Honored by cousins Grace Carlson & Family and friend Belle DeKoff
Beulah Lettie Gustafson was born on June 21, 1928 in New Haven, Kentucky. Raised in America’s heartland, Beulah followed her stepfather into business, working with him at the country clubs he managed in Indiana and Illinois. It was while working at one of the these clubs that Beulah met the lover of her life, Carl Gustafson. Beulah and Carl married in 1962, and, when Carl retired, the couple moved to Cape Coral, Florida where he could play golf year round.
Beulah was a friendly, vital, active woman. She loved entertaining, music, and shopping, and she loved spending time with friends and family. Although she never had children of her own, Beulah enjoyed being around young people. In her final home, Beulah adopted the four young children of her caregivers, serving as their surrogate grandmother. Beulah died in 2010, but, as a WLF Angel, Beulah will live on, giving to others through the Women’s Legacy Fund.
