Beulah Irene Remaley Ralph

Beulah Irene Remaley Ralph, 94, of Fleming Island, FL passed away November 19, 2019. Beulah was born and raised on a remote farm in South Beaver Township, Pennsylvania. She was the 6th of 10 children. Each new baby was assigned to the oldest sister available to take care of daily throughout childhood. Beulah was seven when she got her “baby.” At age 13 Beulah left home to work for a family in town so that she could attend public high school. In exchange for bed and board, Beulah served as housekeeper and nanny. It was in high school that Beulah blossomed into a poet. Upon graduation she was named the Poet Laureate of Lincoln High School, Ellwood City, PA. World War II drew Beulah into her most prolific period of writing poetry. It was her response to the shifting world as family and friends were deployed or relocated. After the war, Beulah married, built an accounting career, and raised a family with three boys, surrounded by a strong church community. The family moved to Florida in 1947. Beulah was of the Methodist faith and a member of Orange Park United Methodist Church. She was a volunteer for her church and community and wrote a book titled Missing You. Beulah is preceded by her loving husband, Richard J. Ralph; sons, Richard, Douglas and Bruce and siblings, Nellie, Elsie, Ethel, Ruth, Hazel, Charles, Edna, Everett and Geraldine. She is survived by her grandchildren, David S. Ralph (Alisa) and Richard Dean Ralph (Lori); great grandson, Michael A. Ralph (Paige); great great-granddaughter, Tylar M. Ralph and sister-in-law, Klara Remaley. Funeral services will be held at 11:00am, Tuesday, December 3, 2019 at Orange Park United Methodist Church with Dr. Charles Lever, Sr. officiating. The family will receive friends from 10:00am until service time. The family requests, in lieu of flowers donations be made to Community Hospice at www.communityhospice.com/give

She was my mentor. The person who would listen and only give advise when needed. She loved deeply and gave the best hugs. My life was truly better by her being in it. I will miss her smile and hand kisses.
