May 22, 1930-Dec. 24, 2017
Beulah Cleveland Morton, a resident of Longmont, Colorado, passed away on Dec. 24, 2017. Beulah was born May 22, 1930, the fifth of seven 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. She moved to Omaha, Nebraska, where she met her husband, Lt. Col. Langdon Morton, Jr. They were married in a beautiful ceremony in her hometown of Marshall on July 28, 1963. They moved to Fort Benjamin Harrison, Ind., where Langdon was in Army Finance School. After Langdon’s overseas assignment with the United States Army, they moved to South Dakota and later 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 loved collecting beautiful things including antiques and vintage collectibles. In 1975 Beulah became the founder and charter member of the Long’s Peak Questers, Chapter 735. Together Langdon and Beulah 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 and was very involved at the State level in other capacities. Beulah was proud to be of service to her beloved 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 is now in heaven with her Beloved Savior, Jesus Christ. She is survived by her sister, Carole Hayden of Willmar and many nieces, nephews and friends.
A memorial service honoring Beulah and her husband Langdon, who predeceased her, will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, at the Minneota Community Center. This will be an opportunity for family and friends to gather in Minnesota to remember and honor them.
