Beulah Louise Prestipino, 92, of Richmond, went to be with her Lord and Savior on May 15, 2020.

Beulah lived a long, happy and inspirational life dedicated to Christ and her family. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Beulah was a lifelong member of Hardy Central Baptist Church, where she taught Sunday school for many years and sang in the choir until she was 80.

She served as Treasurer and Director of Bridgebuilders Prison Ministry for more than two decades and went weekly to minister to and share her love for a God of redemption and second chances with the inmates. Beulah opened her heart and her home to many friends and relatives throughout the years and served as a loving foster mother for the County of Henrico for over 10 years. Despite suffering from polio, Beulah overcame her mobility limitations and went on to live her best life.

Beulah was a 2nd mom to me, and a dear and beloved friend as well. I will always remember her smile and and a song in her heart. Over the years I valued her wisdom and friendship. She loved her family which over the years included many foster children as well. I will miss her, my heart grieves her loss but rejoices that she has gone to be with her Lord and Savior. To family, let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Mrs. Prestipino while at the Laurels of University Park and she was such a delight. She was always smiling and talking and always brought a smile to my face whenever “Jean Luke” came to style her hair. I’ve also had the pleasure of meeting Janet and Keith and they are amazing people. I’m so sorry for your loss and may God help your family through this difficult time. As always, my prayers and love are with your family.
