Beatrice (Bea) Romaine Jury was born on June 29, 1923 in York, Pennsylvania, to Jacob and Julia (Neff) Jury. She grew up in the Pennsylvania area graduating from High School in Manchester, PA. Bea married Donald T. Beavers on August 2, 1943 in Washington, DC. They resided in York, PA where she enjoyed being a housewife.

Bea and her family moved to California around 1948, settling in the Los Angeles area, where Bea attended Valley Junior College and the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). She began her teaching career in 1955, teaching elementary and junior high students, including the subjects of English and French, in various Christian schools in California. Later on, she became an administrator and helped establish several Christian schools in the area. Her love of teaching also included being a Bible teacher for many years.

In 1983, Bea moved to Dickinson, ND to be near her daughter and family. 1990, she helped her daughter and son-in-law open The Novel Place Bookstore in Dickinson. While there, she established a mystery book club that was in existence for more than 20 years.

Bea was a life-long learner, educator and reader. She was never without a book in her hand or in her purse. Christmas always brought enjoyment to Bea, along with all things red, white and blue. Bea was a member of Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in Dickinson. She loved her Lord with a passion, her family and her country.

Bea is survived by children, Donald T. (Yolanda) Beavers II of Snook, TX, Jay (Karyn) Beavers of Georgetown, TX, Cynthia (Eugene) Buresh of Dickinson, ND; grandchildren, Jennifer Buresh of Dickinson, ND, Katherine (Curt) Olson of Garrison, ND, Eric Beavers of Irvine, CA, Sarah (Jeff) Gordy of Mission Veigo, CA, Kevin Beavers of Scotia, NY; great-grandchildren, Christian Sims, Jacob Zastoupil, Aaron Gordy, Jayne Gordy; sister, Jacqueline Groseth of Alhambra, CA; brother, Jacob Jury of Pismo Beach, CA; one niece and several nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Jacob and Julia; stepmother, Garnet; her husband, Donald; sisters, Barbara Jury, Jean Buhler; infant great-grandson, Christopher Buresh.

In lieu of flowers the family suggests memorial be given to Dickinson Area Public Library or St. Luke’s Home of Dickinson.

So many wonderful memories of good conversations and laughter. Things we had in common. We had both been married on August 2nd and her parents first names were Jacob and Julia. My grandparent names were Jacob and Julia. Remembering the Bible Study at her home, the annual black walnut cake, and many other things.

Bea was a very special lady. She was one of my favorite library patrons because of her love of books. She & I had a lot of interesting conversations over the years. My heartfelt condolences on your loss.
