She will be remembered for her ever present and quick sense of humor as well as her compassion and willingness to help those less fortunate. The loving and caring staff at Eastwood Nursing Center along with her family helped Beulah feel safe, well loved and cared for in her final weeks, days and hours.

As her body weakened, her spirit flourished and taught us all with her usual grace, class and dignity how to move through the many challenges she faced in her life. She will indeed be missed by many yet for those who grew to know her, you will understand when we say "we hope you dance", mom.

Her children, Steven, Jeanne, and Barbara and her husband Bob, along with her grandchildren Erich, his wife Wendy; Jesse, his wife Shauna; Wheatley, Elizabeth and her great grandson, Deagan, will join together with friends and loved ones in celebration of her life on Saturday, March 1, 2008 at the Canale-Tonella Funeral Home in Marquette.
