BEESON (Brace), Anna Kingsley
Anna Kingsley Brace Beeson, b. January 17, 1943 in Austin, TX, died March 26, 2015 after a life of dedication to adventure, family, friends, and equestrian endeavors. Anna died peacefully after a 4 year battle with cancer. She graduated class of '61 at Austin High School, class of '66 at University of Texas at Austin, and worked as a programmer for the Texas State Comptroller's office until her retirement in 2011. Anna took her first horseback ride at age 4 and spent the next 68 making up for taking so long - winning numerous awards for eventing, including the 2012 USEA National Award IronMaster Trophy. Along the way she rescued and retrained 18 failed Thoroughbred racehorses for a new life in hunter/jumper, XC, and dressage. She is survived by her husband of 49 years, Richard Beeson, sister Mary Eleanor Brace Pitcairn, daughters Catherine Beeson, Ellen Beeson Zentner, grandchildren Ari and Zoe Fierer and many devoted friends. Anna was buried on Saturday March 28 at Eloise Woods Natural Burial Park in Cedar Creek, TX. She will be honored at the Pine Hill USEA Spring Horse Trial on April 11, where she spent countless hours competing and volunteering. Donations in Anna's name can be made to Thoroughbred racehorse rescue organizations at teamkeen.com, and canterusa.org.
