Beverly Jean Staton

April 11, 1946 ~ June 22, 2020 (age 74)


Beverly Jean Staton


     Beverly Jean Staton was born April 11, 1946. She passed away on June 22, 2020 at the age of 74. Beverly was born to Carl and Alta Owens and was raised on the family farm south of Denver, Missouri.

     Bev married Dwayne Staton on April 6, 1968. To this union 3 children were born, Wilsie Jean, Carl Lee and Robert Dewayne. Most of their married life they lived in the Allendale area. In their later years they moved to Grant City.  They had celebrated 50 years together  before his passing in 2018.

     Beverly worked for more than 30 years for Gentry County Memorial Hospital. During her years there she worked on the ambulance crew and later as the housekeeping  supervisor. Throughout the years she formed several long lasting friendships that she valued. During her evenings you would find her working at the Oldtowne Café or at the Pool Hall in Allendale.

     Bev had a love for sports. In her younger years she loved to bowl and even had a few trophies to show for it. She coached girl’s summer softball for a few summers. It was always the highlight of her summer. She liked to go fishing when she had a chance. In recent years you could always find her watching Men’s College Basketball. She was highly upset when March Madness was cancelled this year due to the Corona Virus. She also liked to watch Sunday football and cheer on the Chiefs.

     Bev’s health had been declining for several years, but she never wanted to talk about herself. She was more concerned with everyone else in the family and their well being. If you ever needed anything she would do her best to make sure it would happen… even if she had to go without. She was a selfless hard working wife, mother and grandmother.

     Beverly was preceded in death by her husband Dwayne, parents, Carl and Alta Owens, brother Morris Owens, sister Kay Smith and nephew Reaford Owens.

     Beverly is survived by her children: Wilsie Jean and Kevin  Fletchall, Carl and Jennifer Staton and Robert and Treasa Staton, all of Grant City, Grandchildren: Codie Knight, Andrew Pickering, Cory Pickering, Cameron & Aubrey Staton, Kara, Macie and Robbie Staton; great-grandchildren: Riglie and Harper Staton; Chloe, Ina and Avah Knight, Emery and Lane Pickering and Patrick Pickering,  Step-children: Teresa and Dale Winemiller and children; Sandy Meredith and children; and Bill and Frankie Staton and children and nieces: Kathy Cavanaugh and Karla Hughes.
