This week, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) honored Ross and Marianna Kistler Beach on the U.S. Senate Floor. Marianna recently passed away, and her late-husband Ross Beach – who passed away in 2010 – were residents of Hays, Kan., for more than 60 years before moving to Lawrence, Kan., in 2000. The devoted couple was well-known and well-loved for their acts of service and kindness to others. Because of Marianna and Ross Beach, numerous Kansans have been inspired through the arts, and individuals with disabilities and their families have lived healthier, more productive lives.
