Jay and Beulah lived and raised their family on their farm south of Dexter where they lived for many blessed years (over 55 years). They farmed and raised Angus cattle for over 20 of those years. Beulah was an amazing cook, she worked at Bentlers Café and Dexter Café, and everyone talked about the amazing pies, chicken noodles, and even her oatmeal. Her favorite customers were the eight loving children that they raised and taught the family recipes to. She and Jay enjoyed making cookies and other goodies for the grandchildren and family members. She enjoyed reading and spent many an evening watching Iowa State play basketball and football.

Beulah loved the Lord and gave her life to him at a young age and shared her faith openly to all of those around her. She attended the Methodist Church in Dexter, and enjoyed going to weekly bible study. She loved being with family and encouraging everyone in all they did.

Beulah was proceeded in death by her husband Jay Nevitt, father Charles Everett, mother Esther, sisters Betty and Glenna
