Beulah was raised on a farm in Bladen County alongside her eleven siblings. She began writing a soldier, Irving Maynard, during the Korean War that began a romance that lasted over 40 years. Together with her husband, Irving, they raised four wonderful children and traveled the world. Nothing was more important to them than family.
