Beulah E. Kent, 90, died on September 7, 2016 at the Gosnell Memorial Hospice House in Scarborough, where she was surrounded by her loving family.
Beulah was born in the High Pine area of Wells on October 24, 1925 the daughter of Irving J. and Abbie F. (Hatch) Perkins. She grew up on a farm where her father grew all the food for the family. Beulah went to Wells High School and then attended Kennebunk High School, where she graduated with the Class of 1943. In 1944, she married her life-long partner and love, Frank for 63 years. Together they were blessed with four children.
Beulah enjoyed crocheting, Disney characters and giving them as Christmas gifts. She became a Girl Scout leader for four years after moving to New Jersey in 1956. Beulah was a talented musician who enjoyed playing the piano and guitar during picnics in the yard as the men challenged each other in a good game of horse shoes. Every summer as a family they vacationed in East Waterboro on Little Ossipee Lake where she and Frank built a home; staying there until a few years ago when they moved around the block to live. Both she and Frank had a love for German shepherd puppies and their 12 year old, Diana, gave them both joy and comfort. Of course she beautiful!
Beulah joined the Massabesic Lions Club and was very active for over ten years. She loved baking pies, growing roses, gardening and watching birds at the feeders on the back deck. Beulah was fun to be with; with her great sense of humor, her willingness to serve others and she will be dearly missed by her family and many friends.
