BEVANS, Irma Pauline (nee Beckett) ,93, passed away peacefully on October 11, 2017. She was preceded in death by her husband, Ronald T. Bevans.

Irma and family settled in Stamford, CT in 1977 where she was employed with Pierson & Smith real estate. She was a loyal member and the long-time secretary/treasurer at Stamford Baptist Church.

Mom was a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and a special friend and inspiration to all who knew her. She will be greatly missed by all. Her family will receive friends on Monday from 5pm to 8pm at the Bouton and Reynolds Funeral Home, 2900 Summer St. Stamford (Leo P. Gallagher & Son Funeral Home) with a prayer service to be held at 7:00 PM. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Notre Dame Convalescent Home, 76 W. Rocks Rd, Norwalk CT 06851.
