Our favorite nurse, Ione Louise Beavers, has completed her beautiful circle of life on January 29,2023 in her home in Morrill, surrounded by her family. Cremation has taken place and at her request, no services will be held. Online condolences may be expressed by visiting www.reverencefuneralparlor.com.
She was born to Albert and Vera Pedersen on May 17, 1944 in Broken Bow, Nebraska and from there moved to Kearney. She attended the University of Nebraska Lincoln later receiving her Bachelor's of Nursing.
Ione and her husband, Gordon, were married March 17, 1963. They raised their family in Eustis, Nebraska, moving to Hartington for a few years and later moved to Morrill. She started her oncology nursing career at Regional West Medical Center where she retired from Radiation Oncology after 16 years of service. Nursing and caring for others was her one true gift and love in life. Her love for gardening and flowers could be seen in her gorgeous yard. Throughout her life, she was artistic and loved making stained glass pieces. She made a huge mark in many people's lives and will be missed more than she could ever realize.
Ione is survived by her loving husband, Gordon; son, Jacques Beavers of Omaha; daughter, Heidi (Scott) Stephenson of Puyallup, WA; grandsons, Ian Beavers of Omaha and Tycho Stephenson of Puyallup, WA; sister, Lois (Jerry) Idt of Lincoln; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Ione was preceded in death by her parents.
