LEXINGTON, Ky. - Beulah M. Bell, age 88, of Lexington, Ky passed away on Sept. 10, 2013. Mrs. Bell was preceded in death by her husband of 54 years, Franklin D. Bell, and by five younger siblings.
She is survived by her son, Jeffrey (Marie) of Nolensville, TN, and two granddaughters, Lydia Nichole and Rachel Elizabeth Bell, of Knoxville, TN.
Beulah was born February 13, 1925 in Harrison County, the eldest child of Almond and May Lewis. A devoted wife and mother, she lived a lifetime of service to others, helping numerous family members and friends with needs both great and small. She was a member of Woodland Christian Church since 1958.
One of her lasting legacies is 42 years of volunteer service to Cardinal Hill Hospital where, among other things, she started and managed the hospital gift shop in order to raise money to buy hospital equipment. She served as President of the Hospital Auxiliary, and was an integral part of the hospital’s annual telethon. On a yearly basis, she procured enough donations of food from local businesses to support the army of telethon volunteers. In 1989 she was nominated for the LOV award by the Volunteer Center of the Bluegrass.
The family extends special thanks to the staff of Mayfair Manor for their years of care, support, and genuine friendship, and to the staff of Hospice of the Bluegrass for their guidance, support, and help in easing her transition.
Services will be held at 11 am on Friday, Sept. 13 at Milward- Southland, with burial in Lexington Cemetery.
Visitation will be Thursday evening 4-8 pm, and immediately prior to the service.
Memorial gifts may be sent to the Cardinal Hill Auxiliary or Hospice of the Bluegrass.
