Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Jan 28 2002 - Beulah Beryl Abney, the only child of Fred and Mary Adkins, was born November 5, 1908, five miles west of Deepwater. Beulah died on January 9, 2002, at Westwood Nursing Home. She lived her entire life in Henry County, attending the Independence grade school. She rode a horse to Deepwater to attend high school for two years. She was baptized into the Deepwater Brethren Church in 1925. Beulah and Frank Abney were married December 22, 1926. To this union was born one son, Howard Devere. Beulah and Frank farmed for 30 years, on a farm adjoining the farm where she was born. In 1956 they turned the farming over to their son and moved to Clinton. Beulah was a homemaker her entire live, except for a short time when she worked at the Forrest-Jolly Nursing Home as a cook, after they moved to Clinton. She then spent several years caring for husband, Frank, after he suffered a stroke. She also volunteered later at the Clinton Senior Center. She thoroughly enjoyed her family, her friends and working in her garden and always had seasonal flowers ready to share with her church. She and Frank enjoyed fishing trips to Table Rock Lake with their camper. Beulah was a deaconess in the Brethren Church. She always found something good to say about everything and everybody, never a harsh or unkind word. Beulah is survived by her son, Howard, and wife, Wilma; four grandchildren, Gary W. Abney of Belmont, Michigan, Thomas Keith Abney, Marvin Dale Abney and Susan Carter, all of Clinton; six great-grandchildren and six great-great-grandchildren. One great-granddaughter, Rebecca Joy Abney, preceded her in death. Funeral services were held at the Vansant-Mills Chapel on Saturday, January 12. Burial was in the Englewood Cemetery, Clinton.
