Harriet Irene Bellinger Beaty was born December 9, 1929 in Haddam, Kansas. She was the fourth of six children born to Claude and Sylvia Bellinger. The family moved to Missouri in a Model T and she was raised outside of Ava. Always a hard worker Irene, as she preferred to be called, worked so many different jobs that no one really knows what they all were. She worked everything from a milk route, being a bartender, a gas station owner to making uniforms and running an upholstery business with her late husband Vernon.
Known for her charismatic personality, she was always quick with a joke or a funny story. Besides the Wheel of Fortune, spending time with family and friends gave her the most joy. She would never say no to a game of Penny Poker or Dominoes. In her quiet time, she enjoyed her word search puzzles and most of all, making quilts and afghans for those she loved.
Never one to meet a stranger, Irene always looked for the good in people and went out of her way to make everyone feel welcome in her presence. Throughout her life she faced many hard times but never let it dull her spirit. Anyone who knew her would agree that the party didn’t start until Mudder got there.
On January 25, 2017, Irene passed quietly in her home. She was preceded in death by her parents, Claude and Sylvia. Siblings John, Wilda, Freddie and Bill. Her beloved husband Vernon Beaty and children Roy “Junior” and Wanda Lou Aid. Grandchildren Tina Krauskopf and Shawn Dean Aid.
Her memory will forever live on in the lives of her family: Brother Lonnie and Gail Bellinger; Children Rev. Bobby and Sharol Aid; Rev. David and Julie Aid; Betty Jo and Larry Black; Penny and Choc McLean; Boyd Beaty; Connie Beaty; Barbara Krauskopf; Daughter-in-Law Cyndi Aid; twenty-two grandchildren; twenty-eight great-grandchildren; thirteen great-great-grandchildren; nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
