Dorothy Merle Beyers

Dorothy Merle Beyers, 100, of Mesa, AZ, passed into the Lord’s care on January 11, 2022, almost nine years following the passing of Lloyd Courtney Beyers, 95, on January 14, 2013. Dorothy was born April 11, 1921, in Aitkin County, MN where her parents farmed until they returned to Monticello, IN. Lloyd was born July 19, 1917, in Bloomington, IN. After Dorothy’s high school graduation, they met and were married on July 16, 1938. They were married for 74½ years before Lloyd passed away.

Lloyd and Dorothy raised five children and were thrilled when they all went on to receive college degrees. Their early married life was spent in Indiana in Lafayette, Monticello, and then Terre Haute where they lived for 30+ years. Dorothy worked at Goodwill Industries and retired from the Library at Indiana State University. Lloyd’s career was in aluminum manufacturing, with both Alcoa in Lafayette from 1940 – 1954, and Anaconda in Terre Haute from 1964 until retirement. They retired to Mesa in 2001, where they enjoyed many years of fun, sun and many family visits at Brentwood Park West.

Dorothy and Lloyd are survived by their children, Ron (Bernie) of West Lafayette, IN; Diane (Jamie) McInnes of Qualicum Beach, BC, Canada; Sally (Joe) Reynolds of Portage, IN; Rob Beyers of Mesa; and Gayle (Larry) Webb of Carmel, IN; 10 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and 7 great-great-grandchildren. A grandson and a great-grandson preceded them in death.

A gathering of those same family and friends will be held at 1:30 p.m. at the Monticello United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, 200 S Main St, Monticello, IN 47960.
