MANSFIELD: A faithful Christian, Wanda May Beal sought God for guidance and direction. She loved children, and as a young woman taught elementary education in Kentucky. If you’d ask Wanda, her mission was to share Christ’s love to those kids. Faithful in God’s Word she never missed an opportunity to talk about Christ. All of her nieces and nephews were given bibles signed with heartfelt messages.

Now at rest, Wanda May Beal of Mansfield passed away Thursday February 10, 2011 in Winchester Terrace Nursing Home.

Wanda was born May 8, 1926 in Mansfield, the daughter of Dale and Hazel (Kirkpatrick) Beal and graduated from Mansfield Senior High School in 1944. For four years Wanda studied at Ashland College and in 1948 received her Bachelors Degree.

After residing in Kentucky, Wanda moved back to Mansfield to care for her mother.

For over 20 years Wanda worked as a teller for Richland Bank and retired in 1991.

Meticulous and detailed, Wanda was a self-taught carpenter. She built bookcases and other furniture for family and friends.

Wanda was a member of Mansfield First Alliance Church where she was former Sunday school teacher and also attended Keenagers.

She is survived by her sister Norma Simmons of Mansfield, sister and brother-in-law Evadene and Lewis Walters of Tennessee; and several nieces, nephews and extended family.

Along with her parents she was preceded in death by her sisters Betty Shaffer and Janice Steele, and her brother Bill Beal.
