The Lord called Mary Virginia Harris Beebe home on February 19, 2018.

She is survived by her brother Edwin Harris; children: Chris Cheatham, David Beebe, Sandra Beebe, Judith Hanson (Beebe), Paul Beebe; 11 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.

Mary was born July 7, 1926 in Ashland, Kentucky, and grew up in Middletown, Ohio. She graduated from Ohio State University with a degree in Nursing. Mary served as a volunteer and professional nurse until her retirement.

Mary was married in 1953 to Captain Richard L. Beebe, a decorated Vietnam Era pilot, USAF.  She loved the life as a military wife and the opportunities it provided.

Mary enjoyed many activities: swimming exercise at the Y, golf, knitting, quilt making and playing board games.

Cherished by her family and friends, Mary will be greatly missed. Thank you, Lord, for blessing us with Mary.

Mary will be interred along with her husband in the Yellowstone National Cemetery.
