Alice White V. Beam
CARLISLE – Alice White V. Beam, 96, entered into eternal life on Friday, Jan. 24, 2014, at the Church of God Home, Carlisle.
She moved there in April 2013, from her Letort Manor Apartment. Prior to July 2011, she was a resident of Boiling Springs for 40 years.
Alice was born on Jan. 31, 1917, in Lewistown, to the late Clyde W. and Elsie Hunt Horner. She was preceded in death by her husbands, Eslin White and Glenn Beam.
Alice was a member of the St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church and sang in the choir. She was previously employed by Knouse Foods, Masland Carpets and Sheaffer Trucking.
Alice enjoyed reading, flowers, her family and taking care of her home. In years past, she was known as the “Rose Lady,” for the beautiful roses she grew and loved so much. Alice was always willing to share with family and friends, especially at the “beauty shop.” She was very generous to all and had a great capacity to comfort others. Her greatest pleasure came at the holidays, when she would cook a feast for her family, until the task became too much. She was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother, and will be missed by friends as well as family.
Surviving are: her daughter and son-in-law, Kathleen V. (Tom) Crum, of Carlisle; her daughter-in-law, Delores White, of Mt. Holly Springs; grandchildren, Debra White, David White and Timothy Kuhn; four great-grandchildren; two greatgreat-grandchildren; two sisters, Esther Eslick, of Arizona, and Bernice Begel of Pheonixville; and a brother, Donald (Ruth) Horner, of Belleville.
She was preceded in death by: her son, Donald A. White; grandsons, Harry B. “Joey” Kuhn III, Daniel “Danny” White and Duane White; a brother, Clyde Horner; and sisters, Bertha Goss, Anna Lehman and Ruth Bridge.
The family would like to thank everyone for cards, flowers, calls and kindness during their time of sorrow. Special thanks to the staff at the home, particularly those closely involved with her wonderful care and support during her stay and especially during the last months and weeks of her life.
A memorial services will be held at 2 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 30, 2014, at the Church of God Chapel, 801 N. Hanover St., Carlisle, with Chaplin Bradley Moore officiating.
