LIFE SKETCH OF BEULAH STEELE STETTLERBeulah was born on February 22, 1925 in Monroe, Utah. Her parents were Ellis Jesse and Hannah Belle Steele. She had one older brother, Kenneth, and two younger brothers, Jay and Richard. She also had a twin sister, Beatrice who was a stillborn.Beulah lived in Emery and Carbon County until she was nine years old. Her father was employed as a teacher and later as a principal so they lived in the mining towns of Helper, Consumers, and Spring Canyon during the school year. During the summers the family would live in Midway. When Beulah was nine, her father took a cut in pay and moved the family back to Midway so the children could have a better place to live. Beulah had fond memories of the fun things she did as a young girl and a teenager in Midway. When the work was done she and her brothers would enjoy activities like wading in the pond or playing night games under the street light by her grandma’s house. As a teenager, Beulah was elected president of her freshman class. It was unusual for a girl to be voted in so this made her feel pretty special. She and Ken both were employed at Snyder’s Hot Pots (now called Homestead). It was prestigious to work there, because it was the best place in town. After graduating from high school in 1943, Beulah got a job at Hill Field where she was trained as a teletype operator. She attended two quarters at BYU, but her studies were cut short when she received a call that her dad was very ill. The family moved to Salt Lake City and Beulah moved home. The entire family worked to pay the bills. Beulah worked at Geneva Steel and later at Fort Douglas.Beulah met Floyd after being introduced by her cousin. After their wedding they moved to San Francisco for a short time and later to Logan. Once Floyd finished his schooling, the couple moved to Salt Lake City. While living in Salt Lake City, Beulah gave birth to four of her children; Larry (now called Tony), Brent, Gloria Jean (stillborn) and Mark.Floyd’s job took them to Ogden where they lived in several locations until they settled in a residence at Kingston Circle. That was when Linda joined the family. They lived at this home until their marriage came to an end in 1973. Beulah married Ron Baird in 1976. She sold her home and they lived in South Ogden and Washington Terrace until they divorced in 1981. Beulah worked for Dr. Way for many years. She did paperwork, insurances, and put the patients in the rooms. Beulah was kind and caring to those who brought their children to see Dr. Way. Even years after Dr. Way retired, people would remember Beulah and her kindness. Once Dr. Way retired, Beulah went to work for Dr. Leon White. She also started to volunteer at McKay-Dee Hospital as a pink lady. Beulah was baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints by her father when she was eight years old. Her membership in the church was very important to her and she remained involved and active throughout her life. Over the years, Beulah has had many church callings. She has served as a Sunday School teacher, a Primary teacher, in Stake Primary, and on Singles’ committees. She has been a teacher in Relief Society, a visiting teacher, and visiting teacher supervisor. Her favorite calling was serving in the library. She loved the contact she had with the ward members as they would come to the library and loved the opportunity to visit with them and brighten their day.November 2011 Beulah suffered from a serious stroke. Beth and Mark Stettler and their children were by Beulah’s side day and night during her three month illness. After spending months at the Legacy Inn, Beulah returned home. Her health quickly declined and on February 9, 2012 Beulah peacefully passed away. To Beulah, her family has been the most important thing in her life. She is survived by four living children who are all married; Linda and Eliot Hill, Mark and Beth Stettler, Brent and Terri Stettler, Tony and Jan Stettler. She has twelve grandchildren and nine great grandchildren whom she dearly loved. She is also survived by two brothers; Jay Steele and Richard Steele. She will be missed by her children, grandchildren, friends and surviving brothers. However, we are happy that she has now been reunited with her family that has gone before her. Funeral services will be held Tuesday February 14, at 11:00 AM at Leavitt’s Mortuary 836 36th Street, Ogden. Friends may visit family on Monday February 13, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM and prior to services Tuesday 10:00 to 10:45 AM at Levitt’s Mortuary.
