She was the youngest of nine children, six brothers and two sisters. During her sophomore year in high school, her family moved to Buffalo. This allowed her father to help her uncle, who was blind, run a well drilling business. While she was in high school, Beulah developed a great friendship with Carol Lane. During that time, Beulah was introduced to Carol’s brother, Perry. Eventually, Perry won her heart. She graduated from high school on May 8, 1953. On May 31, Perry and Beulah were married at the First Baptist Church Parsonage. “Perry convinced me that we would have a good, long-life together.” Beulah said with a smile. “And we did. He was a wonderful husband and selfless father.” Sadly this past November, after 61 years of marriage, Perry passed away. Shortly after the Lane’s were married, Beulah joined the local VFW Auxiliary. Beulah was elected as the District President for three different terms. During this time, she was also appointed as State Chairman. The ladies of the Auxiliary were talking about nominating her for State Guard, but she had to decline the position, due to her pregnancy. The Lane’s were blessed had two children. Terry is a firefighter in Buffalo and Lisa lives in Long Lane, where she is a middle school teacher. Beulah has seven beautiful grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. The Lane’s lived a wonderful life on their 105-acre farm where they raised sheep, hogs and one cow. They loved the farm life. One day, Perry decided it was time to spend winters where the weather was nicer. From 1980 until 2000, the couple would travel to Yuma, Ariz. in November and remain there until April. They made many new friends and treasure the time spent there. Beulah spent much of her life as a loving mother and helping Perry on the farm. Even though she was very busy, Beulah always made time to help out with the PTA. She was a member of the Harmony Hustlers, a local group who made quilts, lap robes and cancer bandages. She has always found joy in dedicating her life for others. A few months ago, Beulah became a Colonial Springs family. She enjoys socializing and taking part in various activities with the other ladies and having a good time. Most importantly, she loves her family dearly and puts them first in her life. Thank you Beulah! Are you a caring individual who would like to assist in caring for the elderly? Colonial Springs Healthcare Center has opportunities in its volunteer and nursing program.
