On December 5, 2023, our dear Mother, Carolyn Lee Beale, transitioned from death to eternal life with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Carolyn was an active Mount Gilead Missionary Baptist Church member, serving in the Intercessory Prayer Ministry, Vacation Bible School, and Sunday School and assisting in the New Members Ministry. Her beautiful life will forever be cherished in the lives of her husband, Amos Lee Beale; her children, Cassandra Lee Bowser, Gerri R. Huggins, Cheryl A. Boone, Alonzo Lee Beale; step-daughter Amie Barrett and a host of grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her mother, Gertrude Burton, and her brother, Van Burton, will also cherish her memories. Our mother was a true jewel; indeed, her life sparkled well as she made it a habit to tell anyone and everyone about Jesus, who was the head of her life. Indeed, our Mom will be missed, but we know that we will see her again one day in heaven when we all get together. The family would like to express our thanks for the excellent help and care given by Hospice at Thalia Gardens Rehabilitation and Nursing.
