Beulah May Vick of Orchard, Texas passed peacefully on March 16, 2021 surrounded by family at the age of 95. Beulah was born in Katy, Texas to the late Omer and Elfreda Poorman (Aylor). Preceding her in death: her husband of 55 years, Alfred Emil Vick, her son Alfred Donald Vick, and her brother Omer F. Poorman. She will be sadly missed by her sister Kathryn E. Bowden of Orchard, daughters Merry Sue Hajdik of Orchard, Peggy Jane Key of Hemsby, England, and Sally May Mahler of Macon GA, 9 grandchildren, ten great grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Our matriarch has passed. Beulah was a strong woman with a fierce determination, a drive for perfection, was generous to a fault, and had a deep loyalty for her family. She was renowned for her helping hand and advice. Beulah and the love of her life, Al, immersed themselves into different projects and mastered them. They were always on an adventure. A true oilfield wife, she followed her husband all over the world, living in third world countries before the invention of the computer and before telephone calls were affordable.
Beulah attended Blinn College after graduating from Orchard High School. She raised her daughters and granddaughters to be independent women and idolized her son and her grandsons. As she grew older one of her favorite activities was keenly watching her great grandchildren play. She would always comment on how smart and clever they were.
Her favorite colors were red and black.
Her favorite bird was a hummingbird.
She lives on through all of her family-you can see her when her great granddaughter clicks her tongue at people and the way we all raise one eyebrow when told something unbelievable.
Due to Covid and travel restrictions a celebration of life will be held at a later date.
