Glenda A. Beasley
1945 - 2012
Glenda Ann Beasley wife of Arthur W. Beasley died on December 19, 2012 as the result of an automobile accident.
Glenda was born January 29, 1945 in Columbia, Mo. She married Art Beasley June 3, 1966 at Centralia, MO. Glenda was born and raised in Centralia, MO where she graduated from high school in 1962. She and Art moved to Haven, KS in 1980, and they have lived in Louisburg since 1987. She was a life time member of the First Christian Church, and a member of Louisburg Christian Church since 1987. Glenda and Art were avid travelers. She has been to Europe several times, China, Costa Rica, Mexico, Canada, Budapest, and ran with the bulls.
Glenda graduated from Kirksville teaching college in 1966 and received her Master’s degree from Mid America Nazarene College. Glenda has been a teacher almost her entire life. Her teaching career began on an army base in Mannheim Germany in 1966. Recently, Glenda taught school in Osawatomie Kansas from 1987 to 1998 before accepting a teaching position with the Louisburg High school in the business department. Since 1998, “Glenda Beasley Sweetheart Dear” has taught many students the difference between a tea pot and a sugar bowl, accounting, various other business courses, and coordinated the prom. She has touched the lives of many through her teaching as it was a large part of who she was.
While Glenda may have been a teacher most of her life, she was a wife, mother, and grandmother all of her life. She spent countless hours making homemade donuts, cooking hunters’ breakfast, making friendship bracelets and sitting on bleachers in all kinds of weather. We cannot begin to understand how the hole she leaves behind will be filled.
Glenda was preceded in death by her dad O.D. Grinstead, her sister Nancy Buie, and her son Todd Alan Beasley. Those of us who know her closely are convinced they are all partying in heaven right now.
She is survived by husband Art Beasley; children Amy Hughes husband Shawn Hughes, Kip Beasley and his partner Steve Culberson , Jon Beasley, and mother Lois Mayes Grinstead. She was the world to eight grandchildren, Tanner, Carson, and Kody Hughes; Keira and Trevor Beasley-Culberson; and Tate, Addison, and Jamison Lenz.
The family suggests contributions to the Todd Beasley Scholarship Fund.
