Beatrice Marie Novotny Hanley West, daughter of Marie

Kosour and Ferdinand Novotny, was born on January 3, 1926

in Havelock, Nebraska. On Friday, July 22, 2022 she died

peacefully with her family present; she was 96 years old.

Bea lived an incredibly full life. She traveled across the

Atlantic via ship twice before her tenth birthday. She spent

her formative years in a tiny village in Czechoslovakia with her

mother’s family before returning to the states at the outbreak

of World War II, speaking no English. She always said her time

in Moravia was what shaped her into the person she was. She

was married twice. First, to William Hanley, with whom she

had three children, and then to Gene West, with whom she

enjoyed her golden years, traveling extensively.

It was in her forties that her passion for painting really took

off and she spent over fifty years developing her work and

becoming a truly masterful porcelain and oil painter. Over the

years, her home and the homes of her loved ones were filled

with her beautiful pieces. In her later years, Bea also taught

classes and cherished the time she was able to share her skills

with others.

Bea was engaged in many charities during her life in both

California and Oklahoma. She was a member of St. Paul’s

episcopal church in Claremore, Oklahoma.

Bea is preceded in death by her beloved husband, Gene West,

and by her daughter, Christine Bewley.

She is survived by her sons Philip and Mark Hanley, son-inlaw Ralph Bewley, grandchildren Jeff Bewley and Jennifer,

Kristen and Hannah Hanley, and two great-grandchildren,

Henry and Lucy Bewley.

INEZ WITH FAMILY

INEZ

Below is the Facebook article Heather, her granddaughter, posted on Inez Herman:


It's not an easy thing to talk about those who have passed. But here is my attempt. My grandmother passed away this past Sunday in her sleep. As many know and some don't, there have been four of us living with and taking care of her for the past few years. Between cancer, dementia and the hardships of life, it was not easy for any of us. But especially not for her. Despite that, in those moments of clarity when she would know who you were, she would always call you her special pet name and say she loved you. Inez was 82 and in her own words, a tough old broad. It hasn't settled in for us as a family. But we know she is with her beloved husband John who most surely told her 'Well it took you long enough. I've been haunting this house for years waiting for you!' Our happiness comes to us in knowing she is no longer in pain and her mind is clear and her heart full.

I'm going to miss you Bama, you and your silly toothless smile and your insistence that I shouldn't wear red lipstick or that Heath needed a haircut. Your silly jokes and our banter will stay with me forever. And I hope it stays with you as well.
