On Monday morning, April 10, 2017, the Lord called his daughter Beatrice W. Vaughan to her heavenly home. She was born on February 21, 1940 in South Norfolk County, VA to Moses and Ethel Williams. Friends and family called her Beulah. Beulah attended George Washington Carver High School. Upon finishing her education, she met and married Thomas Vaughan. They were married for 58 years. Beulah retired from Chesapeake Public Schools after more than 30 years of hard work and dedication. She was always going the extra mile to assist others and putting them first. Beulah loved the Lord and was a constant prayer warrior. She drew strength from reading the Word and imparted her strength on others. Beulah was an active member of Macedonia Baptist Church and enjoyed serving the Lord as an usher until she became immobile. She is predeceased by her parents, Moses N. Williams Sr and Ethel D. Williams; her husband, Thomas Vaughan; her sister, Annie Rudder, Mary Williams, Gladys Freeman and Helen Williams; her brother, Moses Williams Jr. and Albert Williams. She leaves to cherish her memory four children, Gloria, Michael, Toney (Shelley) and Kimberly; two brothers in-law, Melvin Lee Vaughan (Catherine) and Larry Donnell Vaughan (Hattie); four sisters in-law, Luch Mae Ellsworth, Ella Marie Beale (Haywood), Deloris Simpson (Charlie), LaFrances Roberts; one loving aunt, Ida Mae Davis; seven grandchildren, Kiesha Bethea (Domnick), Kyana Scott (Juan), Shanikqua Gardner, Rashad Gardner (Danica), Toney “TJ” Vaughan, Ashley Vaughan and Andre Vaughan; She also leaves eight great great grandchildren, Domnick Jr, Dorian, Darius, Janiya, Jalayah, Elijah, Troy, Braylen and a host of nieces, nephews and cousins. Special thanks to the family, Sylvia Freeman and Lasharita Roundtree for their love and support. To my loving friends Pinkie Lawerence and Linda Hughes you were both always by my side. Truly you will be missed. Special thanks to Vanessa Cradle, (CNA) the loving staff at Beth Shalom Rehabilitation Center and Hospice Team. Thank you for a job well done.

Linda To the Family. Losing a love one in death is a trying time for all. I just want to give the family some comfort and hope from God's word, which gives the assurance that one day we will see our dear love ones again. ACTS 24:15 And I have a hope toward God, which hope these(men) themselves also entertain, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteuos and the unrighteous. Certainly while we await for these wonderful promise, I hope the family truly find comfort knowing this wonderful hope from Gods word.

Nikki I'm truly sorry for the loss of your loved one. May you gain comfort at this difficult time, and May the future promise by God at Revelation 21:4 help you cope. No more crying, death.. The former things have passed away
