Marjorie Maxine (Cobb) Beavers, 92, of Kingston, went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on July 3, 2016, surrounded by her family.
She was born the daughter of the late John and Mabel (McCann) Cobb in Lewis County, Kentucky, on Nov. 27, 1923.
On Sept. 17, 1942, she married her husband, Richard Beavers, who preceded her in death in 1995.
She is survived by daughter, Jeanne (Barry) Bennett of Kingston; grandsons, Jonathan (Carmel) Bennett of Circleville and David (Jennifer) Bennett of Lancaster; and great-granddaughters, Brianna Gillespie, Grace Bennett and Elizabeth Bennett.

She was a faithful member of Kingston United Methodist Church and United Methodist Women.
She enjoyed writing poems and short stories. In 2012, she published a book of her writings in conjunction with her grandsons entitled Cedar Grove and Other Memories: The Collected Works of Marjorie Beavers.
