Patricia Lorraine Beachum, 82, of Virginia Beach passed away January 17, 2021. Pat or “Patsy” as she was known by her family and friends was born in Kingsport, TN to Talmadge and Byrd Martin in 1938.

When Patsy Martin was two, her father relocated the entire family which consisted of Byrd, Patsy & her two older sisters Dorothy and Jane to Virginia leaving his railroad job behind for work in the shipyards. They would end up settling in the Kempsville area of Virginia Beach. Talmadge would eventually make his way to employment at the new Princess Anne High School.

Patsy herself was among the first graduating class of Princess Anne High School moving over from Kempsville High to accommodate the opening of the new high school, where she would meet Joe Beachum, fellow student and future father of her four children.

She was very proud to be a member of the Cavaliers alumni as they have continued to gather regularly in between class reunions.

Pat had been retired years earlier from the Virginia Beach City school system. She also had been a member of the Order of the Eastern Star. Pat was ahead of her time reinventing herself as a single woman in the early 80s with her own independent trucking company.

She always enjoyed entertaining, gardening and thoroughly enjoyed her time spent traveling the world in years previous. Always being remembered for that special little gift or thought she would surprise us all with when we least expected it.

She is survived by her four children: Joe B. Beachum II, D. Barry Beachum, Curtis B. Beachum, and Patti Jo Beachum-Guiter; three grandchildren: Kelsey Beachum-Yates, Curtis Beachum Jr., and Dillion Beachum; two great grandchildren: Tinleigh May & Tripp Yates.

She will always be remembered as a loving mother, grandmother and friend and will greatly be missed.

I had many delicious holidays meals prepared by Pat and she gave me several thoughtful and unique gifts. She had a real talent for that. She was a very pretty woman with beautiful hair. She made you feel very welcome in her home. One of the best things she ever gave me was a beautiful loving daughter-in-law. My condolences to her daughter and son! Dixie Earhart
