Helen "Louise" Bevan passed away peacefully on August 22, 2017, having recently celebrated 62 years of marriage to her husband, LeRoy Bevan.
Louise was born in Seattle in 1934, and raised in Everett, Washington by her parents, Fred and Mary (Putnam) Berry. Her husband, H. LeRoy Bevan, her daughter, Susan Ross (Brian), son, Bradley Bevan, survives Louise along with her grandchildren, Michael Zink (Brad), Airon Bevan (Brad) and Noah Ross (Susan). She is also survived by her sister, Ruth (LeRoy) Mills, nieces Carolyn Fields, Judy Kennedy and nephew, Rod Mills, along with several other Aunts, Uncles and Cousins, and her God-Daughter Linda (Jerry) Campbell and her family.
Louise was a graduate of Everett High School (1952) and attended Seattle Pacific University, University of Washington, and later in life Edison Tech. Her first career was as a dental assistant but she opened a day care after her daughter was born. She ran Happy Time Day Care for nearly three decades, where she cared for over 500 children during that time before moving from Seattle to Arlington. Once she moved to Arlington, she worked as a nanny and then in the kitchen at an assisted living facility until she retired in her late 70s.
Louise's Love of God was evident in the work that she did with the children that she worked with over the years and to all of the people that she came in contact during her lifetime. Louise was a humble person who loved her family, her dear friends and her dogs Silky and Monte.
A celebration of Louise's life will be held on Saturday, September 23rd at Shoreline Free Methodist Church at 2:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Jude's Hospital or to the Senior Services of Snohomish County-Transportation Assistance Program.
Arrangements under the direction of Weller Funeral Home, Arlington, WA.
