Bevis, Sarah Janette (Jan) Welsh
Born April 2, 1929, in Tallapoosa County, Alabama, to Homer Bentley Welsh and Ethel Laney Welsh, Jan passed away suddenly but peacefully in her home in Phoenix, Arizona, on September 12, 2016. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 69 years, J.J. Bevis. Jan retired in 2000 from a long and successful career in banking. She loved her customers and banking friends and was an engaged, loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Before moving to Arizona, she was an active volunteer and supporter of Latham United Methodist Church in Huntsville, Alabama. After moving to Arizona in 2014, she quickly became involved with outreach activities at the Episcopal Church of the Nativity in Scottsdale. She is survived by her daughter, Jennie Bevis Dobbins (Mark), granddaughters Sarah Elizabeth Banks (Joe), Laura Bevis Dobbins (Christina), and great-grandchildren Jonathan Welsh Banks and Katherine Murray-Dobbins. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends. A celebration of life will be held at 10:30 AM on Monday, October 3 at the Episcopal Church of the Nativity in Scottsdale, AZ. Should you wish, memorials may be made to the Episcopal Church of the Nativity (22405 North Miller Road, Scottsdale, AZ 85255) or to Latham United Methodist Church (109 Weatherly Road, SE, Huntsville, AL 35803). Arrangements entrusted to Messinger Pinnacle Peak Mortuary.
