St. Moore, OK at 10:00AM on February 3rd, 2023. Nancy will be laid to rest at Garrison Cemetery, in Alfalfa County, OK.
Nancy… she loved deeply… her husband, her family (especially her granddaughters), her cats and her Diet Coke… but not always in that order! Nancy was a faithful believer and active member for many years at First United Methodist Church of Moore. Nancy’s faith, she would tell you, came from her grandmother, and Iike her grandmother, Nancy suffered from Rheumatoid Arthritis beginning at the young age of 19. Despite the pain that she endured daily from the disease, Nancy was almost always seen with a bright smile on her face. She loved to laugh, and would frequently reminisce with anyone that would listen about funny family stories. She loved to shop, particularly for jewelry and purses, and took great delight when her daughter-in-law and granddaughters would join her in shopping for those items too. While 76 years was not enough for those that loved Nancy, she left them knowing unquestionably that they were loved by her, and that she lived a full life despite any challenges. Let Nancy’s life be an example for all of us, to always look for the brighter side and to approach life with a smile and an open heart.
