Beulah was born on January 13, 1926, in Henry, SD, to Leonard and Ethel (Rennie) Boyd. She graduated from Henry High School in 1944. Beulah completed her beautician training in 1945 at the Watertown Beauty Academy and began working with the Watertown Beauticians’ Unit. In 1960, she began working at Jenkins Living Center, retiring in 1993.
On December 4, 1949, Beulah married Victor Zwieg, during a snowstorm, at the Henry Methodist Church in Henry, SD. Victor preceded her in death on May 1, 1993. The couple celebrated 44 years of marriage.
Beulah participated in many activities including bus travels, being a member of the Henriettes’ Pinochle group and bowling at Tommy’s and the Plateau for many years. She enjoyed eating out on Saturday nights, camping at Lake Kampeska and attending family reunions. In addition, Beulah spent many hours crocheting and sewing along with other craft hobbies.
Beulah is survived by her children, Janice (David) Schlueter of Woodbury, MN, and David (Margy) Zwieg of Madison, WI; three grandchildren: David (Susan) Schlueter of Cottage Grove, MN, Daniel Schlueter of Minneapolis, MN, and Nickolas Zwieg of Milwaukee, WI; two great-grandchildren, Charles David Schlueter and Jack David Schlueter; many nieces and nephews; and her very special niece, Carlee (Paul) Reinschmidt, Watertown, SD, who was the “other daughter” in her life.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Victor; her parents; one sister, Doris Bunde; and numerous brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law.
A special thank you to her family members, her friends and her caretakers at Jenkins Living Center.
