Beverly (Uren) Gurr

Beverly “Joan” (Uren) Gurr, 79, of Renton, and formerly of Issaquah, passed away Dec. 22, 2012, surrounded by her family, at Valley General Hospital, Renton.

She was born Nov. 15, 1933, in Rockville Center, N.Y., to Arthur and Yolanda (Dawson) Uren. She graduated from Amityville High School, Amityville, N.Y., in 1951.

She married George Gurr in 1952 and they were married for 23 years. From this union, seven children were born and, aside from the Lord, her children were her loves!

Joan received her LPN degree from Treasure Valley CC, Ontario, Ore., in 1974; she worked in the nursing profession for more than 20 years.

She is survived by her children Karen (Dan) Yraguen, Fruitland, Idaho; Steven Gurr, Bonney Lake; Susan (Dave) Miller, Yakima; Donna (Steve) Hull, Kent; Heather (Jim) Macfarlane, Fruitland, Idaho; Barbara Donohue, Issaquah; and Tom (Julie) Gurr, Sammamish; 15 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren; brother Bill Uren, Bellevue; and two nieces and two nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her sister Donna Uren Toughlian.

A celebration of her life will be at 6 p.m. Feb. 17 at Overcomer Covenant Church, 33415 Military Road S., Auburn, WA 98001.

Goodbye, Dear Mother. You will be loved forever and missed every day, but we rejoice that you are in the presence of the Lord and are saving a place for your family! GOODBYE, DEAR!

“My life is being given as an offering to God, and the time has come for me to leave this life. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now, a crown is being held for me — a crown for being right with God. The Lord, the judge who judges rightly, will give the crown to me on that day — not only to me but to all those who have waited with love for him to come again.” — 2 Tim 4:6-8
