Anne “Kathy” Beatty

Born in Passaic, N.J., she was the daughter of the late Gregory Listner and Ann (Hasten) Listner who lives in Monroe Township, N.J.

Kathy was a college counseling administrator at Westtown School where she was referred to as “Teacher Kathy” by the students for more than 30 years before retiring the spring of 2017. Her passion was working with students to help them achieve their goals. She was a longtime member of St. Patrick Catholic Church in Kennett Square where she attended regularly with her son Gregory during his school years.

Kathy was all about her family. She was the epitome of a “soccer mom,” coaching her son Gregory’s SCCSA soccer team during his youth years. She volunteered at almost all of Gregory’s activities, from High School band trips to New York to his soccer matches and everything in between. Her commitment to Gregory continued into his college years at Bucknell University where she never missed a soccer event.

In recent years, Kathy loved being a grandmother and spending time with her granddaughters who called her Mimi.

Survivors include in addition to her mother and husband, one son, Gregory Beatty and his wife Alexis Ogdie-Beatty of Philadelphia; her two granddaughters, Elysia and Elina; and one brother, Greg Listner and his wife Gloria of Kendall Park, N.J.
