Pastor Beulah Knieriem

Pastor Beulah Knieriem, 82, entered into rest Thursday, July 4, 2013, after a lengthy illness.

Beulah was born in Appomattox, Virginia and attended Lynchburg College, where she met her husband, Bob, while they were both involved in the drama program. Beulah moved to Cleveland with her husband, where they were both employed in the Cleveland City School District, Beulah being both a kindergarten and third grade teacher. Beulah was a cancer survivor and it was during this battle with the disease that she received her calling into the ministry. She graduated from Ashland Seminary and became Pastor of Litchfield United Church of Christ in Litchfield.

Beulah leaves behind two daughters, Shawn Knieriem and Robin Bradach; her son-in-law, Robert; and three grandsons, Timothy, Nicholas and Daniel; as well as many friends and parishioners.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 53 years, Robert; and her daughter, Roxanne.

Pastor Beulah’s memorial service will be held Saturday, August 10, 2013, at Litchfield United Church of Christ, 3928 Avon Lake Road, Litchfield, at 11 A.M.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Litchfield UCC or the Cleveland Animal Protective League.
