In Loving Memory of Jane Pearl Beamon

On October 9, 1922, God blessed James Taylor Cook and Marie Viola Kirksey Cook with the birth of Jane Pearl Cook Beamon, the fifth of nine children. Jane graduated from Greene County Training School in Eutaw, Alabama. She attended and was baptized at Cooks A.M.E. Zion Chapel. She lived in Chicago, Illinois, and then moved to Seattle, Washington, and met and married the late Jessie Beamon on February 7, 1974. Jane worked as a butcher until retirement. She loved holidays, family dinners, and traveling the world. She was heavily involved with the First A.M.E. Church in Seattle, and volunteering with the food bank. Jane passed away on September 17, 2020. Left to celebrate Jane's life are her two living sisters, Lois Harris and Susie Dennis, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and family friends. Due to COVID, a celebration of life will be held with family only on October 8, 2020, at Sunset Hills Memorial Park in Bellevue, Washington. In Lieu of flowers, please make a contribution to the First AME Church Feeding Ministry, 1522 14th Ave, Seattle, WA 98122

I met Aunt Jane when she opened her home for us to stay with her when Kevin and David got married- there was an instant bond! We talked about travel, history, her life, her spoons collection, Church, food, everything. She immediately became my Auntie too. We would sometimes talk by phone, she visited us in NYC and we crashed the reunion in MD just to see Auntie Jane!
My favorite memory of Auntie is the laughter and love in her smiles, she will be missed ❣️

Aunt Jane,
It is an honor and a blessing to have known you.
You were such a sweet and loving person.
I can say without doubt that you loved people. Your contagious smile and laughter,
A giver in so many ways.
I’ll miss the evenings that we spent together- we talked. .. And laughed.
How you’d ask me to spend the night and insist that I sleep on your bed and you sleep on the couch 😊
I will miss you... And will always love you.. Amen!

Aunt Jane,
I feel so blessed to have met a GoOD beautiful person such as yourself. I will always remember your kindness and youthfulness! I am so glad I got to see you after your last birthday party despite your not being able to attend. I will keep an eye on your wonderful, attentive nephews, Kevin and David, and I am sure we will have some great conversations filled with laughter as they reminisce about you! Thank you for being you and leaving us with smiles as we remember you.
Michele A.

Jayne was a beautiful person. She was a loving, caring, giving, serving Christian . I have fond memories of seeing her and her sister in church. I enjoyed being in her presence and will miss her dearly.

Jane was a true inspiration and a wealth of information. She would share stories of growing up and the success she made in the best of times and in the hard times. I truly loved to visit with her and she will be missed. I will hold dear to my heart the times we shared together.

Jane was a social butterfly! I truly believed that attribute contributed to her living a full, active and purposeful life.

Often when I visited she would be participating in an activity. I believe I enjoyed them as much as she did - especially the exercising and musical hangman! I loved how she found so much joy out of the little things, like looking out the window and commenting on the weather, trees, flowers and birds. Or simply “people watchIng” while sitting outside!!!

Nothing made her happier than drinking her coffee, eating a meal or snacking on David’s home baked goodies!!

I thank God that He allowed our paths to cross. I’m grateful for the many beautiful memories and that I could call her family. Going to miss Jane!!
