Beulah and her late husband Ellis were well known in the community for volunteering their time and efforts. When you entered her home you were always met with a smile and never left with an empty stomach. She will be fondly remembered as a loving, compassionate and caring wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and neighbour. After 13 years as founder of Hawkins’ Greenhouse, she retired and her favourite pastime was knitting. Family members will miss her socks, mitts, scarves and other requested creations.
