Beulah Gwendoline Frasure, 96, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, September 19, 2023.
Born in Durham, NC, she was the daughter of the late Lawrence O’Shields and Eva Waldrop Trotter.
Beulah dedicated a significant portion of her life to the Textile Industry, where she served as a skilled weaver until her retirement. Her commitment to her work was a testament to her strong work ethic and unwavering dedication.
After her retirement, Beulah continued to make a difference in the lives of others by entering the field of caregiving, a vocation she pursued passionately until the age of 83. Her selflessness, kindness, and caring nature left a lasting impact on everyone she cared for.
Beulah was a member of Northwest Baptist Church and frequently attended Gap Creek Baptist Church. Her faith was a guiding light in her life, and she lived out her beliefs through her actions, embodying the principles of love, kindness, and generosity.
Beulah was a wonderful mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She showered her family with love and support, instilling in them strong family values and a deep faith in God. Her legacy of compassion and love will live on through the generations she leaves behind.
One of Beulah’s passions was her love for Purple Roses, a symbol of her elegance and grace. Just as she cherished these flowers, she cherished the beauty in life and the people she held dear.
Beulah’s life was a testament to the power of love, faith, and selflessness. She will be remembered as a shining example of a life well-lived, and her memory will forever remain in the hearts of all who were fortunate to know her.
She is survived by daughter, Diane (Ray) Hudgins; grandchildren, Jackie Carter (George), Kathy Russell (Jeff), and Jerry “Jay” Lark, Jr. (Whitney), eleven great grandchildren; 28 great great grandchildren; one great great great grandchild; two sisters, Barbara Sloan and Naomi Reynolds.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her daughter, Louise Evett; five grandchildren; and son-in-law, Johnny Evett.
