Proverbs 31:28 “Her children arise and call her blessed…”
Beverly Ann Patton Chamblee formerly of Lake Winnebago, Missouri died peacefully in the presence of her loving family on July 24, 2021, at the age of 88.
Bev was born to William Max and Gladys C. Patton on October 14, 1932, in Dallas, Texas. Her family moved to Kansas City in 1934. She attended Southwest High School and the University of Missouri at Columbia where she was a member of Gamma Phi Beta sorority.
Bev married Donald L. Chamblee in 1954, who predeceased her in 1989. Bev and Don’s 35-year union embodied 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor other, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” Pillars in the community, Bev and Don were both active choir members and served on various church committees at Lee’s Summit United Methodist Church while raising a family of five children. Bev also volunteered at Children’s Mercy Hospital and selflessly served friends and family in need throughout her lifetime. The family finds comfort in the assurance that Bev and Don are now reunited in Christ.
In her latter years Bev loved to read novels, enjoyed her weekly Bridge club, prevailed as a formidable opponent in Rummy and family Poker games, and delighted in spending time with her adult children and their families. Exceptionally clever and sharp-witted, Bev brought joy and laughter to every gathering.
Bev will be forever cherished and remembered by her children Claudia Chamblee Hughes, Christa Chamblee Roberts, Bruce Chamblee, Darrall Chamblee, and Craig Chamblee; son-in-law Robert Hughes, son-in-law Roger Roberts, daughter-in law Tina Chamblee, and daughter-in-law Nancy Chamblee; seven grandchildren; and 4 great grandchildren. Bev will be missed by her many nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.
On Wednesday, July 28, 2021 at 11:00 AM, a graveside service will be held at Lee’s Summit Historical Cemetery. The family requests contributions to the memorial fund at Lee’s Summit United Methodist Church in lieu of flowers (L.S.U.M. Church, 3381 NW Chipman Rd., Lee’s Summit, MO 64081
