Carol Marie Beyer


Carol Marie Beyer passed away April 16, 2023, in Hays, Kansas.


Carol was born May 24, 1941 to Rudolph and Mary (Rohr) Ruder in Hays, Kansas. She married Joseph Beyer on September 4, 1961. Through this union they had one son and two daughters.


Carol graduated from Girls Catholic High School, was a lifelong member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, and was a member of the Daughters of Isabella.


Carol had a long work history in the grocery business, starting at her parent’s grocery store, Ruder’s Grocery and Meat Lockers, and then at CO Mammels in the meat department. She then worked at St. Anthony Hospital in housekeeping until she retired. After a short illness, Carol moved into Cedarview/Homestead Assisted Living until she passed away.

She loved playing Bingo, board games, and cards with her family and friends, especially when her husband, Joe, was alive. She also enjoyed traveling to the casinos and playing slots. Carol was also a fan of movies, particularly westerns, especially Clint Eastwood and John Wayne. She was also very fond of magazines, particularly ones with food and creative ideas. Carol especially enjoyed dining out with her sister Debbie and visiting her brother Rich and sister-in-law Sharon when they took her to appointments. She also spoke to her brother Kenneth (Jim) by phone often.


Carol was very fond of having her hair and nails done and shopping. Carol loved going to the Volga German weddings and events as she lived in Hays her entire life; she was often joined by her siblings and their spouses, including her brother Gerald and sister-in-law Anita, before they passed away.


Carol spoke to her children very frequently and always looked forward to their visits back to Hays. She was very happy that she was able to see her grandchildren and great-grandchildren arrive before she passed. Carol was happy and loved life.


She is survived by her son, Robert (Cindy) Beyer; daughters Pam (Lance) Jones and Laurie (Dennis) Charbonneau, one brother, Richard (Sharon) Ruder and one sister, Deborah Weber; six grandchildren, Brandon (Alyssa) Charbonneau; Brett (Bri) Charbonneau and great granddaughter Ember; Ryan (Dani) Jones; Kalaya (Bonifacio) Hernandez and great grandson Ezra; Shane Beyer, and Ky Beyer; as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.


She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, and brothers Kenneth (Mary Ellen) Ruder, and Gerald (Anita) Ruder.
