Beulah made the decision to become a Christian and was baptized into Christ on the evening of her 100th birthday.

Beulah was a devoted wife for 58 years. She was a wonderful mother and grandmother.

The family would like to thank Good Shepherd Hospice for all they have done to take care of their grandma over the past 5 years. A special thank you to Pat, who was her hospice aid during this time. Thank you for making sure she was taken care of, for being someone she could depend on, and the special friendship that she felt with you. Another special thank you to a wonderful dear family friend, Darlene Lair, who was a faithful visitor and care-giver and helped lead our grandma to the decision to become a christian. You have been a huge help to the family, and have been a very loving, generous friend and caregiver to her. She loved you very much and enjoyed your visits, the meals you ate with her and the trips to Braum’s to get ice cream. Thank you all for loving and caring about our grandma and for being a part of her life.
