Please share a memory of Beulah to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Beulah Norris Storie, age 99, of Sampson Road, Boone, passed away Friday morning, April 7, 2023 at Glenbridge Health & Rehabilitation. Born May 24, 1923 in Watauga County and was one of eleven children of Everette and Harriet Clawson Norris. Beulah was a member of Friendship United Methodist Church. She announced many times that she had three wonderful children. She was most proud of all of her grandchildren and held a special place in her heart for her great-great grandsons. Visitors were always welcomed into the Storie home and most were treated to a slice of her famous homemade sourdough bread or a piece of her freshly baked cream cheese pound cake.
Mrs. Storie is survived by her children, Nelson Storie and wife, Gail, of Blowing Rock and daughters, Norma Cook of Boone and Judy Wellborn and husband, Buck, of Boone; grandsons, David Edmisten and Douglas Edmisten; granddaughters, Shelia Bledsoe and husband, Tim and April Herron; great-granddaughter, Elyse McDaniel and husband, Stephen; and great-great grandsons, Holden, Keegan and Donovan. Many nieces and nephews also survive.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Kermit Nelson Storie; brothers, Russell, Allie, Grant, Reid, Grady and Tracy, and sisters, Annie, Orpha, Bertie and Ruby; son-in-law, Tom Cook; and sister-in-law, Agnes Miller.
