Dorothy Jean Beal

July 21, 1928 ~ March 17, 2015 (age 86)


GREENSBORO – Dorothy Beal, 86, left her earthly home on Tuesday, March 17, 2015, for her heavenly home.  Her savior and family that went on before her embraced her joyfully.  Among them were her parents and her beloved husband of 60 years, John Beal. 

She leaves behind a wonderful legacy.  She and Dad had five children, Kathy Bixby, Barbara Fyfe, John Matthew Beal (Karen), Susan Brooks (Mike), and Robert Beal.  Also, nine grandchildren and many great-grandchildren.  Also, surviving brother-in-law Richard Beal (Janet) and sister-in-law Mary Klachan (Steve).  Dorothy was treasured by her family and it was an honor to care and protect her in her last years.

All thru her life she volunteered with her church, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, and many organizations that the five children joined.  She spent a lot of time as an air force wife moving from base to base in the United States, Germany, and Turkey.  It was strong family ties that were strengthened every time we moved.  Dorothy loved singing and joined church choirs wherever we were located.

When she moved to Countryside Village in Stokesdale, she felt so accepted and loved.  She became a member a Flat Rock United Methodist Church and felt at home immediately.

Our sincere thanks to Greensboro Hospice and Palliative Care of Greensboro for their wonderful care of mom and to all who were involved in her care.

As an avid animal lover, she requested that in lieu of flowers, consider a donation to:  Juliet’s House Animal Rescue in care of Angela Appleburg, 2926 Shadyview Dr., High Point, NC 27265.

Her ashes will be returned to Maryland to rest with her husband’s at the VA Cemetery.  A service is being planned for this summer.
