The family would like to thank Bertha Mathis for her years of devotion and care for Beulah.
Aunt Beulah was 10 yrs old when I was born and was my first baby sitter and life long mentor and role model. Her love of family has taught us all how to love one another. We will miss her. God bless Mindy and Diane for watching over and caring for her. Love, Jane
Mindy and family,
I know how much Aunt Beulah meant to all of you and how close you were. Praise God she is no longer in any pain and is basking in the glory of our Lord. Our deepest sympathy for your loss. Blessings to all of you.
