    Beulah Mae was a member of the First Baptist Church in Carrier Mills and a long time member of the former Comfort Rebekah Lodge No. 48 also in Carrier Mills where she held various positions in the lodge.
    Her most treasured gift was that of family and especially her grand-girls. Her favorite quote was when all else is gone you’ve still got your family.
