Beloved Mother and Nana, died on January 19, 2013, in her home with her family by her side in Denver, CO. She is survived by her children, Derek, Whitney (and husband Frank Buran and their daughters Tess and Thea), and David Stanfill (and his wife Nicole Tondre). Beecher was born in Evanston, IL, on September 7, 1937. She was preceded in death by her parents, Edward and Josephine Vollers, and her Sister Josephine Tolhurst. Beecher was a travel agent for over 20 years and travelled the globe when she wasn’t working. Beecher had true gifts; she always had a smile on her face, looked at the bright side of life, and was a talented baker and cook. She was an amazing listener – no wonder we all loved to talk to her! A Celebration of Life will be held in the late spring. You are welcome to send an e-mail to Whitney requesting information when the details are set (firstname.lastname@example.org). In lieu of flowers, you may want to contribute to Sense of Security, a local organization, near to Beecher’s heart. Senseofsecurity.org provides funds for breast cancer patients in financial need.
