Tribute to Anne Beahan
(Doll)
It is with great sadness and a
heavy heart we have to announce
the sudden and tragic passing of
Anne Beahan, Dublin Ireland on
the 3rd of October 2018. Anne was
a long time AVRO supporter, and
Recovery Industry advocate. She
will be greatly missed by her loving
husband Derek, daughter Catherine,
son Andrew and grandson Cathal
as well as her many friends and
everyone that knew her.
The moving funeral mass took place
in Anne and Derek’s home Parish
of St Michaels in Inchicore and it
was so well attended that not all
the congregation could fit inside the
church, a true testament to how well
liked and respected she was.
Known affectionately as Doll, she
was a regular at Industry events
and AVRO shows down through
the years and was well liked and
known to all. Mrs Beahan was also
very welcoming to new members
and their partners. Anne was the
matriarch behind Derek Beahan
Recovery, former AVRO First
Lady and Derek’s right hand
woman. Always there with her
warm smile, big laugh, a kind
word and a dirty joke she had
many friends within AVRO and
was a strong Industry ally and an
important backer in Region 15.
opinions were heard.
After helping Derek establish
Derek Beahan Recovery in
the 80’s from nothing, while
also taking care of her young
family she remained active in
the business and was a great
sounding board for the many
ideas and initiatives Derek
introduced during his tenure as
Region 15 Chairman and later as
AVRO President. Anne also spoke
out on behalf of the partners of
Recovery Operators and made
sure their voices, concerns and
Derek and his family would
like to thank everyone for the
overwhelming and wonderful
support they have received at this
very sad time.
Anne was a keen gardener,
dedicated shopper and lived to care
for her family, whom she adored.
A well respected, bubbly and fun
character Anne will be greatly
missed. The stories and memories
are endless, and Anne was one of
a kind, may she Rest in Peace – Si
