Beulah was proud of her meager beginnings and often remarked how happy life was back then. Beulah spent many hours researching genealogy and family history. She enjoyed gardening at home and the church, sewing, quilting, crocheting and ceramics.
Beulah's passion was her family, brothers, sisters, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was someone you could always go to and count on.
