Linda Beaman

September 4, 1947 — December 7, 2021

Linda Beaman, 74 of Taylorville, passed away on Tuesday, December 7, 2021 at 2:20 a.m. at Springfield Memorial Hospital in Springfield, IL. She was born on September 4, 1947 in Taylorville, IL, the daughter of Paul and Thelma (Starks) Crevits. She married Dennis Beaman in 1965 and they later divorced. Linda worked as a clerk at an insurance company in Taylorville, a bookkeeper for Darrell Beckett Insurance in Taylorville, then decided to pursue a career change and obtained a LPN license. She worked as a nurse at Doctor’s Hospital in Springfield and many years at Decatur Memorial Hospital.

Linda dearly loved her dog Angie, her children and her grandchildren – no one knew for sure in exactly what order. Before her health issues prevented it, she worked and volunteered time at the senior citizens center in Taylorville, volunteered time at the Christian County Animal Shelter and the Sangamon County Animal Shelter. Linda always felt a true calling to help unfortunate animals that could not help themselves.
Linda courageously fought lung cancer for 14 years like a warrior. Although her death certificate will show that she died from cancer, the cancer died when she did – so it’s just as fair to say she won the battle.
She is survived by her Daughter: Lorinda Beaman Lamken-Finnell (John Finnell) of Springfield, IL, Son: Robert (Michelle) Beaman of Taylorville, IL, Grandchildren: Travis, Jacob and Connor Lamken all of Springfield, IL; Zachery, Bryce (Craig) and Heather Beaman all of Taylorville, IL, Nephews: Ronnie Cooper and Steve Cooper, Niece: Deb Cooper of Springfield, IL, Susan Fitzgerald of Oklahoma, Cousin: Carol Brown of Taylorville, IL. She was preceded in death by her parents, a daughter in infancy: Theresa Beaman, Brother: Ronald Cooper and half-brother Bill Crevits.
