The October 2017 Assembly of Kinlein is dedicated to Betty Beauchamp 
Betty Beauchamp 1940-2017
Kinleiner Betty Beauchamp, administrator, author, benefactor for the profession, companion and eternal lover of all things to do with bears, died April 16, 2017.  The Profession of Kinlein will greatly miss Betty.  She displayed an uncommon common sense. She was a master at focusing until she accomplished her purposes and those were many. She did not talk about her plans or the accomplishments in her work and play and charity. She was the actor, the doer, in the completing of a project and no one would know until it was presented, done. No fanfare.  She brought the same tenacity in support of the profession of kinlein, its founder Lucille Kinlein, assistance to students and welcome to clients. The profession is honored to dedicate the 2017 Assembly of Kinlein to the memory of Betty Beauchamp.
