Beloved mother and grandmother, Beulah Carolyn Gilliam, age 90, of Chelsea, Oklahoma, passed from this life on the evening of Monday, May 15, 2023, surrounded by her family.
Beulah was born in Vanceburg, Kentucky on October 31, 1932, to Alvin and Lillian (Sellers) Davis. She married her husband Ollie Oscar Gilliam and together they had three children, Gary, Debi, and Barb. She was a loving mother and grandma with a stubborn streak. She never met a stranger and enjoyed shopping, reading Harlequin romance novels, collecting mini baskets, playing games and bingo, and roses, especially the orange ones.
She is preceded in death by her husband of 73 years, Ollie Gilliam, son Gary Gilliam, and great-granddaughter Pachience Peterson.
Left behind to honor her memory are daughters, Debi Villalobos and husband Rex, and Barb Rawdon and husband Gary; grandchildren, Jason White, Jessica Hill and husband Jamie, Missie Peterson and husband Mike, and Zachery Villalobos; great-grandchildren, Taysia Hopper, Tyler Hill, Bryson Hill, Shiloh Hill, Tyler Peterson, Austin Peterson, Torrey White, and Eldon White; and great-great-grandson, Abel Hopper; as well as many other members of her extended family.
Beulah will be missed with all that knew her, but her memory will live on through her family.
