Beulah (Joiner) Duckels born August 17, 1909 near Hettick, Illinois, to George W. and Nancy Joiner passed away October 25th, 2011 in Deland, Florida, her home since 1995. Beulah married Theodore Duckels in May 1933, and made their home in Chesterfield, Illinois on a farm where they later started and operated the Duckels Bible Camp.

Eighteen of those years were in Marietta, Ohio, living near her daughter Thelma. She was pre-deceased by her husband and all her siblings. Her daughters, Thelma (Lou) Nicholes, Faye (John) Rueck, 7 grandchildren (along with their spouses), 17 great grandchildren and many friends will miss her greatly but rejoice in her long, full life and in her preparedness for her Heavenly Home.
