Kath, as she was known to all loved ones, thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her family and watching her grandchildren grow. Over the years she opened her home to numerous foster children. Her other passions included spending time with friends and hunting down bargains at rummage sales.
In 1968 she graduated from the Academy of Notre Dame and went on to graduate with an Associates of Science from Belleville Area College.

After retiring from the airlines, she enjoyed working as an instructional aide at Belleville Area Special Services Cooperative and teacher’s aide at Belleville Township High School East. Kath also spent many years helping at the Apostolic Church of Belleville and was a beloved member of St. Peter’s Cathedral.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Leon Urban and Mary Lois, nee Truttmann, Biver; a son, Charles Beyer Jr.; and a sister, Joan Ott.
