Beverly A. Lash

September 30, 1939 - May 29, 2021

Beverly A. Lash, Overbrook, died Saturday, May 29th, 2021, at Midland Hospice House in Topeka following complications from a fall.  She was 81.

Bev was born September 30, 1939, in Norwich, to Carl A. and Grace (Harrison) Oyler.  She graduated from Norwich High School in 1957, and attended Emporia State Teachers College before becoming a Certified Professional Secretary.   Most of her career was spent in the Wichita Regional Office of the United States Postal Service, but in later years she worked for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Rogers, Arkansas.

Bev married the love of her life, Joe Lash, in 1981 in Benton County, Arkansas.  Bev and Joe lived for many years on Beaver Lake in Arkansas, where Bev overcame her lifelong fear of water and learned to waterski.  They traveled extensively in the US, but when they weren’t travelling their home was always a welcoming Qzark get-away for family and friends and a chance to enjoy some of Bev’s great cooking.  

Never one to be bored, Bev had many interests.  She loved to spend time with her family, read, play the piano, paint, bake and crochet. Most of all she loved to dance with Joe.

After leaving Beaver Lake, Bev and Joe divided their time between Texas in the winter and Colorado in the summer before settling in Arizona.  Bev returned to Wichita in 2005 following Joe’s death, where she lived until 2019 when she moved to Brookside Assisted Living in Overbrook. 

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Joe, and her brother Carl.  She is survived by a step-daughter Cindy Lash (Gary Hug), Scranton; niece Kandee Hickman (Jason), Mission; nephew S. Corey Oyler (Maria), Wichita; step-grandson Justin Ryan, Omak, WA; step-great niece Malia Hickman, Wichita; great niece and nephew Natalie and Ryan Oyler, Wichita; and many beloved cousins and their families who enriched her life.

Inurnment and  graveside services will take place at Upchurch Cemetery in Norwich at a later date.
