With great sadness, we announce the loss of our beloved sister, sister-in-law, and aunt, Beverly Jean Bietsch, age 84, on March 6, 2024 at her home in Arlington, Texas.

Beverly was born and raised in Springfield, IL. She attended Ss. Peter & Paul Grade School and graduated from Lanphier High School. She spent her professional life as a long-time government employee working for Selective Service. Her career took her to San Antonio and then finally Arlington, TX where she spent much of her life.

She was very active in retirement, up until her passing. She volunteered with Meals on Wheels, worked in the office of her parish church, Most Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church of Arlington, and attended Bible Study in the evenings with her friends. She was an avid reader and volunteered as a member of the Friends of the Arlington Library, helping fundraise with their semi-annual book sales. She also worked for many years as a volunteer at the Arlington Visitors Center greeting tourists in the shadow of the Cowboys Stadium and Rangers Ballpark. She was fiercely independent and traveled a great deal during her many decades to such places as Italy, Israel and Australia. She enjoyed an active life with no regrets to the very end. We will miss her, but she remains an example of a life well-lived for all of us.

She is survived by her brothers Albert and Harry Bietsch, sister-in-law Doris Bietsch, nieces/nephews and grandnieces/nephews.

She is pre-deceased by her parents, Albert and Evelyn (Peters) Bietsch.
