Beulah was like family to us. She was friends with our parents when I was young, and many years later she evolved into "Aunt Beulah"and became a part of our family. After Ralph's death she joined us for many holiday dinners (often in charge of the mashed potatoes & gravy). Boy did she love to be social - always willing to go places and visit people. She often made sure to stop and see me when I was home for a visit. I learned from one of her many stories how she became a welder during the war and worked at a job as a real "Rosie the Riveter". I was impressed that this kind and sweet lady was also tough and strong! May she Rest In Peace.

i had the pleasure of seeing Ms Beulah almost every day at work. She was such a character! You never knew what mood she would be in, but she always smiled at me in the end. I have truly missed her. Such a sweet lady. I am so sorry for your loss, and ours.

Beulah and I were cousins and played together as children. I was born the Oct before she arrive in February. We always had fun and lots of laughs. The last time I saw her we went on a tour of our old stomping and grounds around Iuka and the old Greendale store. Lots of memories I hold dear. Rest Well my friend. Be at Peace
