Anne R. Beaty
March 4, 1929 — May 31, 2015
Anne R. Beaty of Waukesha passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 31, 2015, at her residence at the Avalon Square at 86 years. Anne was born in Kaufman, Texas, on March 4, 1929, the daughter of Lewis Doty and Mary Louise Runnels.
Anne worked as a stewardess for American Airlines and on July 15, 1952 she married Robert (Bob) Hayes Beaty, the son of late Mayor Bruce F. Beaty. Anne and Bob moved from Chicago back to Waukesha, Bob’s hometown, in 1956, where they raised their children and resided until 1985. Anne was an active volunteer within her community and donated her time to Waukesha public schools, the Woman’s Club, the Kiwi Club and the First United Methodist Church. Anne and Bob moved to Reedsburg in 1985, where she and Bob again made many dear friends in the community and at their local Methodist church. Anne moved back to the Avalon Square in Waukesha in 2012 and reunited with her church and old friends. Anne loved to read good books as well as play cards, go for walks and spend time at “the lake” with her family.
Anne was preceded in death by her husband Robert in 1998, and her sister Jean Bridges.
She will be missed greatly by her family: sons, James (Kim) Beaty of Wales and Gregg (Cheryl) Beaty of San Diego; her grandchildren Erik (Jill) Beaty, Tyler, Chelsea, Collin and Marissa; and great-grandchildren, Bryson, Karson and Samuel.
