October 12, 1946 - September 3, 2021
Katharin Lee (Kay) Betler Pross of Beverly passed away Friday September 3, 2021. She was born October 12, 1946 at Montrose, a daughter of the late George H. and Frances Suesli Betler. She is survived by her loving husband of 46 years, Frederick Edward Pross. Fred and Kay were married July 26, 1975 in Maryland where they shared life and developed careers. After a brief move to Georgia they retired back to Beverly, WV. Also surviving are two sisters, Joyce Estridge and husband Gilbert of Beverly, and Carylon Tallman of Columbia, Md, one brother, George Betler and wife Karen of Catonsville, Md. Several nephews, and grand nephews and nieces, and great-grand nephews and nieces also survive. Kay graduated from Elkins High School in 1964 and attended West Virginia Business College. For 25 years she honed her gifts of organization and efficiency, rising to serve as an Administrative Assistant to several Deans of the College of Human Ecology at the University of Maryland at College Park. Kay was a member of the Beverly Presbyterian Church and found innumerable ways to serve and beautify her community. She had a curious mind and a zest for life. Her kind and loving nature was evident in the way she naturally connected with children and all of God's creatures. Young friends fondly remember Kay spending time sledding down hills after a snow storm, or sharing ice cream sandwiches after a long school day. She greeted her friends with a smile and parted with a warm hug. She was a wonderful, caring, and selfless person and we are better for knowing her. A graveside service will be held Wednesday September 8 at 2:00 pm at Mountain State Memorial Gardens near Gilman with the Reverend Rich Cardot and the Reverend Nancy Stevens officiating. Interment will follow. Memorial donations may be made to the Beverly Presbyterian Church at P.O. Box 206, Beverly, WV 26253. The Tomblyn Funeral Home of Elkins is in charge of the arrangements for Katharin Lee (Kay) Pross. Condolences may be expressed to the family at www.tomblynfuneralhome.com.
