School Mourns Loss of Bev Katterman

Remembering Bev Katterman


Beverley Katterman, former co-owner of Montlake Drugs and Katterman’s Sand
Point Pharmacy and wife of the late Don B. Katterman, passed away on Thursday, May 28th. Katterman’s Pharmacy has been a mainstay in Seattle’s Sand Point neighborhood since 1965.

The Katterman family’s legacy to the UW School of Pharmacy lives on with the Pharmacy Alumni Association’s Annual Don B. Katterman Memorial Lecture. This year, the School celebrated the 30th anniversary of this event. Bev and her daughter, Anne, attended for a special tribute (pictured).

Throughout their life together, Bev and her husband worked hard to keep
their neighborhood pharmacies thriving as central members of their local

Bev also actively supported her husband’s endeavors to improve the practice
of pharmacy in the state of Washington. He was a mentor to countless
pharmacy students, a former president of the UW Pharmacy Alumni Association
and a former president and member of the Washington State Pharmacy
Association. She herself was active in many service organizations, including
the Children’s Orthopedic Hospital Guild and the Women’s Pharmacy Group.

A memorial service for Bev Katterman will take place on Saturday, May 30, at
2 p.m. at the University Baptist Church, 4554 12th NE in Seattle. A
reception will take place after the service in the church’s McAfee Parlor.
Remembrances may be given to Children’s Hospital and Regional Medical
