Beulah Martin, 91, a loving mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully at Mt. Carmel East Hospital in Columbus on Saturday, December 12, 2020.
Born and raised in Portsmouth, she was a daughter of the late Glancy and Maggie Kegley Neal. Also preceding her in death were her loving husband, Eugene “Beanie” Martin, two sons, Michael Eugene and Rick Lee Martin, who she devoted her whole life to, and her companion, Earnest Danes.
Beulah was a loving grandmother to Michael (Holly) Martin, Becky (Paul) Stapleton, Michelle (Justin) Bentley, Ericka Martin and Brian Goodman who she still considered one of her grandchildren till the very end. She was a great-grandmother to Breanna (Ben), Johnathan (Delynn), Justin, Brenden, Austin, Brison, Megan, Nicole, Madison and Matthew. Seven great-great grandchildren also survive, who she cherished and adored. Also, many nieces and nephews that will always remember her as Aunt Bootie and will miss her dearly.
Beulah graduated from East High School and was a wonderful school cook for the former Harding Elementary School for over 25 years. She was a member of North Moreland Christian Baptist Church of God.
Beulah spent her free time doing the things she loved, including cooking, crocheting and volunteering for many different organizations.
She led by example. There was never a job too large or too small that she would not tackle. Beulah was strong, determined and a fiercely independent woman.
We will miss her every day.
