Beulah Cleveland Morton, 87, resident of Longmont, Colorado, passed away on December 24, 2017.
A memorial service honoring Beulah and her husband Langdon who predeceased her, will be held at the Minneota Community Center on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at 11 a.m.
This will be an opportunity for family and friends to gather in Minnesota to remember and honor them. Beulah was born on May 22, 1930, the 5th of 7 children born to Carlton and Etta Cleveland.
She was born at their family farm in southwestern Minnesota and was raised and attended school in Marshall. She worked as the Assistant Chief at Northwestern Bell in Marshall for several years and made many friends. She moved to Omaha, Nebraska and lived with her sister, Beverly.
It was there she met her husband, Lt. Col. Langdon Morton, Jr., who was attending the University of Nebraska.
They were married in a beautiful ceremony in her hometown of Marshall on July 28, 1963. They enjoyed a one-week vacation at a resort near Park Rapids, MN.
They then drove to Fort Benjamin Harrison, IN where Langdon was in Army Finance School.
After Langdon’s overseas assignment with the United States Army, the couple moved to South Dakota. Langdon’s military position required travel and Beulah was frequently able to travel with him. His career later moved them to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas and Fort Shafter, Hawaii.
After Langdon’s retirement the couple moved to Longmont, Colorado where they were long-time residents. Beulah and Langdon owned and operated the Candlelight House, an antique and art gallery, where they also served luncheons.
Beulah also loved collecting beautiful things. In 1975, Beulah became the Founder and Charter Member of the Long’s Peak Questers, Chapter 735.
Creating a Quester chapter came naturally to Beulah because of her love of antiques and vintage collectibles and helping to preserve the past.
The main purpose of questers is to “preserve the past”, by saving and restoring historical buildings and artifacts of all kinds.
Langdon was very supportive and interested as well, and together they enjoyed collecting for many, many years and supporting Quester activities.
Beulah served her Quester organization in numerous capacities, both local, state and International (U.S. and Canada) with great pride and dignity throughout her 43 years as a very dedicated member.
Beulah proudly served as Colorado State Quester President from 1978 to 1980.
She also was very involved at the State level in other capacities, i.e. Chairman of the Nominating Committee, Chairman of the Audit Committee, Chairman of the P&R Committee, Member of Silent Auction Committee, and assisted with other special committees.
Beulah was proud to be of service to her beloved Longs Peak Questers and held every office (more than once) in this chapter including President, V.P., Secretary, Treasurer, Parliamentarian, Historian, and served on special committees.
Beulah was involved with the Red Hat Society, the Daughters of the American Revolution, and enjoyed her involvement with the Callahan House in Longmont.
She also enjoyed researching her family’s ancestry, reading, studying any number of topics including politics and religion, and spending time with her many dear friends. She was very close to her family and was lovingly called “Auntie Bootsie.”
She is now in heaven with her Beloved Savior, Jesus Christ. She is survived by her sister, Carole Hayden of Willmar, MN and many nieces, nephews and friends.
