Helen Florence Beaman of The Jordan LifeCare Centre, formerly of Prosser Brook, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Wednesday, May 26, 2021 at the age of 76. She was born in Corn Hill on December 23, 1944 to the late Ora and Bertha (Harper) Dunfield.
After attending teachers college in Fredericton, Helen went on to teach in various schools in the Petitcodiac area. She then met and married Paul Beaman in 1971, when they took over the family farm in Prosser Book and raised a family of four boys.
She was a faithful member of The Salisbury Baptist Church and a Dominion Life Member of the Baptist Women’s Missionary Society. She was involved in church ministries including youth group, Sunday school, Pioneer Girls, Little Lights program, and was always willing to cook and serve for any occasion.
Homelife was always busy on the farm; raising four active boys, raking hay, and filling countless bottles of maple syrup. She loved entertaining at the sugar camp and feeding the masses; especially serving her famous brown bread. There was always room for one more around the table. She enjoyed working in her flower garden and always loved when her family got together, especially her precious grandchildren. Family reunions and Labour day camping weekend for turkey supper were favourite occasions.
