Beulah Jean Coughler


Beulah Jean Coughler of Morrisburg passed away peacefully at Longfields Manor, Ottawa on Sunday, February 22, 2015. She was in her 92nd year. 

Beulah lived on Alice Street in Morrisburg, for many years.  As a young lady she worked at the Civic Hospital. She baby sat many children through the years, and as her parents aged she took care of them as well.

Beulah was an excellent seamstress; being self-employed was how she made her living. She never married and family and her church were of prime importance to her.  She moved in later years to Longfields Manor in Ottawa to be closer to her church family.

Beaulah was the loving sister of Denelda McKoy and Joyce Bellefontaine, both of Cornwall. 

She was cherished aunt of Sheila and Wayne McHaffie of Morrisburg, and she will be sadly missed by numerous nieces Rita, Linda, Aileen, Louella, Barbara, nephews Raymond, Marshall, John and cousins.

Beulah is also survived by many great nieces and nephews as well as many great-great nieces and nephews.  

She was predeceased by her parents Andrew and Pearl (nee Froats) Coughler, sisters Aileen Coughler, Lillian Brunet, brothers Miles, John, Nelson, Basil and Wendell Coughler, nieces Shirley, Marlene, Yvonne, Patsy, Anna and nephew Charles.

Family and friends were received at the Parker Funeral Home, 28 Sir James Morris Drive, Morrisburg on Thursday from 2–4 and 7–9 p.m. 

The funeral service was held in the chapel on Friday, February 27, 2015, at 11 a.m.  The Officiant was Wayne Van Den Dries and the organist was Anna Crandlemire. The hymns sung were ‘My Saviour Bids Me Sing His Praise’ and ‘In Lowliness the Saviour Came’.
