Vicki, Johnna & Jo, I am so sorry for the loss of your Mother. I was not able to come to the funeral to see you girls. I do however want you all to know I was very fond of your Mom & Dad. They entrusted you girls in my hands to babysit you all when they would go out. I always enjoyed being with you and so happy I had the chance to take care of you all. I am sending my Love to each one of you.

Girls, I remember my friend and neighbor Beulah, the memories flow as if it were yesterday. I last saw your mom when she was at the airport, it was like old home week, she was a wonderful friend and neighbor on Thornberry Dr., I loved watching her watching the three of you, she loved you so. She will be truly missed by every one who knew and loved her. Connie Toon

Beulah was my friend in grade school and high school. Always smiling and full of life. She later worked for my husband's business, Dale Sale Company, and we were immediately friends again. Loved her beautiful red hair! I'm not able to attend service because of bronchitis - but will be praying for her family. God Bless all of you.

In Christ,

Reverend Feagan and Ruth Feagan

I have wonderful memories of Beulah singing in the choir, teaching Sunday School classes and Vacation Bible School. She loved to laugh and had one of those infectious laughs that you could not ignore. I'm so happy that she is now singing and rejoicing with her Lord in Heaven.

Beulah was my mom's best friend. She helped me through the tough choices when mom got dementia. She was always there when I needed her. She always had a good spirit through her own illnesses. She will be missed.
