Daughter of Bayard R. and Lydia (Potter) Johnson, Beulah went with her parents to Fairhaven, Washington (now Bellingham). After her mother died she went to Frankfort, Michigan where she was raised by her uncle, Samuel A. Potter. She was then known as Beulah Potter.

She was educated at the Frankfort High School, Benzonia Academy, Benzie County Normal School and Ferris Institute. She was a school teacher for a short time and also was a professional musician.

In 1917 she went to the Corregidor, Philippine Islands to visit her sister, Mrs. Lynn Vane and remained there working as a school teacher until in 1922 she went to Fort Casey, Washington, again to be with her sister whose husband had been transferred there.

She graduated from the Western Washington Normal School and resumed teaching, in King County and on Whidbey Island.

She was survived by a brother, Bertrand L. Johnson of Melbourne, Florida; a sister, Mrs. Lynn P. Vane of Coupeville, Washington; and a foster-brother, Lorenzo A. Potter of Frankfort, Michigan.
