With Deepest Sympathy to the family of Betty Beaman, our prayers are with you. Betty was a wonderful soul and her and her late husband were very dear friends to me and my late husband, we shared many memories together visiting them at their home on 6th while enjoying a cup of coffee together, and attending their sales. Always enjoyed her telling me how the election polls turned out and the long days she spent at the polls, she was determined to accomplish anything she set her mind to and was very strong willed, she always was one to strike up a good conversation. Our Family loves her dearly and she will be missed by many in and out of our community of Sedalia. ( The Late William Brauer Family), Barbara Ann, John Robert, Angela Marie.
