Kathleen Ireland: 84 of Des Moines, Iowa (formerly Denver, Co.) passed away peacefully on October 10, 2022.


She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was a pioneer for girls’ softball, being one of the first female coaches in West Des Moines. Kathi taught us to love God, family, and football; though, not specifically in that order. From her collection of precious moments dolls to her entourage of stuffed animals, she was truly one of a kind. We love her, we miss her, and we will hold her dear in our hearts.


She is preceded in death by her parents, Richard and Margaret Beaty.


She is survived by her husband, Carl and sister, (Dorothy) Gene Neal. Her children, Vicki (Randy) of Ankeny, Ia., Kati of Denver, Co., Amy of Ankeny, Ia., and Mike (Pam) of Ankeny, Ia. Her grandchildren Christy (Leighton), Randall (Sarah), Ashley (Todd), Nicole, Bailey, and Jimmy D. Her great-grandchildren Sam, Elijah, Joe, Aria, Hannah, Emma, Declan, and Brendan.
