She was born July 23, 1924 in Hollister, North Carolina to the late Charlie Harris and Nancy Silver. She was educated in the Warren County School System, later employed by the Portsmouth Naval Hospital, and finally, a devoted homemaker for sixty-five years. Beulah was united in marriage to William Henry Ellis for sixty-five years, and of this union birthed six daughters, and one son. Beulah was a devoted member of Olive Grove Baptist Church.

Lisa To the family I offer my sincerest condolences. Here are two comforting thoughts from the Bible that I hope will bring your family some comfort. John 5:28, 29 tells us the resurrection hope is real and Revelation 21:3, 4 assures us of God’s promise that death will be done away with in the near future of mankind. For more comfort please go to JW.org

Donnell C. Alston, Alumni President, BTW Class of 1969 To Esther and family: May God grant you peace and comfort as you endure this trial of your faith. The grace of God will surely carry you through. Remember God's word: "And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God's love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow--not even the powers of hell can separate us from God's love." ~ Romans 8:38 (NLT) You have our prayers.
