Obituary for Edith Dorrine Beatty

Worthington, MN

      Edith Dorrine Moore Beatty, 96, of Worthington, MN, passed away on Thursday, April 2, 2015, at South Shore Care Center, Worthington, MN.

      Edith was born on August 23, 1918, in Rockwell City, IA, to Mary Lavisa and Andrew Jackson Moore. She married Spencer John Beatty on December 25, 1939. Edith enjoyed playing the piano and organ for church, and for pleasure at home. She was a faithful worker in her church. “Going riding” in her car was a great pleasure for her, especially when she had her little dog with her. Edith loved to go for coffee with her friends, and share news with them. She was an expert at flower arranging, and especially loved the roses her husband grew just for her. She was an excellent cook who could also make wonderful desserts! Edith was kind, gentle and giving. She will be missed.

      Survivors include her son John Spenser Beatty, her daughter Carol Ann Waltersdorf, her grandsons Thomas Howard and Michael John Waltersdorf, and three great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband of 45 years.

      Visitation will be held on Tuesday, April 7, 2015, from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Benson Funeral Home Chapel in Worthington, MN, followed by burial in the Worthington Cemetery.
