Dorothy Beasley 76, of Danville Illinois, passed this life on April 1, 2023 at her home. Dororthy Boyd Beasley was born in Birmingham, Alabama on February 21, 1947 to Margaret Ingram
Boyd Smith and Ocie Boyd. She was married to Lawrence Joe Beasley for 38 years, which he passed this life in 2013.
Dorothy was a dedicated and true Jehovah Witness for over 30 years. She loved her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren dearly. Her life was dedicated to helping everyone who asked or
didn’t ask for assistance. She worked over 40 years as a Certified Nursing Assistance for nursing homes and retired from the Veteran Administration Hospital five years ago. Even after retirement she could not stop taking care of people, so she started working as a Personal Care Provider, even working as a Bus Monitor for Danville School Bus System. Her heart was opened to anyone who was in need of care, food or conversation. She fought a good fight, she kept the faith and I know Jehovah God was pleased with her.
