She was born August 31, 1923, at Vista, Missouri, to James and Freda Johnson Kelley.

On July 29, 1991, she married George Roberts, who preceded her in death on April 13, 2004. Mrs. Roberts raised her family in Hutton Valley, Missouri and was always willing to help out anyone in need, especially by bringing food as she was an avid and wonderful cook. She enjoyed music, especially southern gospel and played piano by ear. She served for thirty years as organist at Pomona Christian Church; volunteered at Ozarks Medical Center as well as playing the piano at Willow Care Nursing Home to lead residents in song. She once said that if she could have chosen a career, she would have been a nurse, because she loved helping people.
Beulah was kind and loving with a great sense of humor and will be missed by her four children, Steve Caton, wife, Barbara, Pomona, Missouri; Terry Nicholson, Willow Springs, Missouri; Judy Brasier, husband, John, Pomona, Missouri and Sue Smith, husband, Ron, Washington, Illinois; ten grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren and countless others whose lives she touched.
