Beulah graduated from Greenup High School in Greenup, IL in 1942. She married Leland “Paul” Bartlett on September 9, 1945 at Montrose, IL.

She worked at Ettlebrick Shoe Factory, Greenup, IL. Beulah and Paul owned and operated a Service and Filling Station in Montrose, IL before moving to Willow Springs, MO in 1949. She worked at Conway-Winters Shoe factory and Willow Health Care, Willow Springs, MO. Beulah was a charter member of Pine Creek Extension Club and volunteered at MUNCH.

Beulah attended Solid Rock Baptist Church, Willow Springs, MO. She received Christ as her savior at “The Bluff Hole” at Pine Creek during a revival at the church.

Beulah loved her family, friends, knitting, crocheting, tatting, reading and putting jigsaw puzzles together. She enjoyed watching her hummingbirds and other birds who visited her feeders.

She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, friend and adopted mother by many! She always had a loving kindness in her heart for each and every person she met.

Beulah will be missed, but we find comfort in knowing she has donned her angel wings and joined her loved ones in Heaven and will be watching over us each day until we meet again.

The family respectfully requests that donations be made to the American Heart Association in her honor, in lieu of floral arrangements. Online condolences may be sent to www.evansfh.com.
