Preceded in death by brothers Bob, George and Lamont, sisters Louise and Pauline, and grandson Steven Cash.

Stricken with polio from an epidemic at age two, Beulah valiantly persevered her handicap and exceeded her life expectancy by 26 years. Beulah learned from her mother to survive in a world without limitations and became independent at every turn in her life. Instead of home schooling, she graduated from South High School, attended U of U and went on to graduate from LDS Business College. During World War II, Beulah supervised the Food Rationing Division in Salt Lake. She then worked for 20 years at the LDS Church Offices. She married Donald E. Cash in 1943 and they had two young children when he died unexpectedly Jan. 10, 1960. She married William Wayne in 1962 and later solemnized it in the Salt Lake Temple. Together they built one of the first homes tailored for wheelchair use where they shared their remaining years in a sanctuary of love and service. She will be remembered for her elegance, her smile, and her courage in the face of adversity.

Beulah wishes to thank her aides for their tender patience, her friends for their unwavering support, her family for their love and security, and God for her wonderful life and her compassionate death.
