Edna Lorena (Clayton) Beasley, age 94, a resident of Los Chavez, NM, was called home by her heavenly Father on Sunday, May 9, 2009.
She was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Belen, NM. Edna was born in Erick, OK. She and her husband, Dean lived in Belen after their marriage, and after his passing, she moved to Los Chavez to be near her son, Jim and his family.
Edna was the last of 13 Clayton family members. She was well known for her excellent cooking and baking, especially her coconut and lemon pies. Her family also knew that she made the best ever chicken and dumplings!
Edna enjoyed crocheting and sharing the beautiful Afghans and potholders she made with her family and friends. As a wife, mother, grandmother and homemaker, Edna was one-of-a-kind.
She lived by the motto "living to give" to her children and family. Edna blessed her children and grandchildren with more love than they could take in.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Dean Roy Beasley on June 27, 1989; and an infant daughter, Betty Jo Beasley.
Edna is survived by her two sons, James "Jim" L. Beasley and wife, Ida of Los Chavez, William "Bill" Beasley and wife, Nancy of Tacoma, WA; daughter, Josephine Thompson of Oklahoma; six grandchildren who call her "Granny", Aaron, Ashley, Bryan and Terry Beasley, Troy Thompson and Traci Riddle; and five great-grandchildren. The family wishes to extend thanks to Dr. Norah Walsh of Rio Abajo Family Practice and her staff for the many years of caring and compassion offered to Edna.
