Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Beverly ‘Bev’ A. Albertson of Kansas City, Missouri passed away on September 20, 2023 after a courageous battle with cancer surrounded by loved ones. She was born in Kansas City, Missouri on August 26, 1949, to Harold and Kathryn ‘Alice’ Albertson.
Beverly graduated from Northeast High School and went on to get her bachelor’s degree from Kansas University. She then went on to attend the University of Missouri-Kansas City receiving a Masters in Special Education. Her greatest work accomplishment was working for McCune Home for Boys. There she taught a variety of subjects and went on to become the school Principal before retiring. Many of the boys would refer to her as ‘Mrs. A,’ and she took pride in knowing that she would have a positive impact on their lives.
To say that she was an avid gardener and loved flowers would be an understatement. She was a past member of the Master Gardeners of Greater Kansas City. Her garden was complete with roses and every kind of flower that would grow in our climate, blooming continuously in an abundance of colors. She enjoyed chatting with her close friends, reading, traveling the world with her husband, spending time in Mission, Texas for the winters with her RV Club family and watching her beloved Jayhawks and Kansas City Chiefs. Her greatest joy was spending Grandma time with her Grandson Ian whom she adored.
Beverly is preceded in death by her parents Harold and Kathryn ‘Alice’ Albertson and her beloved husband Dennis Person, Jr. of 30 years. She is survived by three stepchildren, Dennie Young-Nickles (John), Leah Person, Dennis Person III, and her grandson, Ian Young. She will be dearly missed by friends, family, and all who knew her.
To honor Beverly’s wishes, there will be no funeral services. I invite you to celebrate her memory privately in your own way. In lieu of flowers and cards, please consider sending a donation to the Girl Scouts of America in her honor at girlscouts.org. She always believed that the time she spent as a Girl Scout put her on a path to Success!
