Obituary

Beulah Edna Dermyer, our beloved mother, passed away with her family by her side on August 15, 2021, at the age of 90. She was under the care of Careline Hospice. Beulah and her husband, Pete, have resided at Fieldstone at Tecumseh Place for the last two years. They spent 71 years together before Pete passed away in January of 2021. Beulah is survived by her children, Pete Dermyer of Ariz.; Dennis Dermyer of Ariz; Myra (Steve) Wolfley of Ariz.; and Corky (Bobby) Ellis of Florida. Her three grandchildren who live locally are Kelly (Clint) Allen, Mary MacDonald and Kristopher Dermyer. Out west she has Shayla and Joe, Kendra, Lindsey, Daniel, Jordan, Cyndi and James, Sonya, Joe and Lily, Sharon and Teresa. Mitchell and Mason are in Florida. She has 13 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister, Rose Ann (Richard) Herriman of Fla.; brothers, Eugene Withrow of Adrian and Arnold Withrow of Idaho; sisters-in-law, Lois Withrow and Dottie Withrow of Tecumseh; Barb Withrow of Tipton; Mary Jane Gibson of Clinton; brother-in-law, Daniel (Norena) Dermyer; and several nieces and nephews. Beulah was also preceded in death by her parents, Harry and Edna (Tirb) Withrow; and siblings, Vernita (Harold) Kopka, Donald Withrow, Harry Withrow II, Jack Withrow, Fred Withrow and Helen Withrow. Beulah was born in Bridgewater Township and raised on a farm in Tipton. She graduated from Tecumseh High School in 1949 and married Stanley P. Dermyer on September 24, 1949. She was a faithful wife, devoted mother and loving grandmother. She was a member at the First Baptist Church of Tecumseh where she taught Sunday School for several years. She also belonged to the Extension Club where she learned cake decorating and other crafts. She loved baking "comfort food" for her family and trying new recipes. When the kids went to high school, she went with them, working in the high school cafeteria until she retired. She enjoyed camping, riding motorcycles, traveling and visiting family. She loved her family beyond words. She was a kind and generous friend who was well loved and will be forever missed. A memorial service will be held on September 24, 2021 at the Covenant Church in Tecumseh. There will be a time of fellowship and visiting from 1-2 p.m., followed by a service at 2 p.m. Her cremains will be buried following the service at Brookside Cemetery, next to Pete, on what would have been their 72nd wedding anniversary.
