She was baptized and confirmed at the Rossville Presbyterian Church and attended school in Rossville and Waterville High School. After her schooling she worked as a hired girl for several area families. On January 2, 1936 Beulah married Beacher Bollman at the Methodist Church Parsonage in Monona. They farmed together for a number of years with Beulah helping on all the chores as well as hauling livestock in their trucks. In 1956 they moved to Waterville,IA where they operated Bollman's DX Station until moving to Cresco, IA in 1958 and opening another service station by the same name. She was an active worker at both of the stations and while in Cresco she also began driving school bus. Beulah and Beacher moved to Van Horne, IA in 1967 where she continued to drive school bus as well as doing cleaning at the school and housekeeping work for families throughout the area. They retired in 1985 and moved back to Allamakee County where they have lived in Ion, in rural Harpers Ferry, ever since.

Beulah was a member of the Methodist Church in most of the places they lived and was currently a member of Living Faith United Methodist Parish, Monona Center, and its Ruth Circle. She was an active member and former office holder of the American Legion Auxiliary in National, Cresco, and Harpers Ferry and the VFW Auxiliary in Cresco and Waukon.

Beulah and Beacher had traveled throughout a lot of the United States and enjoyed spending several winters together in Arizona. Above all else, her favorite times were those she spent with her family.
